“Mighty are the works of your hand God, I thank you that even in the brokenness, I can still become whole again. How great are you O’God that you can take a nothing like me and use me for your services.”
I found that when one is broken, often times they are not able to be fixed. When it comes to families it would almost seem impossible for even a temporary fix, because we just give up altogether and live our lives. But here is a truth I want you to know about; just because you have been broken doesn’t mean that you have been thrown away, you can become whole again. Just because you have been broken doesn’t mean that you are unusable. Just because you are broken doesn’t mean you need to be placed in a corner with no hope of coming out, nor can you be made whole again.
Just because you are broken doesn’t mean you have been forgotten about. See brokenness has the power unlike anything I know, but what I have learned is that in your brokenness, strength can still be had, even in brokenness you can find your own inspiration, because it’s in those moments your hurt is so deep and you began to wonder; “what is this?” And something began to happen where you notice you were made for something more. There in that hurt, in that brokenness you began to search for your purpose and you find yourself beginning the process of becoming whole again.
Someone maybe asking how can you find purpose in your brokenness, or in the hurt? “They talked about me, they laughed at me, they lied on me, and you are telling me I can find purpose in all of that?” Yes I am. With the scars of your life, God will allow you to heal. Those healed wounds, God will get the Glory from. You may feel like the brokenness has rendered you useless in life. You may feel beyond repair this time. You may feel tossed aside. Forgotten, Shamed. Rejected, As you sit there and sit in your pity party. The scars of life, the healed wounds, the deep lines, they all have stories to tell and you are to be the one. In fact you are the only one that can tell, because nobody can tell it better than you. Yet often we try to hide our brokenness. Preferring to look good to and for the world. Instead of presenting to the world who you truly are, you don’t want to risk the difficulties of it all. If you front somehow it becomes alright. Well I come by to tell you, stop the fronting. Deal with the truth of the matter, reveal your vulnerability exposing it for what it was.The reason we can allow it to be exposed is because we have a healer.
One who repairs, one who can fit the broken pieces that no longer seem to fit right into a perfect design, I am a living witness of that, Just look at me, who would have thought that some seven years later, I would have gone back gotten my Masters Degree in Divinity School, of Bible Education. Who would have thought I would have been doing all that in this time of my life at the age I am, God was working, behind the scenes on my behalf, mending and fitting me back together, creating a better me a better work of art than before, more than I could ever have dreamed possible. He makes all things brand new, He makes all things beautiful. Especially in the broken area of your life all from his grace it is real life.
Serrated and rough edges and all they have even have meaning. Listen whatever your brokenness, whether it rape, drug addiction, broken marriage, domestic violence, and low-esteem, whatever it maybe God can break through all that mess. Don’t ever be ashamed of your scars; let those scars tell your story so that you can help someone else,your scars are your stories.
God sent His son into the world for this very thing that is why Jesus story is so powerful even today, He was the very epitome bringing life to what was broken, because He Himself was broken and He was broken for us. Behold, I am making all things new (Revelation 21:5). God said that enough for me that settle it. (2 Corinthians 5:17) Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. (Isaiah 43:19). Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. (Psalm 147:3). He has made everything beautiful in its time.
Father we thank you that even in our brokenness, we can still be made whole, we thank you for sending your Son to become the very epitome of brokenness, because it was through His brokenness that we were able to be healed. Thank you for your mercy and grace, thank you for being a great God, thank you for opening eyes that we might see your Glory, thank you for your peace and restoration, because God we know that Giants do fall down, and that’s all our brokenness was it was a giant that you got the Glory from, O’God we thank your now for being brand new. The things we did not think we could accomplish we have, be we allow ourselves to be vulnerable to your people and through our vulnerability they are now able to be healed. We thank you God for it all in Jesus name Amen.
