March 3: Sweet Brokenness

Read Isaiah 42:1-9

The path Jesus took through brokenness on the cross and into the tomb leads to joy and life beyond our greatest imaginings. Still, it requires complete surrender, painful breaking of what we think we want in order to get what God knows we need — real and true life that reigns victorious over death. The empty tomb.

Sweetly Broken, a song by Jeremy Riddle
To the cross, I look, and to the cross, I cling
 Of it's suffering, I do drink, of its work, I do sing
 On it, my Savior, both bruised and crushed
 Showed that God is love and God is just


At the cross, You beckon me
 You draw me gently to my knees
 And I am lost for words, so lost in love
 I'm sweetly broken, wholly surrendered

Yeah, yeah, oh Lord


What a priceless gift, undeserved life
 Have I been given through Christ crucified
 You've called me out of death
 You've called me into life
 And I was under Your wrath
 Now, through the cross, I'm reconciled


Ooh, and at the cross, You beckon me
 You draw me gently to my knees
 And I am lost for words, so lost in love
 I'm sweetly broken, wholly surrendered

At the cross, You beckon me
 You draw me gently to my knees
 And I am lost for words, so lost in love
 I'm sweetly broken, wholly surrendered


And in awe of the cross, I must confess
 How wondrous Your redeeming love
 And how great is Your faithfulness

 
At the cross, You beckon me
 You draw me gently to my knees
 And I am lost for words, so lost in love
 I'm sweetly broken, wholly surrendered


At the cross, You, You've beckoned me
 You draw me gently to my knees
 And I am lost for words, so lost in love
 I'm sweetly broken, wholly surrendered


Yeah, yeah, I'm broken for you
 I'm broken for you, my Lord, yeah
 Jesus, Your love is there
 I am sweetly broken
