Broken By Perfect Love


Broken by Perfect Love

Thank You for tears of the years released
For knowledge within my gut
That when all the shaking uncertainty
Stopped
Jesus alone would be left standing.

Praise You for Your grace,
Which enabled me to place,
The cutting edge of Your Word
To my infected, imperfect soul,
Not to run away with the job half done

For Your incredible love which saw beyond,
 Where the pieces of self, pride, lack of wisdom, unthinking comments and presumption lay
To the possibility of little girl innocence restored
Jesus gently pursued and worked on that task,
Setting me miraculously FREE.

The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise. (NIV)


There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. (NIV)


You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness. (NIV)
