You don’t give Your heart in pieces

There are songs that we simply like to sing because of pretty or relatable words, others that are so catchy they get stuck in our heads for days on end, and then there are songs that change who we are and redefine the world as we know it. “Pieces” by Steffany Gretzinger and Amanda Cook of Bethel Church is very much the latter.

And we are changed, not because of the melody or clever lyrics, but because we’ve been apprehended by His unmatchable Love.

This song reminds us, there’s no doubt… He never withholds a single thing from us because He only knows how to love with all of His heart, soul, mind and strength. He wants to heal His broken and tattered Bride and make each of us — the objects of His deepest affections — whole again.

I see His hands gathering pieces of hearts
And putting them back together

He knows what breaks our hearts
Where to find all the pieces
He knows what broke your heart
He knows just where to find all the pieces

When we are aware of our brokenness we are right where we need to be.

It is then that we live desperately aware of our need for Christ.

This is a really hard way to live in America. Most of us don’t wonder where our next meal will come from, if the water from our faucets will make us sick or if the roof will stay on our home during the next rainstorm. We are more concerned with if our Starbucks is hot enough, our cars (multiple) are clean enough and if we should use buy regular or organic milk at the grocery store. But when we can get our eyes fixed on heavenly things, divine appointments and God’s purpose/plan for our lives, it shines a light on the things that keep us stuck here on earth. It is then that we can see that He’s putting our broken pieces back together again.

He redeems all things for His good. So, get ready… He’s coming for all of us! No more pieces.

“Pieces” by Steffany Gretzinger
Bethel Music

Unreserved, unrestrained
Your love is wild
Your love is wild for me
It isn’t shy, it’s unashamed
Your love is proud
To be seen with me
To be seen with me

You don’t give Your heart in pieces
You don’t hide Yourself to tease us

Uncontrolled, uncontained
Your love is a fire
Burning bright for me
It’s not a spark
It’s not just a flame
Your love is a light
And all the world will see
All the world will see

You don’t give Your heart in pieces
You don’t hide Yourself to tease us

You don’t give Your heart in pieces
You don’t hide Yourself to tease us

Your love’s not fractured
It’s not a troubled mind
It isn’t anxious
It’s not the restless kind
Your love’s not passive
It’s never disengaged
It’s always present
It hangs on every word we say
Love keeps its promises
It keep its word
It honors what’s sacred
‘Cause its vows are good
Your love’s not broken
It’s not insecure
Your love’s not selfish
Your love is pure

You don’t give Your heart in pieces
You don’t hide Yourself to tease us

You don’t give Your heart in pieces
You don’t hide Yourself to tease us

You don’t give Your heart in pieces
You don’t hide Yourself to tease us
