Humpty Dumpty

For all of your broken heart and weary, beautiful soul, there is healing in Jesus name.

So here you are, and you’ve has just done a Humpty – Dumpty off the wall and shattered into pieces, but yet, though shattered, there you stand, because life doesn’t go away just because does it? Oh, it’s you, but it’s not you, as you stare into the reality of that surreal nightmarish picture. How? Why? What? yeah all the questions track you down, but no answers beat you up, step on you and grind those already fragmented shards of life into the dirt.

All the king’s horses and all the king’s men can’t put you back together again. Can’t fix it! Can’t mend it! Can’t make it better! No, it can’t be repaired because it’s yours and no one could ever understand, not in a million years could anyone get it! Not now, not ever!

The Good news is, the King can! The One Sovereign King can do it! He’s got the broken pieces! He’s got the skills! He’s got the plan! He’s got the mercy! He’s got the grace! His life was broken too, so yours wouldn’t have to be. Because He was crushed for you, He’s got life for you! And while He holds you in those arms that carried His cross of death, He’s got you in those skilled hands that took the nails! Those same divine hands that healed the sick, and yeah that raised the dead to new life. He’s in the business of putting lives back together again. Reach out to Him! Get with His program and let Him teach you! Allow Him to work His custom plan from the ground up in your life! God’s words through His prophet, Isaiah, to a stubborn and rebellious people, are words for us today in Isaiah 48:17,

“This is what the LORD says, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel, I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is good for you and leads you along the paths you should follow.”

Although it’s a promise first spoken to Israel, It’s a relevant message for those of us travelling this journey of life in need of guidance and help along the way. For those of us who’ve done Humpty Dumpty’s off the wall. So, those broken pieces are fixable, our part is to simply and humbly bend down to pick them up and hand them over and let our Sovereign King do the transforming work in us!

Picking Up The Pieces

Oh yes, He mends, He repairs, He restores and yes, He breaks, but only to remold a stronger character and spiritual maturity within our beautiful souls. Sometimes the break is just in two and sometimes it’s a fragmented heap of debris and ashes left at our feet. But He does care and He is there for the fix ~ the divine fix that goes right to the heart and the deep root of the problem and begins to heal the valuable groundwork of our brokenness. It’s not just a band-aid that God uses to make it all better but He reaches down with a love that’s so unconditional it can make us blush deep within our undeserving selves. He reaches down with an amazing grace beyond our comprehension and a rich mercy going beyond anything we can fathom. Why us? Why Me? But He does! He goes all the way beyond the call of duty to take compassion on us in our heaps of trouble and fragmented broken spirits. Why Us? Why Me? Simply because we’re valuable to Him and He cares. Allow Him to pick up the remains and fashion them back together in a beautiful, brilliant way ~ soothed and saturated with the oil of His healing, filling and cushioning all the jagged edges of all the shattered pieces! Oh that healing oil of grace is a beautiful thing to the one in need. Reach out for it today and accept it, if it’s what you need to make your beautiful soul more beautiful ~ more strong ~ more healed ~ more loved. He’s got you today, beyond the brokenness of the cross and back again. Take Him up on it!

So when it’s all cut and dried it just seems to be one big complicated mess of trouble and suddenly your wonderful world has taken a tumble into inside out and wrong side up. You don’t know what happened, it just did. Trouble knocked on your door and you didn’t even answer but it pushed it’s way like an uninvited guest coming in unannounced and now there you are, in the middle of turmoil and any thing but peace. So what do we do in complicated situations when circumstances are beyond our control and springboards for strife and tension in the workplace, the home, relationships, and hostile surroundings? What to do? Where to turn when the hope that you had yesterday crumbles at your feet leaving your beautiful soul shattered and broken? There is healing for that ~ just when you think nothing could ever help or any good could ever come the Psalmist gives us sweet, assurance in Psalm 147:3 – 4, 5, 7, 12, as he recalls God’s leading of his people out of exile and His restoration of Jerusalem, “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. He counts the stars and calls them by name. How great is our Lord! His power is absolute! His understanding is beyond comprehension…..Sing out your thanks to the Lord…..Glorify the Lord O Jerusalem! Praise your God, O Zion!”

So when your world has been crushed ~ God restores ~ He really does! He restores the ruined. Breathes hope again into complicated situations and offers healing for that shattered and broken, beautiful soul. Dismiss yourself from the unwelcomed guest and get alone with God to sort it all out and lay it all out before Him. Step by step He’ll lead you through! Just trust Him for that today.

“Joyful are those who have the God of Israel as their helper, whose hope is the Lord their God. He made heaven and earth. The sea and everything in them. He keeps every promise forever.” 146: 5, 6

Savor those words! Ponder them in your broken heart! Claim His promises! Psalm 146: 6 is a truth and a promise you can count on.

God Bless
