Beauty in the Breakdown

"So let go, let go, jump in,what you waiting for?It's alright,
'cause there's beauty in the breakdown.
let go, let go, just get in
Oh, it's so amazing here.
It's alright,'cause there's beauty in the breakdown."
- Frou Frou (Imogen Heap), Let Go
For the Christian there's beauty in the breakdown.
 How else do I grow? 
 To break down is to move forward. 
In my brokenness to find His strength - there is no greater privilege. 
 'Let me learn by paradox that the way down is the way up, 
that to be low is to be high, 
that the broken heart is the healed heart, 
that the contrite spirit is the rejoicing spirit, 
that the repenting soul is the victorious soul, 
that to have nothing is to possess all, 
that to bear the cross is to wear the crown, 
that to give is to receive, 
that the valley is the place of vision.'
- Valley of Vision  
 Beauty in the breakdown.
