Brokenness is a spiritual gift,
God has given to each of us.
It's in the times we are crushed,
that our hearts to Him adjust.
Though it may be painful,
it's something we must go through.
When it's time to look in the mirror,
our sinfulness He brings to view.
It is not a pretty picture,
when you look, you'll see the cracks.
But, it's God's way for you to see,
what your spirit truly lacks.
Once you look beyond the figure,
that is staring you in the face.
You'll begin to see the reasons,
you need His saving grace.
I have looked into that mirror,
and saw my own flawed condition.
I saw how my sin and pride,
kept me from full submission.
Yes, brokenness is a spiritual gift,
given so that we may come to see.
The reflection of our Lord and Savior,
in the hearts of you and me.
Psalm 34 18: "The Lord is near to the
brokenhearted and saves those who are
crushed in spirit".
