Brokenness Aside by All Sons & Daughters is Feeding My Soul These Days

A friend of mine posted this on her facebook page a few weeks ago and I find myself returning to it constantly.

I’m a big believer in the Enneagram system for understanding personality and the ego. I’m an Enneagram three, which means that my biggest fear is of being or seeming worthless. When I hit an obstacle, when I make a mistake, when I feel stressed, when I get exhausted, when I am attacked fairly or unfairly, when I am in pain of any kind the first thing I feel is worthless. That means that I fight feelings of worthlessness every single day of my life. It’s constant for me. Nearly all of my negative self talk focuses in on my own shortcomings, my own brokenness.

I think that’s why this song speaks to me. First off, these guys have some game as songwriters. Plus it’s a well produced and recorded piece of music. But on a deeper level, this song speaks to my deepest insecurities. I’m really thankful for artists like David Leonard and Leslie Jordan who took the time to pour their heart into writing songs that serve the church and recording them so artfully, so beautifully.

So enjoy the music today & remember that you are not worthless!

Brokenness Aside – Lyrics

Will your grace run out If I let you down
‘Cause all I know Is how to run

‘Cause I am a sinner. If it’s not one thing it’s another
Caught up in words, Tangled in lies
But You are a Savior, And You take brokenness aside
And make it beautiful, Beautiful

Will You call me child; When I tell you lies
‘Cause all I know is how to cry
