There seems to be an awakening. Some see it. Others are trying.
The awakening is to who we are. And the recurring descriptor is “Broken.”
Those who see it aren’t loathing about it, much like the enemy would want.
Others are allowing him to tattoo “Damaged Goods” on their minds and souls.
Yes, it’s true. We’re all broken. God knew that the minute he breathed life into our lungs.
Yet, it may take experiencing brokenness to see our reflection.
In that moment when we see the imperfections, the scars, or the quirks, we have a choice. Whose voice will we believe?
The enemy cries, “You’re worthless. Done. Pitiful. Useless. Ugly. Undesirable. Lost Forever. Unlovable.” On and on he goes.
Our Creator whispers, “I created you. You have eternal purpose. I love you unconditionally. Your scars are beautiful to me.” On and on he counters.
In their song “Scars,” I Am They sing about this truth. They declare that their eyes have been opened by their deepest pain, the brokenness that brought them back to their Creator. Instead of hating their scars, they say they are thankful for them because they now stand in confidence, they are not who they were before, and they can tell a story of God’s faithfulness and deliverance.
When you sing about your brokenness, what are the lyrics? Whose cries or whispers do you share?
