Afraid of Being Broken // A Poem


so His light can shine through our cracks 
so His love can spill out from within 

so we're continually in need of being filled with His Spirit

I want to pray 
for Him to break me
if it would bring Him glory 

I want to pray
for Him to send pain my way
if it would point someone to His eternal kingdom  

I want to pray 
for Him to give me suffering and trials
if it be His will

but I'm afraid 
I fear 
the pain
the hurt
the suffering 
I can't
I can't do it

I want to be broken
broken for Christ
broken so I need Him more
but it hurts 
I'm afraid 
I shouldn't be afraid 
I should trust
trust Him
trust His goodness 

but still 
I don't
I hold back
I watch others
I want the all-or-none relationship they have 
with Him 

my Savior
my King
my Kinsman Redeemer

He's just as much in my soul 
as He is in theirs
in the hearts of 'better' believers 

so why should I fear
what man may do unto me? 
greater is He that is in me
than he that is in the world... 

Easter post coming soon... 


  1. Wow, this is so beautiful, Faith! <3

  2. That's good, Faith.
    BOLD, and true.

    1. Thank you, Amy. :) Boldness is something I've been praying for.

  3. This poem is so wonderful, Faith! I love it! :)
    Also that song is great! I don't think that I had heard it before.

    1. Thank you so much, Rebekah! :D
      Yes, it really is!! I got Tenth Avenue North's Followers CD with that song last month, I guess it was. So good!! :)

  4. HI Faith! That poem reminds me of one I wrote titled "Teach Me to Weep." I actually need someone to read it and give me suggestions on how to perfect it. Would you be willing to do that for me? I'll email it to you when you accept. Thank you!

    1. Hey! :) I don't know how great of a critiquer I am, but I would absolutely be willing to give you any feedback I can!

    2. You don't have a contacts me widget. I posted it on my blog, so if you go to the first post is that poem. It needs a lot of work, so anything helps. Thanks! I really appreciate it.

    3. Whoops, sorry about that! I have a contact widget on my other blog, so I've never really needed one over here. :P I just left a comment over there for you!
