torn to pieces

Come, let us return to the Lord.  He has 
torn us to pieces but he will heal us; 
he has injured us but he will 
bind up our wounds.” (Hosea 6:1)

he has torn us to pieces
in order to heal us
to make us whole by
tearing away the false
till only the true remains

he will do or allow
whatever it takes
to accomplish this
for it is done out of love
with surgical precision

sometimes healing
takes hurting
