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

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.
