starting afresh.

i have been avoiding my journal and my blog like the plague, as i have feared what i might write. i was terrified of pouring out my emotions, my failures, my longings, my brokenness, my emptiness.

i journaled for almost an hour last night.
yesterday, at englewood, ben preached an amazing sermon. the choir sang beautifully. but that wasn't what did it for me. instead, it was a simple chorus, intermingled with an old hymn.

I come broken to be mended.
I come wounded to be healed.
I come desperate to be rescued.
I come empty to be filled.
I come guilty to be pardoned
by the blood of Christ, the Lamb.
And I'm welcomed, with open arms,
Praise God,
Just as I am.

and the truth is just that:
i am broken, wounded, desperate, empty, guilty.
He is mending, healing, rescuing, filling, pardoning, welcoming.

I am so undeserving.
Praise Him for His great mercy on me.

  1. You are right. He is always caring for us and sides on us. He is LOVE. I was in the same worship service and was looking for the music file for the song!


Please please please talk to me!
I'd love to hear your opinions.
