We celebrate God’s faithful promises to us, and He will never fail. He is redeeming all of His creation: making it new, whole, complete. All the disjointed, fractured, frustrating things are being fixed. And one day—the Day of the Lord, when Jesus returns—all thing will be made new.
But while we wait for that day, each of us will experience both the joy and the pain of being made whole and new. For the pieces of our lives that are already broken, we find comfort and healing; God’s love enters in and brings life, peace and health. He restores the purpose for those parts of our life.
For the unBROKEN pieces of our lives—those pieces that need to be broken, like hard-heartedness, or lack of love, or sinful patterns —we will experience his presence and help, and it will hurt to make those changes.
It’s both, really. We need wholeness for our brokenness. And we need brokenness, too. Brokenness has value in that it reshapes us for his purposes; making us more into the likeness of Christ each day.
This Lenten and Easter Season, may you find wholeness and brokenness. You will find both as you discover how much God loves you. He loves you so much that he sent his Son here, to take our flesh, to be BROKEN for our forgiveness. And now he is resurrected, UNbroken forever, for us, and for God’s glory.
God bless you, with just what you need this season...to know and love him always, in all ways.
