Five Minute Friday: Broken

So many pieces of our lives. So much fragility. So much sin. But He knows our frame. He died for us. The one who was perfect. The one who was without sin.

Lives are torn apart and broken through the consequences and choices of others. If we could stop. Breathe. Get centered on God’s truth, how many choices would never be made. And how much of our lives and the lives of those around us not suffer the consequences of our decisions?

But we are broken. Sinful. Full of fear, envy and anger. We know not how to walk. We think we do, but we don’t and our lives bear that out.

But then, He was broken, bruised and crucified to give us a better life. To free us from our bondage to sin and lies and hate. The flesh.

And it doesn’t stop there. When salvation is received, He turns our ashes into beauty. Have you ever stood back and looked at the choices – the poor choices—you’ve made and seen how God has made them beautiful? To me, I am ever in awe of the power God has had over my life to turn my brokenness into beauty.

Savior, I love you.

Hey there, I'm your FMF neighbor.
You've written a beautiful post. It folds in with my thoughts lately as I study Jonah by Priscilla Shirer. Sometimes, sharing these words acts just like water on a plant.

This is my 2d time posting w/FMF and it's a real blessing.

Thanks for your words.

Amen! TO loving our Savior.
