Sony’s Thoughts: Beautifully Broken
Canaan’s Crossing sings a song titled “Beautiful Broken.” As I listened to it yesterday, I thought about what it means to be “beautifully broken, willingly wasted, lovingly lavished here at Your feet.” When we think of things being broken, it’s a sad thing, not joyous in the least. However, when it comes to people, it’s when we are broken that God is refining us, turning us into something beautiful.
Jesus said, “Blessed are the poor in Spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven” yet I never see people rejoice about the fact that they are poor in anything. Our society has made us believe that riches and happiness are success. Wrong again. If Jesus is the love of your life, no matter where you find yourself in life, you can be truly grateful. Don’t measure your success by the world’s standards. Read the Word and see what Jesus says truly matters. Then count your blessings.
Whether you are on top of the mountain or broken today, go out and shine for Jesus. He has you right where you are for His purposes. He loves you so much. He has not left you. Cling to Him, praise Him, and thank Him for making you beautiful in His sight. After all, that’s the only thing that really matters.
