Broken things

'And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose." ~ Romans 8:28

I share with you, what I've echoed to myself these past couple of weeks.  Feeling from your emails that some of you may just be in need of this reminder too.

I would also like to share a quote with you from a book that I am reading by M.R. De Haan, MD called "Broken Things."

If you are being broken by disappointment or bereavement, by loss or pain, by weakness or sickness, remember that although to us broken things are tragedies, to God they are opportunities to be used for His glory.  We cast the broken things aside and call them "junk," but God casts the "unbroken" things aside as useless.

"Remember, before there can be life there must be death.  Before there can be joy, there must be weeping.  The joy that floods the mother's heart at the sound of the first cry of her new newborn babe was proceeded by tears of anguish in childbirth."

 Jesus said: "Except a grain of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abides alone; but if it dies, it brings forth much fruit." ~ John 12:24
