May 27 Devotion

As I’m writing this, I am wondering about the broken pieces that we have in our lives. The things that caused us harm. Caused us heartache. Maybe some things that you brought on yourself. Maybe some things that someone brought on to you unexpectedly. Or maybe, just maybe, you were the one who caused others to have broken pieces. Maybe you did so without even knowing that you did. Or maybe, you did so knowing what you were doing. No matter what circumstance or situation you fall into, we all have dealt with broken pieces. Either in our lives or in the lives of others that we know.

As we’re thinking about this, let’s also remember that no matter what it is that is broken, God can mend it. No matter what it is that has caused us harm, God can mend it. No matter what it is that has caused us heartache, God can mend it. Broken relationships. Broken spirit. Broken whatever. God can mend all of them. I am a firm believer in this. I have seen it. I have seen it in my life. In the lives of those around me. I have witnessed it firsthand. And I bet many of you have as well. 

One thing that we must keep in mind is that this does not mean that we are going to avoid pain. I’m not talking about physical pain. I am talking about the kind of pain that we feel internally. God mending these for us does not take away the pain necessarily. And I think that is because we can grow stronger going through those. A veteran that I know sent me a video yesterday. In the video of the voice said that he prayed for strength. And that God gave him difficulties to make him strong. And I think that’s an example of God mending the situation. Placing in his life a difficulty for him to go through. Never leaving his side. Leading him through it. Very hard I’m sure. Possibly causing pain. But the result was being stronger. So today, be encouraged knowing that God can pull you through any difficult season that you’re going through. But you must seek him and let him take control.
