As I sit and have my cup of coffee with Jesus, I was thinking about BROKENNESS. During the holiday season, it is a time I think about my family and those I have lost. I become very aware of my own BROKENNESS AND LOSS.
I think one of the things that connects us as human beings is our own BROKENNESS. Our brokenness tells us something about ourselves.
Your brokenness tells me something about you, and mine about me.
I don’t know if one person’s suffering is greater than another. SUFFERING is such a personal thing, but when we connect our brokenness, something very real happens.
The greatest brokenness is our separation in relationships. We need to embrace our brokenness, to name it, and then, the most painful part, see it as a gift. The last couple of years, I feel like the vase that has been shattered into a million pieces.
When I search for the silver lining, I see how many other broken people have come to me. We share stories and tears, and that is not easy. I could write books on BROKENNESS. At times, I feel lonely, disconnected, scared, and very vulnerable, and that is when God brings amazing people who share their BROKENNESS. This Advent season, I light my candle for all those who know what it means to be BROKEN but to have faith. This is why Jesus came into the world.
Today I lift up all those who feel BROKEN. You are not alone. And WE are the reason that JESUS came! Have a blessed day as Jesus sends HIS healing!
I can’t wait to see what Jesus will make out of all the broken pieces I call me.
