My first thought when something is broken is to throw it away.  I am not a person that will glue pieces back together and believe that they will not fall apart again.  I know it is only a matter of time before I find it in disrepair again. 

I have a relative that holds on to everything.  She will glue it back together or nail it back in place.  She is always repairing something, instead of throwing it away or replacing it.

Neither one of these approaches work for spiritual matters.  Isaiah 53:5 says, “But he was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes, we are healed.” God took His son and broke Him, to make us whole.  Our healing can be found in His brokenness. The broken thing is what is useful to God. 

So, whether you are broken in your body, mind, or spirit, the Lord wants to heal you.  Once He has healed you, He wants to use your brokenness to bring healing to others.

Today, I challenge you to look at yourself and find the places that God has healed in you. When you pinpoint these areas, use them to help others find healing. The Lord wants to use you to help others.
