Casting Crowns – Broken Together lyrics

What do you think about when you look at me
I know were not the fairytale you dreamed wed 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

Its 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 well 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

    It's about admitting that even as Christians we sometimes have troubles and we must realize them in order for God to move us forward, for God to mend things. We are not perfect and by admitting that among other Christians we open a whole other door so that body of Christ can be made whole. From my shattered pass to your secrets. Broken together we come, from all walks of life, to be one thing and that is a vessel for God.

    It's exactly fits me and the man I fell in love with. We both have our past and our now. And we throw accusations at each other but we know what we want, just don't know how to get there. And it is about shattered pasts and instead of hurting each other, let's just be broken together. Let's just accept each other for who we are.

    I see it as: let's figure out how to continue living as a married couple, since God doesn't like divorce, while God helps us realign ourselves to return to the path of how our hearts were when we were first married. Accept that we may not see eye to eye but with God we can be broken yet meant for each other.

    For me this message was very clear. God intended for us to be together. To be whole - Those pasts cannot be changed but the future can and will with God. We were "broken" as soon as Adam and Eve tasted that forbidden fruit. So the Lord knows we are broken. But to last forever - Eternal life we must learn to be brown together and with Gods love Eternal.
