I have been told, “I don’t know how you do it. You are so strong.” It perplexed me when I heard it. All I could think is, “No. O, no. I am not.” We shouldn’t trust what we think we see in others. Things are not always as they appear.
I am not strong. I am broken. I have a million tiny pieces scattered all around. But, God. *His strength is made perfect in weakness. He is a master craftsman. A skillful artist that transforms and inspires. He sees beauty in brokenness and he had a plan for each shard long before it was even broken.
Our brokenness can become wondrous works of art. Each broken piece we give Him becomes a tesserae in His hands. God turns the broken pieces of our lives into colorful mosaics. All that He asks from us is to trust him.
For I am confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will continue to perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus. – Philippians 1:6
*But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. – 2 Corinthians 12:9
