ShatteredMany areas in my life have been shattered to pieces. Some pieces grounded down to dust, and others are left as few shards so delicate they cut at first contact. This is how many of us feel, like useless pieces of glass or debris ready to be tossed away, no purpose and no beauty to share with the world.
|Our hearts break to pieces with every painful moment we live|
The first time I read the bible verse above, my thought was but people don't know what I have been through, how can I be a masterpiece when all I have left are shattered pieces of my life? Who wants to use me (not abuse me)? Who would even listen to me?
To my amazement, there is still use and purpose for our lives and experiences. The struggles that I have faced are indeed due to my poor choices and judgment of the moment. However, God can still take a mess and make it into a message. He can use the broken pieces, recycle them and put together into a mosaic masterpiece.
|We can still have purpose regardless of our origin and our prior form|
What is Mosaic?Mosaic is an art form where pieces are gathered to develop a coherent image. It consists of creating images with an assemblage of small pieces with color such as glass, stone, and other material (other material that we would consider ready to toss away). This is what we all are, mosaic art formed in God's image.
God is the glue to our brokenness...
This has been my Aha moment...
