Broken Pieces





Christmas is over once the decorations are put away.  Hopefully, the joy of the holiday does not dissipate heading into the New Year.  I was careless while removing ornaments from our tree.  I tried mightily to catch the falling ball but to no avail.  For a second, I thought it would survive the bounce then the crash came with broken pieces scattered over the entire floor.  It looks like one small pile but despite thoroughly sweeping the area, I am still finding remnants 8 to 10 feet away from the point of impact.  Even if I tried, this ornament can never be put back together again.  The sparkle and beauty are lost forever.
Psalm 147:3
He heals the brokenhearted
And binds up their wounds.


Have you been dropped by someone you thought you could trust?  Is your marriage fragile, your family relationships shattered or are there cracks in your spiritual life?  Is your heart broken?  No matter how long ago the hurt occurred or how many times you’ve hit rock bottom, God is able to collect all the pieces and put them back together again.  The Great Physician restores the heart and covers the injury.  What was once damaged can now be useful and a joy to behold. He picks us up and cleans us off so that we might give Him glory.  As we begin 2017, allow God to mend your heart.   Your sparkle and beauty can last forever.
