in 100 Words

We live in a broken world, but we don’t have to accept brokenness as the final answer. 

We are broken people, but our lives don’t have to be defined by the irreparable messes we’ve made or the grave wounds we carry.

In the hands of a Healer,

And the heart of an Artist,

We are more than a pile of useless pieces.

We are His work of art.

And in a stunning act of clarity and focus,

He chose…


To work…

With broken pieces.

But He insists that you entrust all the broken pieces of your life to Him.

Beautiful. And without those broken pieces, we wouldn’t be who we are today.

We all have broken pieces, some a little more shattered than others. But the Lord can truly make something beautiful out of the pieces. You are a beautiful and wonderful person Andy. I have always seen the Lord in you. You shine bright when the son shines on you for all to see. Be blessed this day and everyday.
