I read something today.
“The more you are acquainted with your own brokenness, the greater your understanding will be of your belovedness.” (In Christ)
It’s a new way to move forward. A different perspective. A challenge to be looking up with hope.
My brokenness runs deep. I imagine no one will ever know or would ever suspect what ragged, jagged pieces make up my story or what the depth of my shame and pain threatens to be. Today. And most every day. I think I hide it so well.
But I also know that Christ’s love reaches even deeper. It’s unconditional and faithful and enormous. And the more I come face to face with my own need, the clearer it becomes that His love reaches this far.
I. Am. Loved.
So keep showing me, Lord. Show me how deep my deprivation. Run your hand along my jagged edges and feel my pain. Don’t let me hunker down and hide. Your love makes way for me to be broken and beloved in the same breath.
Deeply broken. Fiercely loved.
