Reminders in the Brokenness

c @ robin aylor July 27, 2018

The foulness of one sin

Horrid, nasty, vile

Likely I might treat sin lightly

If not for the trials

Futile, vain, all I know

Pointless in the curse

And yet it’s in that brokenness

Throughout the Universe
Broken Adam, broken Eve

Shame disclosed beneath the leaves

Broken Noah, Abraham

Isaac, Jacob, all of man

Saul, David, defective kings,

Creation laden, broken things
In suffering and stabbing pain

Reminders of my fall

To every sin that's ever been

Now none are counted small
But with the curse a ray of light

Nothing that was mine

His glory shared my great delight

Hope for all mankind
