Have you ever felt broken?
If you answered yes to that question, then you are a normal human being. We have all felt broken at one time or another. I know this because none of us are perfect and it is part of the great plan of happiness for us to have this mortal experience which includes times of brokenness.
So why is God's plan often referred to as the "plan of happiness" if we spend so much of our time being broken? How can we find joy in this journey when our spirit is crushed and it is taking every ounce of strength left just to breathe?
It's because we have a God who loves broken things.
A God who suffered and died for us so that our brokenness can be mended.
Today's song was written by Kenneth Cope and that is the version that I will post first. But there is another cover of the song that I really love. It is by Calee Reed and I found a little snippet of it from one of her Time Out for Women talks. It does not include the full song, but I want to post the video because of the words that Calee shares before she sings the song. Her testimony of a God who loves broken things is powerful and I am grateful that she shared some of her brokenness.
We can learn from and gain strength from sharing our brokenness with others. It's one of the reasons we have those experiences in our lives. We are here to help and lift one another. Sometimes we are the strong ones doing the lifting and other times we are the broken ones who need lifting.
Broken- Kenneth Cope

I am loving my second chance at life.
