Broken Crayons Still Color

The Lord wants us to know that He runs to our brokenness/hurt/shame/ guilt and pain. Brokenness is a symbol that we need Him. We are incomplete without Him. He is the only One that can make us new. He takes what is broken and uses it to be a platform to set you and others free.

A few years ago, my husband and I made a decision that we believed was a move from God. We moved on what God said we just forgot to ask the question of “when”. Boy did we find out about the timing of God versus our timing. It was definitely different. We were going full speed ahead with no stop signs ahead. When my husband and I noticed that we had no peace in this move. We quickly gathered the family and discussed the importance of following the leading of God and His timing.  We felt broken and thought that we made a huge mistake and that being used by God was non-existent. But God…….. Even in our mishaps, even in our feeling low and disposable, God saw hope and saw children that wanted so desperately to follow his leading and just missed it on timing. Admittedly, God showed Himself strong and showed that his love is stronger than any failure we could ever experience. He showed us that even in our brokenness that He could still use us.  You see will tell this story from a place of victory rather than fighting for victory.   We share this story by telling the importance of Gods timing and how it makes a BIG difference.  You see God gets the glory even with a broken situation. You see my sister and brother you have not gone too far for God not to catch you. You have not been so low that God can’t reach you. God can use the broken or hopeless situation to create a masterpiece. A broken crayon/person in the hand of the Master can be a work of art.

Prayer: I am a child of the Most High God. God can take my brokenness and make me whole and complete. God use my brokenness to show that in your hands all things are possible. I have the opportunity to be all that God has created me to be. I will not focus on my past and mistakes, but focus on the purpose and plan that you have for me in Jesus name.
