I’ve Been Broken (But I’ve Been Blessed)

  • 13 May 2014

If you’ve been reading my posts lately, you’ll notice that I’ve been listening to Karen Peck and New River’s Revival CD a lot lately. There are seasons where different recordings minister to me. Right now, this one does every time I hear it.

As I was reviewing the CD last week, I read along as they sang, “I’ve Been Broken.” With the permission of the songwriter, Daryl Williams, I’d like to share the lyrics with you.

The blessing of a broken heart is what God chose to use
He never had His eye off me though His hedge had been reduced
Like Job, He let my soul be tried even though He knew the cost
My victory would be so much more than anything I lost

I am a lyric person, and there is so much in just that one verse. Take time to meditate on each line. I especially like the second and fourth lines. Now let’s look at the second verse.

If you don’t see a reason for the trial you’re walking through
Just keep your faith established on the Word of living truth
Our God is faithful to the end, and He will never change
He knows when it’s over, that you can help me say

I’ve been broken but I’ve been blessed
I’ve been down yet I have found His peace and rest
I’ve known the emptiness of failure when there was nothing left
I’ve been broken but I’ve been blessed

I trust that is your testimony as well. I know it’s mine. I am so grateful for God’s redeeming grace. If you are broken today, keep looking up. God has not left you. Keep drawing near to Him, and He will draw near to you. I trust you will see His blessings once again.
