Broken Together

Is your marriage struggling? If so, one of the most poignant songs on Casting Crowns' album, Thrive, is the compelling ballad "Broken Together" and it offers encouragement for you. "Marriage is tough," frontman Mark Hall says. "We bring a lot of fairytales to the picture when it comes to marriage. We bring them to the altar with us [thinking]: 'This is going to be perfect. We don't have to be apart. We can just wake up together every morning and no one is going to have morning breath. We're not going to have any problems.' And then the problems hit and you don't know where to file those into your picture.... The idea I'm trying to say is: 'Can you lay down who you thought I was and love the me that is? Can we take this from where we are now and realize that I can't be that person?' Only God is going to be able to make this work and broken people can be broken together. To me, it's probably the most important song on the record."
