Broken and Wrong

Broken and Wrong
Marina Bromley, Marina's Kitchen Table


I’m not very good at many things, but one thing I am pretty accomplished at: being wrong. 



So often I can stop God’s best momentum in its track, believing I’m too broken, failed too often, am too scarred and gray to amount to much. And certainly God has MUCH more talented people to use than me, right? I sound like Punchinello straight out of a Max Lucado children’s book, except instead of letting others put labels and stickers on me I’m slapping them on myself. Can anyone else relate? 
.
I have heard this song many times, even sang along on the chorus (and probably made up my own lyrics to sing!), but today I HEARD the lyrics as the author intended. God chooses to use us as we are, broken, scarred, sickly and imperfect. He is not done with us, and we are still under construction.
.
I’m so thankful for His mercy, so grateful for the cross, so amazed that in the midst of my sinful imperfections He chooses to work in me and through me. I’m humbled, and yet this is the way He intended it to be.
