Beautifully Broken--This is Me

Updated on April 5, 2012

Many a times we find ourselves broken, scared, alone, hurting in ways we don't even know where to begin to start fixing things. There's times we become so broken we wonder if there really is a God out there that loves us. Sometimes in our brokenness that is where we find God the most. That's where His light shines and we can become truly beautiful. The beauty may not be of this world, but God holds the treasures of true beauty. We can be beautiful in our brokenness, there can be hope, and joy in our sorrow. Turning to God allows a new light to shine, bringing forth the beautiful people we are despite our brokenness.

I got lost some time ago,

Through all the twists and turns of this road.

I've over come so many toils and strife,

Down this road of life.

I'm coming back to the real me

The me that God created to be.


Fake smiles and holding back tears

Who would ever understand the fears?

I want to live again

Free and beautifully broken

Trying to reach the real me

The me God created to be.


The praises of man will never stand,

The webs of lies and false sacrafice

None can contest to the love of Christ

His is the only will that matters

How free it is to live the real me

The me God created to be.


Give it all at the cross

He gave everything to save the lost.

Christ is the only One who can set me free

Turning me back to the real me

The me that God created to be.


Looking back I've come so far

From where I was to where I am.

I'll do whatever it takes to turn this around

I know I've let you down.

Longing to be the real me

The me You created to be


Heading back down this road

Leading to beautiful

Head held high

No fake smiles to hide

Oh the real me

The one God created to be

Is so beautiful


How perfect I can be in Him

If I only believe.

He makes me beautiful and free

Oh He created me so beautiful
