Wednesday devotion 6/14/17
We are all, in one way or another, broken. Either or body, or of spirit. We are broken in what we should do, but have not. Or of what we should not do, but have done anyway. We are all broken to some degree. We are all, in some way or another, not as good as we can be, we are to some extent not being as good as we can be.
However, it is in this brokenness that we find each other, we can reach out to each other and embrace a common part or our lives that is shared universally. We are broken in one way or another. But in this brokenness, there are chances for change, there are ways to fix our brokenness.
For each and every one of us, we have the ability to fix what is broken, to repair what has been done and to learn how to not become broken in the same way again. Being human is not a perfect or exact existence, it is not an easy path that we follow, it is not even a path that in some cases we would have chosen to follow. Regardless of the path we have been given or forged, we must accept that we will make mistakes, we will fall at times, we will become broken.
Whether you are religious or not, whether you accept a faith or not, at some point we will become broken. But in this brokenness, we find beauty, we find that which makes us human, we find that which we can fix, if we wish, or want to. And have the courage to do so.
Being broken is not the end, rather it is the acceptance that you can make yourself better in ways that you may have never dreamed of.
My hope and prayer for us all, is that we find and embrace our brokenness and find our way to work together to find a way to overcome it.
