“Brokenness Aside” is a Christian song penned and set to music by American worship band, All Sons & Daughters. This worship song begins with a wondering – “Will Your grace run out, if I let you down? It further goes on with a realization – “Cause I am a sinner, if it’s not one thing it’s another.”
It’s a question that can bother those who’ve had colourful pasts, who’ve had a lot of unpleasant things going on in their lives before they came to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. It’s a thought that can worry believers who are caught in persistent sins, addictions, and struggles they find hard to overcome.
Will God’s grace run out? Can our continued sinning and failures exhaust the mercies of the Father? Will God reach the “end of His rope” and turn his back on a stubborn, wayward child?
His grace is sufficient.
In 2 Corinthians 12:9 God Himself utters the promise, “My grace is sufficient for you because My strength is made perfect in weakness.” In our struggles, God comes and graces us with Himself so we can find the strength to overcome. Philippians 4:13 promises that those who remain in Christ will find the strength they need to go through all things in life: the good and the bad.
His Mercy is in fresh supply.
Lamentations 3:22-23 say that “It is because of the Lord’s mercy and loving-kindness that we are not consumed because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.” God never keeps count. There is no daily listing of our shortcomings. Each new day opens with a clean slate. Unless we allow so, there is no past that can ever keep us down.
Psalm 103:10,14 also say, “He does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities. He knows how we are formed, He remembers that we are dust.” God desires the best of us but He will never over-expect. He knows our limits and He will never allow struggles beyond our capacities.
His Love is everlasting.
Jeremiah 31:3 says, “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness. The root meaning of the word “everlasting” carries both “antiquity” and “futurity”. It encompasses the past and stretches out into the future. It means we can never be unloved. It means we are loved before we ever came to be and we are loved indefinitely, unendingly. Romans chapter 8 ends with an assuring declaration, that nothing in this life, not even death, no, nothing can ever separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Going back to the song, “Brokenness Aside”; it is a song to be loved and appreciated for one overwhelming truth that answers its own question, and that brings release to any sin-laden, failure-laden soul: “You are a Savior, and You take brokenness aside and make it beautiful.” God does. He makes it beautiful. We only need to come. He will take brokenness aside. He will make it beautiful.

Thank you. We can never be reminded too much about God’s capacity for Grace. John Newton and the hymn he wrote, “Amazing Grace” are a testament to one person’s lifelong struggle with his past.
I enjoyed this article. I found that in ministry their are people who’s wounds are deep it takes years to heal from a broken past. The perfecting of Christ takes a lifetime.
