Whatever Our Souls are Made of, His and Mine are the Same

Apologies for my bloggers’ neglect. As the title of this post suggests, there has been lots of love in my life recently- I’m engaged to my dearest love! Praise God for His sweet gifts! Ransom and I are now swiftly moving towards marriage. In honor of the excitement and joy of it all, and in preparation for being “Broken Together,” I’m sharing this powerful song with you, broken beloveds. Be encouraged by the One who heals and makes us truly last forever.

Broken Together by Casting Crowns

“What do you think about when you look at me
I know we’re not the fairytale you dreamed we’d be
You wore the veil, you walked the aisle, you took my hand
And we dove into a mystery

How I wish we could go back to simpler times
Before all our scars and all our secrets were in the light
Now on this hallowed ground, we’ve drawn the battle lines
Will we make it through the night

It’s going to take much more than promises this time
Only God can change our minds

Maybe you and I were never meant to be complete
Could we just be broken together
If you can bring your shattered dreams and I’ll bring mine
Could healing still be spoken and save us
The only way we’ll last forever is broken together

How it must have been so lonely by my side
We were building kingdoms and chasing dreams and left love behind
I’m praying God will help our broken hearts align
And we wont give up the fight”

  1. Good reminder, Ransom. Bringing our brokenness to Him (together) in marriage leads to wholeness, if not perfection, in this life!

  2. What a powerful song. I especially love this line: “The only way we’ll last forever is broken together.” So, true. Many of us want to hide our brokenness – – from God and from each other. But we need to bring them out into the light, for healing, and mending, and redemption. Thank God we worship a God who is in the business of redeeming. Love to you and Ransom as you commit to a lifetime of being broken together!

  3. Though I’d heard this song on KLUV a few times, watching this music video with you was so much more powerful, it made me weep. Thank you for sharing it again with us all. Such a well written, deeply personal and moving testament to God’s grace in the fray of life and love.
