…and somehow? Maybe our hearts are made to be broken. Broken open. Broken free. Maybe the deepest wounds birth deepest wisdom.
We are made in the image of God. And wasn’t God’s heart made to be broken too? Wounds can be openings to the beauty in us. And our weaknesses can be a container for God’s glory.
Our bad brokenness is made whole by His good brokenness.
If we could figure that out – live that out – then could we know the grace that knows how to live fully, even though we’re brokenhearted?
Keep believing as you look into the week ahead: In Christ—no matter the way, the storm, the story—we always know the outcome.
Our Savior—surrounds. Our future—secure. Our joy—certain.
That’s all for this weekend, friends.
Go slow. Be God-struck. Grant grace. Live Truth.
Give Thanks. Love well. Re – joy, re- joy, ‘re- joys’ again
