sweetly broken

The lyrics of these two songs are so powerful. I hear these songs all the time on the radio or my iPod, but I never actually read the lyrics and let them sink in. If you choose to listen to the songs through the videos I provided, read over the lyrics and really digest them. Allow them to speak to you and think about what parts of your life need to be broken. I’ll admit my pride needs to be broken. After a year of tremendous growth in my walk and following Christ, I’ve gotten prideful in my thinking. I have to remind myself that all of the blessings in my life are from God, nothing I’ve done. It’s all God’s grace becoming physical, I need stand firm on his Word and remember that without him I am nothing. I come from dirt and end as dirt. But with Christ, I can remain in his arms for eternity.

To the cross I look, to the cross I cling
Of its suffering I do drink
Of its work I do sing
For on it my Savior both bruised and crushed
Showed that God is love
And God is just

At the cross You beckon me
You draw me gently to my knees, and I am
Lost for words, so lost in love,
I’m sweetly broken, wholly surrendered

What a priceless gift, undeserved life
Have I been given
Through Christ crucified
You’ve called me out of death
You’ve called me into life
And I was under Your wrath
Now through the cross I’m reconciled

In awe of the cross I must confess
How wondrous Your redeeming love and
How great is Your faithfulness

-Sweetly Broken by Jeremy Riddle

You dance over me
While I am unaware
You sing all around
But I never hear a sound.

Lord, I’m amazed by You!
Lord, I’m amazed by You!
Lord, I’m amazed by You,
how You love me!

How wide,
How deep,
How great is Your love for me!

Lord, I’m amazed by You!
Lord, I’m amazed by You!
Lord, I’m amazed by You,
how You love me!
