I loved you when I first saw you. I knew you would be my everything. You made me laugh and smile, something I stopped doing for a while. We’re part of His plan. He knew we would be together before we knew. He was preparing our hearts long ago. While we were both hurt and faced many challenges He was shaping and molding us to be a perfect fit. We continue to face challenges as all marriages do. I promise to give you all my heart. There is only one before you and that’s the way it should be. With Jesus first all things will fall in place. Hang in there through our challenges. Stay strong and lead me with strong hands. Allow those challenges to grow our marriage and build everlasting bonds. I love you always and with all of me.
You had a lot of crooks try to steal your heart. Never really had any luck. Couldn’t ever figure out how to love.
You had a lot of moments that didn’t last forever. Now your in the corner trying to put it together. How to love.
You never credit yourself so now when you got older it seems like you come back ten times over. Now your sitting here in the damn corner looking through all your thoughts and looking over your shoulder.
You had a lot of crooks try to steal your heart. Never really had luck. How to love.
When you had a lot of dreams that transformed to visions. The fact that you saw the world affected all your decisions but it wasn’t your fault. It wasn’t your intentions.
I saw a lot of crooks and crooks still crooked. So you had a lot of crooks try to steal your heart. Never really had luck. How to love.
You see I just wanted you to know that you deserve the best. Your beautiful and your far from the usual.
So you had a lot of crooks try to steal your heart. You had a lot of moments that didn’t last forever. Never really had any luck. Couldn’t figure out how to love. How to love. –Lil Wayne
Brokenness- to be out of working order, not function, horse broken, a broken spirit, submissive
Some might think to be broken might mean to be sad or to go through a great loss. True brokenness is to be broken as a horse is broken and submits to his master. We must first admit we are broken as in ‘not working order’ or ‘not functioning’ before God can make changes in our heart so we can feel better. We have to be broken for God to fix us. We have to admit we don’t have it all together.
This doesn’t come without work or pain. Most people want instant gratification, a quick fix with little work involved. Anything worth having involves work. If we want the blessings and peace God has for us we must submit to him and ask for brokenness and a revival in our soul. We must be willing to submit before our master.
A prayer for brokenness, “Lord, show me what is in my heart I need to change. Help me understand these things so I can experience what you have for me and experience a revival in my life. What selfish, prideful, and dark places exist in my heart? Bring these things to surface and help me to overcome all of these. I pray all these things in Jesus name, Amen.”
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, a broken and contrite heart, these, O God, you will not despise. Psalm 51:17
Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance. For out of it will flow the springs of life. -Proverbs 4:23
Forgive yourself and your past debts [or others you have hurt]. Let God repay those you have hurt. We cannot repay others we have hurt. Resist the devil, repent, seek God’s forgiveness, forgive others and yourself. Peter asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother [others] when he sins against me? Up to seven times?” Jesus answered,”I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.”
In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything, and two minus one equals nothing. -Mignon McLaughlin
Have you been hurt? Or have you hurt someone you love? Are you the antagonist or the protagonist?
Does this complete your insecurities to make one feel small? What have you gained?
Once a heart is hardened can it be made whole again? Have you afflicted a woman’s heart so she has been make vulnerable to you? Have you chosen your words carefully or effortlessly? Were the words that gave self-gratification worth the pain inflicted on both you and her?
To what length will you go to earn her trust again? If you have hurt a loved one seek Gods council, repentance, and ask for His help to stop hurting the one you love. Ask him to heal her heart and make changes so you don’t lose the one you love. Don’t let Satan have a foothold and create lasting strongholds in your relationship.
