Brokenness Made Whole/I Am More

This is a poem I wrote with some edits. The original was written July 21, 2011. The edits are noted. I act strong when I am weak, Brave when I'm afraid Sometimes I'm afraid to even speak. Added July 24, 2011. I smile when I'm broken I try to hide what's underneath. Sometimes I just do React out of emotion and fear. Give into the distractions and lies. I give in so easily You tell me: Let your tears hit the ground Bring Me your heavy burdens. Still I'm afraid, You won't love me anymore. Just a fatherless girl Tryin' to get through, The pain that tries to keep me from You. You've made me new, Still I can't believe, After all I've done.. I still belong to You.. Unloved, I am unworthy. Ashamed, I am afraid to let these tears fall. Broken, I am shattered. If I come to You with arms open wide, Can You heal me? Make me whole? You whisper sweetly: Let your tears hit the ground Bring Me your heavy burdens. And You give me a new name. Beloved, My princess, I can wipe your tears And remove your fears. Come to Me, Look Me in the eye, Break off the lies. Child you're accepted, I will never let you go My love is everlasting. My identity, sealed in Christ, The lies I believe, That's not who I am. In his arms, Brokenness made whole I AM MORE. "I am more than the choices that you've made, I am more than the sum of your past mistakes, I am more than the problems you create, I've been remade.
