There is a beauty in brokenness. Our eyes are naturally drawn to the blemishes of an item and we try to fix, maneuver and manipulate it away. It’s human nature. And so, we do so. We struggle with the brokenness before we finally come to a place of acceptance. Like broken glass, we are tossed and tumbled until our harsh edges become softened, our bright colors, dulled. But it is then that we are finally useable. From Battered and broken to useful and beautiful – it is not an easy journey. But, when the tragedy is complete, leaves us with something glorious. Just because something is broken, doesn’t mean it is worthy to be tossed away. The ocean, like our Father, comes in and reworks us (like the glass) until we are a thing of glorious wonder!
