This is blowing my mind

17 10 2008

Went to Passion Hong Kong last night, and it kicked my ass on a lot of things. I’ve been so dry recently, mostly from being tired all the time, and perhaps because I’m just not in a place where the only thing I cando is depend on the grace and mercy of God. But this song came on just now, after a conversation with some students, and my heart is breaking anew.

Jeremy Riddle – Sweetly Broken
From the album Sweetly Broken

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

Chorus:
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

What it means to be broken-hearted

I’ve finished lessons for the day, and I’m astounded by His goodness. Classes were fun and I appreciated the textbook a lot for History as we could do the questions at the end of the section and it was good just quietly helping individual students out. Some days, I miss the intimacy of tutoring.

My wrist is hurting quite a bit though… this is being the worst sprain I’ve ever had.
