In Ecclesiastes 3:11, Solomon said, “He [GOD] has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.” This passage of text is comforting and also perplexing on so many levels!
I have faced some serious moments of brokenness in my life. There were points where the pieces of me were so destroyed that they weren’t just shattered; they literally were grounded to dust. After the tragic loss of my beloved embryonic twin brother what was left of me was strewn across the pit called ROCK BOTTOM. With a broken heart and shaken hope, I was ready to end all, but God!!
God intervened at the point of my brokenness and with the help of my wife, my children, parents, family, the church, and friends the restoration process began. Additionally, God helped me understand that we all have a date with divine destiny and that His will is good, perfect and acceptable (Romans 12:2).
Jesus ever so lovingly scooped up the pieces of my broken spirit! He is presently and painstakingly putting me back together, piece by broken piece. Where my heart had been ground to dust, He is creating a new one. Every time I suffer another break, He fills in the cracks with His love and life.
The God who “heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds”(Psalm 147:3) is able to do exceedingly-abundantly above all that we could ever ask or think through the power that dwells in us” (Ephesians 3:20).
If it’s ok with you, let me encourage you today that if you feel broken and your heart is in pieces, God can mend them back together. Broken crayons can still color and God promises us that He “is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit” (Psalm 34:18). Our God is able to restore your heart in ways that you never expected.
