Dedicated to you who have been weighed down by your past circumstances and mistakes.

Thank God for His unconditional, healing love.

He is in love with you! ~Gigi

The Bruised Reed

(CHORUS) How can You use a reed that's been bruised... trampled on by the footsteps of life?

"Trust Me child, and see it brought a sweet-smelling fragrance... that only you could bring unto Me."

(VERSE) There was a rose, blooming on rocky ground; the odds against survival were slim.

Stepped on by temptation, desires, and snares; never fully trusting in Him.

But now you know, each bruising brought a purpose, to spread the seeds that are growing across the land;

What was meant for evil, I made it good. Because I've always held you in My hand.

(LAST LINE) You have found favor with Me.

Isa. 42:3 A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out.

In faithfulness he will bring forth justice.

(Luke 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me...

to set at liberty them that are bruised...
