This song just hammered me. I mean, it is crushing me. Almost in tears I am.
There are a lot of songs written for a husband and a wife, but this one is one of the most powerful songs I have heard in a while. Casting Crowns, Broken Together, from their 2014 release, Thrive, is a song that has pierced my selfish and prideful heart and left it in complete ruins.
No marriage is perfect. We have our ups and down. These first 2 weeks of the new year have been up. But this third week of January has become a down. I was sitting at my desk this morning, when Broken Together was played on the radio. Immediately, God touched my heart, and I saw just how horrible I had been.
Today, I want to encourage every husband and every wife to watch the video and listen to the lyrics. (And I mean, really listen!) What you have with your spouse, the promises you made, and the hope for a better tomorrow all rest in God’s perfect love.
Fight for your marriage. Be broken before each other and the God who heals the brokenness.
To my amazing bride, I’m sorry.
