He Repairs Our Lives

In life, we become upset and frustrated when things break. Often, we end up throwing out the object, whether it be a favorite coffee mug or a family heirloom. My wife once had an antique lamp she loved, but she had to give it up when it broke into pieces during our last move. It would have been impossible for anyone to restore the lamp to its original condition.

God, however, specializes in repairing what is broken. In fact, He cannot use us until we are broken and useless. For in our brokenness, God can make us whole and restore us to what He originally created us to be. Let us not be discouraged and lost when we feel broken. When we are all apart and in pieces, we know that the next step will be for God to repair our shattered and fragmented lives.

Hi sweet Sis,
Boy I am sure glad the Lord doesn't throw us away when we are broken in our spirits. He takes our brokenness and uses it for his glory and he restores our spirit with hope.
