This week’s Challenge is Selfie. I decided on an artistic representation, and took a photo of my reflection in a mirror, with a broken picture frame glass sitting on top of it. I then cropped out everything around the frame to make it look like a picture of myself, only broken.
My emphasis was on the blurred, broken glass for a reason. Throughout my life, I have struggled with seeing myself as broken. As damaged, flawed and inadequate.
The good news us that God welcomes the broken, lost and discarded. In fact, He specializes in mending and then using them for His glory, despite shortcomings and flaws.
I know, because He did so with me. With God’s help, I don’t see myself as broken; rather, perfectly designed for His purposes. And I celebrate knowing that He loves me just as I am.
“I am like a broken vessel.”
“He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.”
Do you struggle with feelings of inadequacy and brokenness? God can heal and use the shattered pieces of your life.
This is a wonderful song and video that speaks to how God mends brokenness:
