The Mender

Advent, Week 3, Day 4 – Jesus, The Mender

Today, rather than write, I want to share with you two videos, “Mended” by Matthew West, and the story behind the song.  I hope this ministers to you as much as it did to me. Below, as in other weeks, I’ve included the words.  I’m praying for you.

Story behind “Mended”, by Matthew West:

Mended, By Matthew West:

Lyrics to “Mended“:

When you see broken beyond repair
I see healing beyond belief
When you see too far gone
I see one step away from home

How many times can one heart break?
It was never supposed to be this way
Look in the mirror, but you find someone you never thought you’d be

Oh, but I can still recognize
The one I love in your tear stained eyes
I know you might not see him now, so lift your eyes to me

When you see broken beyond repair
I see healing beyond belief
When you see too far gone
I see one step away from home

When you see nothing but damaged goods
I see something good in the making
I’m not finished yet
When you see wounded, I see mended

You see your worst mistake
But I see the price I paid
And there’s nothing you could ever do, to lose what grace has won

So hold on, it’s not the end
No, this is where love’s work begins
I’m making all things new
And I will make a miracle of you

When you see broken beyond repair
I see healing beyond belief
When you see too far gone
I see one step away from home

When you see nothing but damaged goods
I see something good in the making
I’m not finished yet
When you see wounded, I see mended

I see my child, my beloved
The new creation you’re becoming
You see the scars from when you fell
But I see the stories they will tell

You see worthless, I see priceless
You see pain, but I see a purpose
You see unworthy, undeserving
But I see you through eyes of mercy

When you see broken beyond repair
I see healing beyond belief
You’re not too far gone
You’re one step away from home

When you see nothing but damaged goods
I see something good in the making
I’m not finished yet, no
When you see wounded, I see mended

Ooh, I see mended
Woah, oh I see mended
I’m not finished yet
When you see wounded, I see mended

When we allow Jesus to mend us, he doesn’t see us as we are, but as we will be.

With love and prayers,

Robin

    1. I love this song as well! When I listened to it, considering it for the blog post, my heart wept thinking of those going through such trials this season, and always. I pray God use it. Please pray with me. Thanks friend!
