“You are allowed to be both a masterpiece and a work in progress, simultaneously.” -Sophia Bush
This quote always comes to mind when thinking of brokenness and healing. Even though the two are polar opposites of one another, is it possible to have them co-exist with one another?
This life here on earth is uncertain and unpredictable. One day you may wake up with giant-sized crazy faith that can move mountains. The very next day you may be struggling to even get out of bed. Every bit of the instability of life is ok. We can be all out for Christ in our lives, but we can still have moments of vulnerability. No one has it all together. Everyone has something that they are constantly struggling with: depression, grief, illness, financial hardships, broken relationships, feelings of inadequacy, etc. You can be healed in what God has healed you in, but still are a work in progress everyday.
In your moments of difficulties, that is when you meet God. In your weakness, He is strong. During your darkest hour, that becomes the most beautiful place of humbleness before Him. In that place, you are surrendering your whole being to God. In that place of brokenness, He is picking up your pieces and is putting you back together with His grace.
It is ok to feel like you are stronger and healed in certain areas, but are still trying in other areas. What you see as lack, He sees as whole. Be bold in this season to what God has called you to do. You are enough. He did not call you because you have every little thing figured out. He did not call you because you have it all together. His calling for you is because of who He is.
In your pieces of brokenness, keep going. In your pieces of healing, keep going.
Your healing comes through your brokenness and His healing is in you.
“He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”-Isaiah 40:29-31
“Though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand.” -Psalm 37:24
