You Make Broken Things Beautiful
I often find inspiration to write things at the most random times. Specific phrases hit home with me. Certain words in songs will touch a part of my heart that I now, in return, get to share with all of you.
Today I was driving over to my cousins house. The sun has been shining the past few days and this alone makes my heart happy. I had the top down on my car and just enjoying the ride over. Then, I heard these words that were in a song, “you make broken things beautiful. ”Boy, did that stick out to me.
I think people forget that I am just as human as the next person. Therefore, I have flaws, get angry, get upset, make mistakes, deal with gossip and so on. Also, not to mention, that my life has been anything but perfect or put together.
My soul and heart was so so broken when I came to find who the Lord was 4 years ago that I didn’t realize the extent of it till now. People tend to think that when you find the Lord or come to know Christ that your life is forever perfect and you shouldn’t make mistakes. I feel like the more you profess your love for the Lord the more people are waiting for you to mess up so they can say “HA you are not who you say you are or love”. I’ll tell you one thing, I have asked the Lord to prep my heart for the attacks that will come against me because of my imperfections, my past and my mistakes. All of these things make up me. They make up who I am and God has a special purpose for a lot of what I have been though. My hope now is to inspire all of you to embrace the uniqueness, corky person that you are.
I love God with all of my heart BUT this does not make me flawless. I am created new NOT perfect. My heart and focus everyday is to know Him more, grow my relationship with Him, and my mistakes remind me how much more I need Him. When I gave my heart to Jesus things didn’t get easier, my problems didn’t go away in fact.. some things got more difficult. Like, loving your enemies and those who come against. Having grace for the people who have done you wrong and having forgiveness in your heart. I will say that even though it is not easy to face these things daily.. I will say that it is worth it and my heart and soul have never been more at peace than now. Keep resting in Him. Through troubles, ups, downs and all the in between. He is everything you need.
Therefore, all those little broken pieces that you don’t have put together yet, embrace them. They make you, YOU. They will also only be put together by the love of Christ who longs for you. The more I get to know Jesus. The close I get to knowing me. The real me. The me who God wants me to be not what the world wants me to be.
Don’t give up on yourself because God will never give up on you. You are worth it!
