Afraid of Being Broken // A Poem

broken 

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

broken
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...
