Beauty in the Broken

Our job ensures we often encounter people at points they feel broken, in a place where they feel like a lost cause, unable to pick themselves up and put themselves back together? Ashamed to let others know what they are going through.

Often too tired to mask the pain experienced with a smile, feeling like God wants nothing to do with their broken pieces. They seek help from others and fail to realize that their helpers were once broken too but have been restored. (and working to fulfill his calling).

We recognize that our team is solely made up of broken yet restored people. We do not have it all together and at times we all have moments where we feel like we are broken pieces that can’t seem to be put back together. Our beauty comes from working together, sharing and lifting each other with words of encouragement, worship, prayers, giving and working in unity. In this, we realize the truth, that our loving God isn’t afraid of our brokenness. He doesn’t see us the way we see ourselves. Our heavenly Father sees beauty in what is broken, he sees ahead of us like what those ruins become when we find faith in him and use our broken pieces for his glory.

He gently knits and moulds us together, tenderly mending our wounds. He rebuilds and restores us into something more beautiful than we were ever before. 

We quickly realize our beauty when we acknowledge that in our limitation is where his strength and power lay, he sends helpers in various forms to our aid, he rebuilds us and we carry the baton to fulfill his mandate in our lives to play a minuscule part in rebuilding others.

When we choose to open up our hearts and allow God to come in and restore us, He is faithful to do so. James 4:8 says, “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.” When we choose to not hide away, but rather run to the arms of Jesus, He will take all the wreckage, all the rubble, and by His grace and His goodness, He will rebuild us.
