We are broken. We are broken. We are broken. We are broken. We are broken. We are broken. We are broken. We are broken. We are broken. We are broken. We are broken. We are broken. We are broken. We are broken.
What are doing with the broken pieces? When glass shatters we sweep all the pieces away. We make sure the are no stray pieces that might cut us. We never stop to look at those pieces on the floor. How could something that seems so strong be so fragile? How could something that was once so beautiful be now considered trash and thrown away?
What would happen if were to look at those broken pieces, pick them up and instead of throwing them away we found a way to put them back together again? What if we took them and said “this isn’t trash, these pieces represent a future and a hope.”
We are standing in the midst of broken glass right now and we have a choice. Are we going to see trash? Or are we going to see opportunity. A chance to make something better. A hope and a future.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, says the Lord, and I will bring you back from your captivity; I will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you, says the Lord and I will bring to the place from which I cause you to be carried away captive. (Jeremiah 29:11-13 NKJV)
