Wow, broken. What a word to ponder.
So many things come to mind. My mother had a quote on her refrigerator that read “Without hope life is a broken winged bird that cannot fly”. My dad always said “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it”. And there seems to be more than a few couples who decided 2020 was the year they became broken up with their spouses.
Broken nearly always has a negative connotation to it. And yet…
Oh beloved, the Lord speaks to my heart this morning and hopefully yours too. Whatever area of your life seems broken, God is your Restorer. He delights in taken the broken things of life and make them new again. He rejoices in taken a broken believer and give them new hope, new life, new outlook and new strength.
As you ponder the broken places in your life always remember that God loves you and He’s for you. In spite of the pain of being broken, you can have joy in the putting back together again God is doing for you right now. He doesn’t use ordinary glue. His reparation is pure gold! That’s because you are pure gold to Him. He won’t leave you nor will He forsake you. Trust Him today to take Broken and make it Beautiful!
Jeremiah 17:14 Heal me, LORD, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise.

Psalm 23:3 He restores my soul…
