I dropped my phone the other day at work. Down it fell. Now it’s broken. 😦
Not the phone. It works just fine. But the screen. It shattered. I ordered a new screen kit online complete with a new glass screen and tools to replace and fix it myself. More than likely I will not succeed in doing so. But I still intend to try.
Lots of things are broken. People for one thing. Their physical brokenness may be apparent, but for some, they may look fine on the outside and be broken on the inside.They are broken emotionally. Mentally. Sometimes even shattered. Just like my phone.
If you happen to be one of those kind of people or know one, you know, the broken ones, know that Jesus is the best source to fix what’s broken. Even shattered. Let Him love you. Let Him fill the voids you carry on the inside. Those cracks of emptiness. Let His love seep down into the smallest of crevices and fill you. Complete you. Another person cannot. And as hard as you may try, neither can you. Just like I probably won’t be able to fix my broken screen by myself.
The good news is professionals can. The phone doctor for my screen and Jesus for our broken minds, bodies, hearts, and souls.
According to the 1600’s philosopher, Blaise Pascal, “There is a God shaped vacuum in the heart of every person which cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God, the Creator, made known through Jesus.” God sent his only son to restore all the things broken by sin by first restoring the relationship between us and our heavenly father.
Let’s all stop living with things that are broken. Let’s fix what we can fix. Like our phone screens. And allow our Lord to fix the rest. Like our relationships. Our hearts and our spirits. And let’s all let love be the glue we use to bind the broken we encounter.
The LORD is near to the brokenhearted And saves those who are crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:18
Love and laughter,
