Matthew West – Broken Things

This song has been running through my head the last few days.  I love that God can take someone who is broken and still use me!

If grace was a kingdom
I stopped at the gate
Thinking I don’t deserve to pass through after all the mistakes that I’ve made

After all the mistakes that I’ve made

Oh but I heard a whisper
As Heaven bent down
Said, “Child, don’t you know that the first will be last and the last get a crown”

Now I’m just a beggar in the presence of a King
I wish I could bring so much more
But if it’s true You use broken things
Then here I am Lord, I’m all Yours

You use broken things

The pages of history they tell me it’s true.
That it’s never the perfect; it’s always the ones with the scars that You use

It’s the rebels and the prodigals; it’s the humble and the weak
All the misfit heroes You chose
Tell me there’s hope for sinners like me

It’s always the ones with the scars that You use

Now I’m just a beggar in the presence of a King
I wish I could bring so much more
But if it’s true You use broken things
Then here I am Lord, I’m all Yours

Grace is a kingdom
With gates open wide

Grace is a kingdom
With gates open wide
There’s a seat at the table just waiting for you
So, come on inside

 

Romans 8:39
Nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God. Romans 8:39
