So I was at a birthday party the other day for three different people, happy birthday Sara, Linda, and sissy!
As the party was dying down and coming to an end one of our extended family was leaving. In her hand she had this tray, and it was cracked. Someone said “hey your try is kind of cracked.” to which she replied “Yeah even though its broken I have a hard time throwing things away because I can still use it.”
That’s when holy spirit hit me like a ton of bricks
Just like that tray , we are broken. We are broken by many tangible things, but the best part about that is, what the enemy was trying to use to keep you down, GOD will use to build you up. Just as important though, is he will use those situations to build others up, and lead them either to him, or back to him!
By doing this, where we once saw cracks and broken pieces we are able to, if we take a step back for a moment, see the glory of his grand design.
He will restore us, piece by piece. In that process we will have more wisdom, and understanding, if we come to him with a teachable spirit and mind.
If we fight the process (I know I have from time to time, just see my earlier post about taste the rainbow) it still gets done it just takes far longer to achieve the lesson.
Maybe you who are reading this feel broken and beaten down, maybe you don’t, maybe you know someone who does, my prayer to you Is that you allow holy spirit to guide you through the storm, that he creates withing you a teachable spirit and that your process goes smoothly as he guides you through this storm, that you stand on the word of truth and drink from the well the water of life so that you may thirst no more.
3 He heals the brokenhearted
And binds up their wounds.
14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;[a]
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
