cracks exposed

we have all been shattered
in ways we can't yet comprehend
and perhaps will not understand
until the day we look into His eyes
the One who collects every shard
to rebuild His beloved creation
torn apart by the ways of man

it is our brokenness
that both sets us apart
and unites us

if we could lay down the burden
the heavy weight of trying to hide 
the cracks and bruises
and see them instead
as holy places
waiting to be healed
accepting His mark, scarred 
but shining for His glory

Going through the motions doesn't please you,
    a flawless performance is nothing to you.
I learned God-worship
    when my pride was shattered.
Heart-shattered lives ready for love
    don’t for a moment escape God’s notice
