Humpty Dumpty Sat on a Wall
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall; Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. All the King's horses and all the King's men Couldn't put Humpty together again.
I'm sure we have all heard this nursery rhyme at least once in our lifetime.
I know as a child I heard it, and would often sing it myself. This rhyme was the message in church today, and it was such a good example to what life is like sometimes.
We have all been a broken egg at one time in our lives, or even several times. We have felt like we couldn't be fixed, "All the King's horses couldn't put Humpty Dumpty back together again".
In all actuality a broken egg can't be restored. But I am here to tell you that there is only One King that can put you back together again, and that is the King of kings and the Lord of lords, Jesus Christ our Savior.
No substitute of any kind can truly fix you, these are only temporary fixes but the Lord of lords and the King of kings can fix you, and it is EVERLASTING. No problem is too big, He is our resource to being made WHOLE again.
Mat. 9:22 But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.
God Wants You Whole - and complete
God wants you WHOLE, complete, with nothing missing or anything broken. Physically, spiritually, emotionally, financially, etc. This is what I believe - and the scriptures of the word back this up. WHOLE is the complete opposite of broken.
Mat.12:13 Then saith He to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like as the other.
God does not and will not condemn you for being broken in some way - but He does NOT want you to STAY broken!
Psa. 51:17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
When they say that a Christian should become "broken." They really mean bringing the body (flesh) and soul (mind, will, and emotions) under the control of the spirit. And that IS completely scriptural! But that process, starting with the renewal of the mind, is a process of becoming WHOLE! And only He can fix you. No sin is too big, no problem is too big, no broken heart is too big. Relationships can be fixed but you have to be willing to go to the One who can fix it all. God can also change a bad situation and turn it around for good, if you trust in him and let Him do so.
He Heals - The Broken Hearted
Awhile back I found out that the father of my children married the woman that he had an affair on me with. She has two teenagers of her own that live with them. This was a hard thing for me to swallow, especially when he worked so much and didn't even have time for his own kids. He also had a hard time accepting my oldest son from a previous marriage, but I don't blame him entirely because he was so young (25) himself when we initially were married.
Today I have to believe that even in this time God can take a bad situation and turn it around for good. In fact He is already working things out for the good of my children and me, with one of the three being special needs. I just recently got hired for a job that offers benefits and a opportunities. I got my foot in the door and although it won't happen overnight, I do believe that the Lord is already at work to see that my children and myself are in the best care.
But in truth I am not going to lie and pretend that I was not broken by all of this. I have a broken heart but I also know that God is working everything out for our good. I trust Him to fix us, and our brokenness as a family. He has never failed me, not once and never will.
He can fix you but you must go to Him with everything so that you can be made Whole! The state of brokenness, being crushed, and oppressed is NOT from God. However, God will NEVER leave you or forsake you. Remember this. He will stay near you, and if you let Him, He will deliver you out of it. He can't do this, however, if we don't first turn our hurts and sorrows over to Him.
"He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds." Psalm 147:3
Steps Towards Healing
Brokenness comes from holding on to our sorrows and letting them eat away at us. When we turn over those hurts and pain to the Lord and ask Him to accept them on our behalf, we have taken the first step toward healing. Forgive yourself and others for whatever has happened. As long as you hold onto blame or anger, your brokenness will remain.
Let go of the bitterness and acknowledge it. No matter what has befallen you during your journey, you will have something to be thankful for. This can be the most difficult step, especially if your loss has been a profound one such as; death, divorce, etc. But as you pray to the Lord, He will remind you of the amazing gift that He has given you - eternal life and His unending love! With these two great gifts, how can we hold onto our earthly sorrows? Express your gratitude to Him daily.
Only by your grace Dear Lord and by Your Healing power can our hearts be changed. We boldly come to You, desperate and broken, sad by our mistakes, our pain, and our sorrows. We rejoice in the good news that is in Christ our Saviour, we are made new, we are forgiven, and made Whole.Thanks be to God!
