Slightly broken


Day 11 of 31 Days of October – Roses Among The Thorns

She was a gift at Christmas from a co-worker.  I loved her at first sight.  This grace girl with wings holding a cross.  She symbolized so much to me.

Last week she fell off the piano.  It was all my fault.  My carelessness.  When I retrieved her from the dark recesses of the hollow between wall and piano, a wing was broken.  Beyond repair, because I didn’t have all the pieces to put her back together whole and new.

Sadness.  What to do with her now with a broken wing.  Not so pretty.  Not so perfect.

After several ideas went through my mind, I placed her back on the piano, broken wing and all.  Her imperfections are glaring.  But she symbolizes so much to me.

I am that grace girl.  Totally dependent on the grace of Jesus Christ whose death on the cross clothed me in a robe of righteousness.  I have no wings, though I do long to be more perfect at this age, having served the Lord for so many years.

I am slightly broken and always will be until I am made completely new in my Heavenly home.  I will exchange corruption for incorruption.  My mortality will be replaced with immortality.  And I will be like Him.  Oh glorious day!

Of this I am sure, that the One who began His good work in me will go on developing my life until the day of Jesus Christ.  But until then, my broken-ness will testify of Christ’s completeness and how He takes me as I am and does not give up on me.  He places me where I can display His grace.  And somehow through that, He will be glorified.





Join me on my October journey as I challenge myself to write for 31 days.   You are most welcome.
