It’s Time for an Unmaking

God wants us to be humble. He desires for us to desire Him more than anything we want, anything we think we are, anything we create on our own. “He must increase, but I must decrease.” (John 3:30)

Nichole Nordeman’s song says it well.

Consider it.

Choose it.

Break it down instead of building with your own strength and wisdom.

Only God truly knows.

This is the unmaking
The beauty in the breaking
Had to lose myself
To find out who You are
Before each beginning
There must be an ending
Sitting in the rubble
I can see the stars
This is the unmaking

The longer and the tighter that we hold
Only makes it harder to let go
But love will not stay locked inside
A steeple or a tower high
Only when we’re broken, are we whole

What happens now
When all I’ve made is torn down
