Looking for a way to cope, tears flowed as I banged my fists against the wall. The devil had again attacked my family and left pieces of my heart scattered on the ground.
You too have been wounded. Satan tries to destroy, leaving behind scars and nightmarish memories. I’m so sorry for what you have been through. I’m so sorry for the pain you have experienced. The pain that ripped open your heart.
And now, the devil lies to you that your broken places will bleed brokenness, that you won’t heal and your life will never be the same. The devil lies that because of what happened, you have no hope of your dream coming to fruition, and because of what happened, you can’t be the person you wanted to be. The devil is a liar!
May I share hope with you?
Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum. What was broken is repaired with precious metal. What was broken becomes a work of art. What was shattered now glows with beauty.
Are you broken? When we take our broken pieces, our shattered hearts and lives to God, His restoration glows through with His healing. Nothing is too hard for God, no life is too shattered for God, nothing is impossible for God.
God’s mending, restoration, and renewal, weaves a golden bond as the goodness of God, the tender mercies of God, heals the brokenhearted and binds wounds.
Are you broken? Become a shining one, a glowing one, by allowing God to heal your wounds and scars. Let God take what the enemy meant for evil and turn it to good. Allow God’s healing, light-filled restoration to shine in you and through you. For through the broken, God’s light shines.
“Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.” God “heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds [healing their pain and comforting their sorrow]. For, “we know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose.” ~ Isaiah 60:1 (NASB), Psalm 147:3 (AMP), Romans 8:28 (NET Bible)
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me [the Anointed One, the Messiah] to preach the good news (the Gospel) to the poor; He has sent Me to announce release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to send forth as delivered those who are oppressed [who are downtrodden, bruised, crushed, and broken down by calamity].” ~ Luke 4:18 (AMPC)
