Feeling Broke or Broken?

What to do with the broken pieces of our life? If we can stand far enough back to see the big picture, we might find something useful.

Broken promises, broken hearts and broken lives separate us. Risking everything, we put our trusts in our jobs, in money, and in people. Failure to live by the standards which we set forth, we are compromising ourselves.

Bargaining doesn’t work when it comes to faithful living. You only have one life to get it right, but God allows second chances. We can start over on a clean slate. Looking back over our lives promotes growth besides we should never stay frozen in time. Moving forward in constant humility inspires new life.

Only in the trials will you find your purpose and it’s only in the tests that you give your testimonies. Life doesn’t play by the rules. The world in which we live is constantly changing. Fear is looming and risk involves taking a leap of faith. Turning it all around will encourage the way you look at things.

Making life work, bringing the broken pieces to shape your future will take time, but the outcome will surprise you. Keep your trust in the only One who never changes. Hold on to your faith, allow for flexibility, and experience growth.

Life can be viewed as a lesson learned, a difficulty to overcome, or an invigorating experience. Why not, pick up the puzzles of your life and see the art of the experience.

  1. I’m beginning to realize the beauty of my brokenness. I really don’t need all of the pieces and some of it are better connected someplace else.🙂

  2. I like how you talked about “the big picture” on the same day I made a joke on my blog about not being able to see it. I can see it most days, and try to live life as an invigorating experience as you’ve said, but some days it’s hard to stand back and see that promising picture. Thanks for taking on this theme–excellent write.

  • Show Some Respect and Change the World — FaithDream’s Inspiration
    I have refrained from giving my opinion during this election. The discouragement and lack of respect given to each of the opponents show little to no value for the American people.

    These guideposts direct you, giving insight. Sometimes God will miraculously open doors for you when you least expect it.  They might appear to be coincidental but in reality they are meant for you to make a decision. The guideposts are there.
