But I’m beginning to understand the purpose behind my pieces.
I am not an accident.
God sent His Son, Jesus, on purpose….
…. to break something, on purpose.
when we come to Jesus with a repentant heart something supernatural happens…
our sin is broken into pieces.
We usually don’t like it when something breaks. We’re constantly trying to hold all of our pieces together. We try to control our lives.
We try to control our sin.
We can’t see that our sin is controlling us.
In Romans 6, Paul shares that the truth of the matter is we are “slaves” to our sin.
Jesus is not like us. He is not afraid of the mess. He is here today to break your sin and set you free! The truth is, we need Him.
“Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32 NIV
To Him, broken is good. Broken is His invitation to run in, rescue us, and begin picking up the pieces! In our brokenness, we are made whole. In our weakness, He is strong!
He doesn’t waste a piece of us.
I have to be broken, to be fixed….
Broken is good.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 NIV
