Day 15: Your mending

Yesterday I asked you to do something hard. I asked you to remember the times in your life when you’ve been broken and to write about them. Today, we move on to sunnier skies.


Because, remember?

God is in the business of mending broken things.

Look back over your list of broken times, broken things, broken relationships, broken dreams. Has God mended any of those places? Can you see the “good” that God has faithfully brought about (Romans 8:28)? If so, write that down with great gratitude.

Not yet? Ask him to. Remember, he is in the business of mending broken things. And I’ll tell you this: no low point in your life needs to ever be wasted. God will use it if you’ll let him.

So let’s remember together today the goodness of our God to never waste a moment, to faithfully do what only he can do: restore, rebuild, remake, repair.
