Broken and Restored

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

“The sacrifice pleasing to God is a broken spirit.
God, You will not despise a broken and humbled heart.”
Psalm 51:17 HCSB
 
 
broken…
shattered into a thousand
razor-sharp pieces
that wound
revealing flesh –
pride
hatred
bitterness
unforgiveness
…sin
my sin
the kind that nailed my Savior
to an old, rugged cross
drawing His blood
wounding His heart
revealing His mercy
a bonding mercy
that puts my broken pieces
back together
not as before
but new
restored by grace
for the Master’s use

in Video 2 of Nehemiah: a heart that can break.
