Broken Father-son relationship, broken marriage, broken friendship…
Life’s only once.
You might be ready to stand against all odds to pursue your dream. But when you lost your own family due to the pressures and circumstances that were beyond your control, how would you reconcile with the nagging pain of your heart?
Sometimes, that’s really no concrete answer to issues of your life story.
A clue to rebuild the broken bridges in the award-winning Malaysian musical, “Broken Bridges,” might be Ming’s potential response to a fatherly call offered to him by Wong, his dad… But that’s provided that the blessing of his dad for him had ever come to his knowledge:
“I have not the chance to say this… You are home at last
Yet you never stay beside me… Please forgive the past
If there’s way for me to show I care… Would I wait until this evening
Just to tell you that I’m there?
Perhaps I’ve angered heaven and hell… But do not smite him
Let him be well… For he’s my son
Will I ever get to know you?… It’s too late to start
Though we’re family… We seem like two whole worlds apart
You hold a place that’s… Special in my heart
But it doesn’t matter to me… If you never knew this part
You’re my son and always will be… You have my blessing to go free” **
My face’s wet with tears as Colin Kirton delivers the father’s cry with passionate singing.
Right there at the theater, I was pondering upon the brokenness of my own life. My heart couldn’t help but to look up to the Heavenly Father, who knows it all, who’s never made a mistake, but has freely offered a “home” for my heart.
At the shadow of the cross of Christ, I am His. He’s dealing with my broken life.
He knows it all. He has me covered.
