Good News Friday: Broken and Beautiful

Inspirational Thought of the Day:

We are never closer to God than at our most broken moments.

Scripture of the Day:

Isaiah 57:15

“For this is what the high and exalted one says, the one who rules forever, whose name is holy: “I dwell in an exalted and holy place, but also with the discouraged and humiliated, in order to cheer up the humiliated and to encourage the discouraged.”

Sometimes we we feel bummed we think we are not good company.  We are supposed to always be cheerful and never admit to our brokenness. But sometime we have to be still and see our need.  It is in those moments that we draw nearer to God.

He is with the broken and contrite and He came for those who were lost – not for those who have everything together.

We might try to avoid brokenness.  It hurts.  We don’t want to admit that life is hard and often confusing.  We are supposed to have the answers . . . and we do.  The Word of God has all we will ever need, but it does not mean we are perfect.  It means we know where to go when the chips are down and when we are in seasons of blessing, as well.

Most amazing of all – there truly is no one higher than God, yet He chooses to associate with the lowly, the downtrodden and forgotten.  Perhaps it is because we recognize our need for a Savior when we are vulnerable enough to face our own lack.

To be broken truly is beautiful – because in that moment we are able to be healed by a God Who knows how to perfectly fit the pieces all together.

Lord, thank You for loving the weak and coming for the hurting.  Thank You that You are all we need.
