Remember the nursery rhyme:
Humpty dumpty sat on a wall. Humpty dumpty had a great fall. All the king’s horseman and all the king’s men couldn’t put humpty together again.
We all have had points in our lives where we feel broken beyond compare, shattered with little hope of being restored.
But God speaks a better word. Not only does he speak a better word but he also mends, heals, restores, and make things brand new.
Aren’t we glad that with our God one mistake doesn’t ruin our lives forever! Our God is the God that can, and does put Humpty Dumpty together every single day.
It’s sometimes the crushed pieces that make the most beautiful masterpieces.
Sometimes we try to hold ourselves together so much but our loving Papa God says its ok to let go. I will still make something beautiful out of this.
The God who made the universe out of nothing can surely do amazing things with a shattered jar, or broken heart.
He not only puts it back together but he will make it better than it was ever before. He doesn’t use the ‘cheap’ materials to put you back together. He uses the best, highest quality, most extravagant material to make you whole… it started with his son. Because of Jesus who took the pain, took the brokenness, took the loneliness, we can be whole. Even better is that he doesn’t give us the broken pieces and says, ‘figure it out’ but he walks along side and says, ‘Hey I know this is hard for you. Let’s do this together to make you better, stronger, and more whole than before’.
Each day is a chance to try and hold our jar of life together or to give it into the hands of the potter.
Isn’t it better to give our broken hearts to the one who made them? He knows how to put them back together again.
