Nothing Is Too Broken




Psalm 34:18
The LORD is near to those who have a broken heart, and saves such as have a contrite spirit.


Can you imagine if my crystal vase fell off this shelf onto the hardwood floor below? It would crash and break into innumerable pieces unable to be put back together.
         
What do you do when your world is crumbling in a thousand tiny pieces and you see it slipping through your hands? You are grasping to hold on, keep it from falling apart, but all you hold in your hands is shattered, broken pieces.

Nothing is too broken for God. He wants to put it back together and put it back stronger than before, better than before, and often in a new direction. His process of restoration and rebuilding will bring change. You won’t be the same person after having gone through this. You will be a new, improved you!

He will not put you back together only to have you pick up where you left off before this trial happened. You are not the person you were going into this experience. You have learned many things and you have grown and are still growing. God will use this growth so you can now help others. What a privilege it is to be able to help someone go through a similar storm to one God has just brought us through.

You can trust your heavenly Father to rebuild what the enemy has torn down, if you will lay all the pieces of your life into His hands and call on Him to rebuild what is broken. He will make all things beautiful in His perfect way and in His perfect time. Your heavenly Father wants you to trust Him as you have never trusted before.
