"Come, let us return to the Lord. He has torn us to pieces but he will heal us; he has injured us but he will bind our wounds." Hosea 6:1
I will never ever forget that last verse to the song Holiness. You might know the one..."Holiness, Holiness is what I long for. Holiness is what I need..." And I am usually in tears by the time I get to the last verse "Brokenness, Brokenness is what I long for. Brokenness is what I need. Brokenness is what you want from me." Every time I hear that I think of the story I heard as a kid about broken glass. At first glance, it may just look like a piece of broken glass. But when the sun hits that glass we see beautiful light reflected that we would never have seen if the glass had not been broken.
