If grace was a kingdom
I stopped at the gate
Thinking I don’t deserve to pass through after all the mistakes I’ve made
Oh but I heard a whisper
As Heaven bent down
Said, “Child, don’t you know that the first will be last and the last get a crown”

Now I’m just a beggar in the presence of a King
I wish I could bring so much more
But if it’s true You use broken things
Then here I am Lord, I am all Yours

The pages of history they tell me it’s true
That it’s never the perfect; it’s always the ones with the scars that You use
It’s the rebels and the prodigals; it’s the humble and the weak
All the misfit heroes You chose
Tell me there’s hope for sinners like me

Grace is a kingdom
With gates open wide
There’s a seat at the table just waiting for you
So, come on inside

imagine you have 2 ceramic pots. one is cracked and is missing pieces. the other is perfect. now you put a candle into both of them and put a lid on. which pot do you see more light coming through? the broken one. thats what God does. you have to be broken to let God's light shine through <3

I was on heroin for years. I was homeless, jobless, and penniless. My family gave up on me because I hurt them so much. I lost custody of my daughter. I remember being back in the woods where I lived, thinking I was going to die in my addiction. I was in bondage! I was dependent on drugs at all levels and it felt impossible to get out. I had overdosed 13 separate times. I was an atheist. On October 18, 2013 I finally surrendered. I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. I eventually gave my life to Jesus! Now I am in college, I'm a drug counselor, and a preacher. God is restoring the relationships in my family everyday! There is hope! God can move ANYONE to change. The biggest miracles aren't when He moves mountains but when He moves hearts. God you still use broken things and I'm all yours! Glory to The Almighty! Almost 4 years clean from drugs and alcohol!

Wow--did I ever need this song today!! I have been really ill for months and unable to go to church--I consider myself a mature Christian--and there is nothing more that satan loves than to pull one of us down--I have lived with Lupus-having organ damage for 36 years. Disabled at 38. Raising 2 boys as their father considered me socially unacceptable. I thank God for my parents who always helped in times that should have taken my life but the Lord intervened. But right now am facing very hard health problems. I will praise Him regardless.

I need prayer and for my wife, we are separated, because she cheated on me. I know God can save this marriage if it is his will.

I’m a teenager, I just lost my dad 12-8-17. When I found out I screamed at God. I was mad at him for the longest time. Then I listen to this song I heard it at church camp by a kid who serviced a very serious car crash. I now know when God says it’s your turn to come see me, we should get mad we should rejoice! Yeah I miss my daddy but he’s up in heaven with no pain and a giant smile on his face and he’s meeting mine and his lord and savior!

This is my new favorite Matthew West song. I spent 24 long years in prison in 3 different states and songs like this on the radio is one of the reasons I kept up hope.

God loves broken people. I had to be broken before i could walk the path that GOD has paved for me. Growing up without a father figure in my life, running the streets, dealing drugs and feeling so empty. Almost everyone in the gang i ran was in prison or the grave by the time i was in my 20's. But i had a grandmother who prayed for me everyday and by GOD'S GRACE AND MERCY i lived to reach teens and young adults that there is always hope. God allowed me to walk through some dark places in my life so i can relate to people who are in that place now. I still walk through valleys sometime, but i know GOD'S SPIRIT is with me. Never give up hope. Pray and praise the Lord through it all. He will never forsake you or leave you. Amen...

It's crazy that this keeps happening. I feel so blessed.
Recently, I've been struggling with social anxiety and self esteem. I got to the point where I thought, 'I keep messing up, he'll never be able to use me.' Then God reminded me of several Bible stories and stories from my experience in which He has used the sinners, the weak, the least of these. I felt so much better. Then this song came up!
This has happened before... Months ago, when I was much more new to following Christ, I was going through some of the hardest times I ever had. Despite that, I had more joy, peace, and hope than ever before. That was because I stopped asking God to take me out of the dark place I was in, and I prayed for him to give me what I needed to get through it. I'm not sure where it is found, but please read the story of David. The part which I was referring to was when, at a young age, David was appointed to be king. He didn't feel qualified. instead of asking God to find someone else, he asked God for wisdom and all that he needed to do the job well. Anyway, right after I made that realization, the song "Different" came up. In the most recent version, the the artist talks for a minute before the song.. saying EXACTLY what I just said!
I am totally in awe...
God bless you, and remember to be thankful when He does!
