What would it be like if you had a broken vase in your home?
What if it was broken while on it’s special place in the center of a table and then moved to a corner—what would that be like?
If the entire room was clean, straightened, and put in place, likely you would still think about the broken vase in the corner.
Even if everything in the room was right, the broken vase would still come to your mind and you would want to fix it somehow.
There might be those who would simply sweep up the broken pieces and throw them away.
But not you.
The vase is valuable, and to discard it would be very painful.
The problem is, you do not have any means to fix the vase and you do not have the skill.
The delicate shards are sharp and in need of a fine glue, a glue that you do not possess.
Although visitors might come and go from your home and never notice the broken vase, you always remember that it is there.
That’s what it would be like.
The situation would seem hopeless.
But what if someone with the special glue could be found who knew just how to repair it?
Someone who could restore your precious vase?
You may not have a broken vase in your home, yet there is likely something broken in your heart.
There is a relationship with someone that is in pieces.
The fractured segments lay in sharp and broken shards.
There are those who would forget the relationship, be it one with a spouse, a child or a parent.
But not you.
The relationship with the person is like the person themselves—valuable and irreplaceable.
The problem is, you do not possess the skill or have the proper means to put the relationship back together.
You’re only hope IS the only hope—-Jesus.
He can truly mend broken hearts.
Mend broken relationships.
Mend broken lives.
You must bring the broken pieces to Him in prayer, and ask for healing and restoration.
Do you have a broken vase in the corner today?
Let’s bring them to Jesus.
The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
