O heart where art thy shattered pieces now?
Hast thou gathered the shards and splinters from
whence they fell and
were buried deep within.
Hast thou begun to try and mend thyself once more?
Can you put the pieces back together?
Answer me O you broken pitiful thing!
Answer me and hide not the truth from me!
I know you.
I have seen thy tears
in the dead of night
and before the sun
doth shed its light.
I have heard thy silent sobs echoing within
thy hollow bony cage.
And watched as thy sadness birthed
more sorrow and pain.
I have felt thy pain
that sense that no one understood you...
or truly... really...cared.
I know you,
though often I tried to deny you
and hide you from the world...
Now I have come.
Come to face you one on one.
Let us reason together
and speak plainly.
You are broken O heart
and hurt deeply.
It is time
it is time to end the silent pain you
have endured, and find healing
and peace and joy.
But, we both know you cannot do this yourself.
Nor can i change and mend thee myself.
It's been a struggle I know,
trusting and having faith.
Doubt had blinded the both of us.
we step out in this thing called faith.
It's our only true hope.
Only God can put these pieces back together.
We can't do it on our own
A broken and contrite heart He will not despise.
Let the world say what they will!
They know not the pain you've felt.
They don't understand the deep seethed hurt
you have buried in your innermost parts
all these years.
You trusted no one.
You held thy 'friends' at a distance.
You made them see what you wanted them
They saw the good in you...
(which you yourself did not know how to appreciate)
A true look at thy pain was practically non-existent,
a mere glance rare.
They knew not thy true pain.
You did not even completely trust God
far less mortal man.
You felt alone
forsaken by God and man.
But now it is time for change
You don't have to live like that anymore.
I cannot save you
but God can.
Yes there are times you may doubt.
But remember God understands it all.
He is not surprised by anything in thy life.
He knew what He was getting when He called you.
He's a friend that sticks closer than a brother.
He's a Father to the fatherless.
He will defend you.
He will protect you.
He will guide you and help you
through all the trials you will face.
He will never leave you alone,
but will be with you forever
and comfort you.
Rest in His arms o heart.
Let His love heal thee.
Let it sink into thy innermost parts
and bring comfort and peace to thy weary soul.
You need not be afraid anymore.
You need not hide behind facades.
God is here.
And in Him is all you need.
Behold all things become new.
(thy former sadness and pain)
are passed away.
Rejoice O heart!
Thy Redeemer is Mighty!
There is hope for you
Love and joy is yours.
He shall make thee whole and complete.
In His presence is the fullness of joy.
He shall wipe away your tears.
Greater is He that is in you, than
he that is in the world.
You shall overcome all things O heart.
You are more than a conqueror.
O my heart.
A new chapter in our lives has just begun.
A bright, blessed eternal future awaits
and the sorrows of this world cannot compare,
with the joy that is to come...
