Broken Things

So I’m in the process of writing a long Post about goals and my laptop breaks down, go figure eh? πŸ™‚

Life is messy, beautiful and oh so unpredictable. I was listening to the song ‘Broken Things by Matthew West’ just now, whilst putting dishes away, and emotion overcame me so strongly. I’ve heard this song a bunch of times before without that effect so I feel led to post it.

Feel free to follow my public playlist ‘Worship’ on youtube. –> https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL692CC8B3D10B1E03

Here’s the lyrics to Broken things.

If grace was a kingdom
I stopped at the gate
Thinking I don’t deserve to pass through after all the mistakes that I’ve made

Oh but I heard a whisper
As Heaven bent down
Said, “Child, don’t you know that the first will be last and the last get a crown”

Now I’m just a beggar in the presence of a King
I wish I could bring so much more
But if it’s true You use broken things
Then here I am Lord, I’m all Yours

The pages of history they tell me it’s true
That it’s never the perfect; it’s always the ones with the scars that You use

It’s the rebels and the prodigals; it’s the humble and the weak
All the misfit heroes You chose
Tell me there’s hope for sinners like me

Now I’m just a beggar in the presence of a King
I wish I could bring so much more
But if it’s true You use broken things
Then here I am Lord, I’m all Yours

Grace is a kingdom
With gates open wide
There’s a seat at the table just waiting for you
So, come on inside

Enjoy- whoever this was for. Maybe it was just me, but doesn’t hurt to share the wealth πŸ’—
