Fixed in Brokenness

Friday means Five Minute Fridays. So I write for Five minute, no edits, no re dos and at the end I will see if there are pictures from this week that match the words of this week.

Topic: Broken
I walked into work today and received a compliment on my pin. I love the pin also I said. It adds just the right amount of fun and glamour to any outfit I put it with.
With in seconds the pin broken.
There it is broken, no ability to do what it was made to do. Now I could have thrown it out at this point. I have no means to fix it at work. But instead I took out a bobby pin and twisted it through the thread and then through the threads on the jacket. Fixed.
Fixed in Brokenness... That is what we are, Steve and I everyone, we are fixed in our brokenness. God can make something work again when all we see is the broken shambles of what we thought was perfection. 

He calls us to be what he has made us to be, though we may feel like we are holding on with a bobby pin, we need to know that we are secure.

"True brokenness is a lifestyle - a moment-by-moment lifestyle of agreeing with God about the true condition of my heart and life - not as everyone else thinks it is but as He knows it to be."
