Tuesday 8.16.11

Our brokeness can be used to make something beautiful.  I heard a testimony from a lady who was going through a very hard time.  Her marriage had ended and her lifetime battle of overcoming anger she experienced since she was six years old had peaked.  When she was six her parents were getting a divorce and this was in the 70’s when they put children on the stand.  They asked her who did she want to live with.  Either answer was wrong she said it was a loaded question.  Her anger has peaked and her marriage was now ending.  She moved to start over and everything got broken in the moving truck.  Her best friend had helped her with the mess and swept up broken glass out of the truck for her.  Later on her birthday, her friend gave her a beautiful stain glass window hanging made out of the broken glass. 
God can do the same with us.  He takes our broken pieces and makes us even more beautiful and stronger. 

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.  Romans 8:28
