“Behold, I am making all things new.” Rev. 21:5
This morning, I woke up to the sound of one of my favorite dishes shattering into broken pieces. This dish was a priced possession, not because it was expensive, but, because of its sheer beauty. The intricate Turkish design and the beautiful blend of colors made it very appealing. I was hoping to use it for a special occasion. Unfortunately, restoring this beautifully crafted piece of art was a fait accompli. Sadly, I had to deal with the reality of having to discard it.
As I stared at the irreversible cracks and the missing shards, the holy spirit reminded me of my once broken estate. As beautifully and wonderfully as our creator wove us, sin caused us to come crashing down. The reality is that we live in a broken world. Broken heart, broken spirit, broken home, a broken mind, broken body is holding us back from experiencing the fullness of joy intertwined within our being by our creator.
The good news is that our heavenly father does not give up on our broken estate. He patiently accepts us just as we are and helps restore us to His perfect image. All He wants from us is to acknowledge our brokenness before restoring us to perfection. His grace and love binds together every broken piece and makes us more beautiful and unbreakable.
Praise God that our Lord Jesus Christ in all His humility was obedient to His father and bore our brokenness so that we could become restored unto eternity.
We read in 2 Corinthians 12:9 KJV: My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.
Let’s ask the Lord to shower us with His grace so that we who were once broken may live a life worthy of our complete restoration. Amen.
