"I have been broken. Wonderfully broken."

This is the basis for this newspaper/magazine. The celebration of being broken by God. It is my hope that this paper will bring hope, change, and joy to peoples lives.

Every issue will feature original poems, writings, and testimonies. While this issue will only have poems, future issues will feature testimonies from Christians who have gotten over personaly demons, issues, and all the bumps in the road of life.

If you would like to have your original writing used in this paper, please feel free to PM me your poems or writings.

Glory to God. He is so good to us. May He bless you and bring change to your life.







Wonderfully Broken
By AIOP


I have been wonderfully broken.
I am bare, exposed, and guilty.
And yet..........

I am joyful, forgiven, and stronger.
I keep messing up and hiding from you.
You keep finding me.
You keep forgiving me.
I still wonder why.
I still wonder how.

When I draw near, you love me.
When I push you away, you love me.
And I still wonder why.

I deserve nothing.
You give me eternity with you.
And yet............

I break yourheart, ignore you, and forsake you.
I keep coming back and asking forgiveness.
And each and every time................
You wash away my sin.
And you love me.
I will always wonder why.

So all I can do is praise.
And when I become numb to my sins,
Please break me. Wonderfully.

I am wonderfully broken.
And may my scars never heal.
So I may remember what I came from.
From being broken.




Delightful
By AIOP


How sweet and delightful
How loving and kind
Everyday with you you is more than the last

Like a lovers passionate kiss
Bette than any sinful list
Lord, my God, You are.

I love you so very deeply
My words cannot even begin

You are more than I deserve
And every day I delight in You

My joy is greater than I can imagine
My love for you is immeasurable
Yet you love me ten fold.
It blows my mind
Confuses my senses

But I will go on delighting
For You dear God are delightful.




Hurting
By AIOP


I am hurting
I am in pain
The walls close in tightly
I am suffocating
I am dying

But...............

But I see a light.
It is dim and small
I drink up the sunlight

And then the walls go away
I can breath again
I still hurt but You are here.

The hurt begins to fade
The pain goes away
And I climb into Your arms of love
That is when I begin to praise You
As You hold me and smile at me

Dear God, how sweet and kind You are.
For You make me stop hurting.




Stare
By AIOP


Sitting and staring
Watching and waiting
Since you saved me this is all I want to do.

I want to stare at You forever
Watching Your love and grace

Show me Your heart
Show me Your face
I need to know everything
Be in wonder You

And I will stare at You
For I am loved
I am forgiven
And all I can do is stare
Stare at You.




No
By AIOP


No Jesus
No Jesus
I choose to reject You

Why should I live for You?

I live in sin and shame
I have no perpose or soul
Why should I give this up?

I kill myself every day
And everyday you ask me
Are you ready?
Are you ready?

No Jesus.
No Jesus.
I will not accept You.

Why?
All I want to know is why.
Why do You care?

I am nothing.
I am worth less than the ground I walk on.
And You want to love me?

No Jesus, I will not go back.
Yes Jesus, I will accept You.
Yes Jesus.
Yes.

Wow! Thank you so much for being willing to share that with us, AIOP! It's exciting that you're creatively expressing your relationship with God! \:D/

I look forward to seeing what the future may hold for this newspaper/magazine! :D

The writings in this magazine and the thoughts and emotions behind them are beautiful. I hope this continues.

Zach, I'd like to try putting music to your first piece, Wonderfully Broken. The words are so passionate, they're just begging to be put to a melody. I'll let you know if anything comes of it. :)

I definitely second that, David O! That is one of the best poems I've read in a while. It's so awesome that you are experiencing such a life change, Zach!

Thank you guys so much. I cannot tell you all how encouraging and comforting this is. I plan to write some more soon.

And this paper has given way to an idea that is bigger than any idea I have ever even tried to do on the ToO, or any place else.

I don't want to say right away, but this is huge. I am praying about it, and seeing if it is my place to start what I'm wanting to do. I'm talking to alot of computer savy people, and exploring my options. But I know that this idea could really go far and help ALOT of people.

And David (and anyone else who wants to try), anyone is more than welcome to set music to this. It would be me more joy than I can imagine if any of these writings are made into songs.

Wow, Zach. That was touching :sniff:. I love this inspirational magazine. And I've already composed a melody for Wonderfully Broken. I wish you could hear it.

Absolutely!

Ayone who sets that, or any of those poems to music needs to post them, or send them to me!

I would love to hear your music, CB.
