I'm late...

Okay, be honest, how many of you thought I was pregnant by that post title? heehee  Part of me would be so thrilled, if I were. (The part that doesn't feel 47 years old.)  I have strong baby cravings and dreams. Dreams of cuddly babies, and breastfeeding, and baby smells (the good ones, ha!).

But this post isn't about my being pregnant. It's a Five Minute Friday post. And it's the following Wednesday, which is why I'm late.

Five minutes of writing abandon. Which is sometimes reckless. And often a release. Always a fun time.

So, here goes. Writing on the topic:

GO:

I've had many broken things in my life.

Broken bones, and broken dreams.

Broken heart, and broken promises.

I've done some breaking, and I've been on the receiving end.

But the breaking is never easy, regardless.

The wonderful part of being broken is that it's a new start. A fresh beginning.

Just like Jesus was broken for us. No broken bones; but he felt the agony of broken relationships and broken fellowship with God.

God broke fellowship with Himself.

For us.

How amazing is that? Can there be anything broken in my life, anything that I've broken, that cannot be fixed by a God who breaks things just to make them new again?

I love broken. It's a good place to be. It doesn't feel good, but that's like so many things with God. Things meant for evil are turned into good. Things that hurt become joy. Ashes turned to beauty. Broken things made whole again. Scars and all.

Scars are signs of broken made new.  That's why we get to see the scars of Jesus. We get to see what He did, that He broke death through His scars. He broke the curse over us. He broke the stronghold of sin. He broke the lies, and made them new with truth. His Truth.

He is Risen!

All things are new again.

Nothing is impossible with our God.



STOP

  1. Beautiful reflection on "broken", Selena. This astounds me in particular, more this year than ever, I think: "God broke fellowship with himself." Amazing beyond words. I think of how Jesus cried out, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" so we wouldn't ever have to. He breaks, but he makes new. He allows broken, and he redeems what is broken by the world. What a beautiful God.
