I keep thinking about the box of crayons I was recently given. They are used and broken and passed down because the individual who gave them to me knows I could use them for something crafty. It won’t be long until I find a way to repurpose them. I think of the broken crayons now in my hands and my heart is suddenly filled with peace that I am like a broken crayon in the hands of God.
If I’m being truthful, my spirit is broken. My heart feels like it is drowning. I hurt in ways I never knew I could. My body aches physically from the emotional trauma this past year has brought our family. Life can be so cruel. It’s always changing. However, God is always the same. He never changes. He always has a plan. He always loves us. His grace and compassion has been so alive through this season and He is always enough. I’m reminded that no matter how much pain I experience this side of heaven, it will have no weight compared to the weight of Gods love for me.
I aim to be real with y’all. I don’t ever want my readers to think I’ve got it all together. I don’t want you to think for a second that every season I walk through is sunny. I don’t want you to feel alone in your own pain. I’m walking through a painful season currently and while I choose not to share the details at the moment I know I’m not alone in my pain either.
As we sit in His presence broken, our faith cannot fail. Our faith must remain steady and our eyes and hearts looking to Him. He is working on His way to repurpose the broken pieces of our hearts. We only need to trust them in His hands.
“The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Psalms 34:18
