I have a friend who described to us what she 'saw' during worship at the church a couple of weeks ago...
The picture was one of a cracked vase - and as she watched, the cracks were filled up with gold - making a breath-takingly beautiful pattern.
She was so humble, and so excited as she shared this picture.
In the past, I have been astounded at the fact that our Father would take broken pieces and heal them - making beauty, AND actually making the cracked places stronger (not more vulnerable) than the rest because of His touch.
Now I add this new element. His Super Glue is like gold, and the pattern of our brokenness is a beautiful pattern.
2 Corinthians 12:9
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
