Mending the fractured heart

We have loved
and lost
We are wounded
and in pain
We have sinned
and been forgiven
We have fallen short
of the Glory of God
But, by offering our pain and melding it to the arms of our Savior on the Cross, 
placing our worries under the flowing blood of our Redeemer
loving as He loved
forgiving as he forgives
we can once and for all
release our agony
 laying it bare, raw, and unyielding at His Feet
And with his grace, 
his mercy
his compassion,
we can become one with Him
and we can choose to forgive
choose to go on
and choose to love
And through the fissures in our heart,
the holes in our soul, 
the tears that cascade in the darkness of the night
His healing balm enters in and mends our broken hearts
and we are new once again

Who healeth the broken of heart, and bindeth up their bruises. Psalm 147:3

He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.  1 Peter 2:24
