Sometimes we forget that God's plan for us includes our brokenness.
We think we have nothing to offer when we're hurting. We think we can do nothing for Him or anyone else when we are struggling to hold on.
We think that all there is for us is pain, and emptiness and hopelessness.
We forget that God's plan for us includes our brokenness.
We forget that we have a future and a hope. We forget that the dark times are just temporary. We don't have to live there.
This is the sacrifice of praise. When we give our brokenness to Jesus.
When we say "no" to our desire to curl into a ball of bitterness, anger and self-pity and say "yes" to Jesus. When we keep trusting Him, even when, especially when it hurts.
When we give Him our brokenness and let Him put the pieces back together again in His timing and in His way.
What if our perception of broken is His perception of strength? Because in our brokenness we experience His strength.
So we give Him the broken pieces. Maybe the pieces don't fit together the way we thought they would, or even the way we think they should, but we just keep trusting Him.
Because He is the puzzle maker. He makes all things fit.
Are YOU broken today? Give it to Jesus.
