Broken Things Can Become Blessed Things If You Let God Do the Mending!

Updated on October 7, 2018

Writing is my passion. I have an undying thirst and quest in the field of writing. Some eat, drink or use drugs when stressed, I write.

When you feel broken and needs mending back together again; God is the ultimate mender of all things broken.

If you have a torn soul and a broken heart that need fixing, God will take the broken pieces of your life and mend them back together again.

All you have to do is bring to God what's broken, and He can restore those broken pieces into a masterpiece. Each of us, with all of our broken pieces of life, desolation, and heartbreaks, scars and all, can become blessed things if we let God do the mending.

Drug abuse, alcoholism, physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, bullying or whatever type of ill-treatment - God can take all the broken pieces of your life and restore what seems broken beyond repair.

God is the greatest recycler. Allow Him to remove all the trash out of your life and recycle it into something valuable.

God knows how to find the beauty in brokenness. Allow Him to locate the beauty in your brokenness and all of the sad feelings you have in your life to mend you back together again to make you whole.

Finding the Beauty in Brokenness.

We live in a world where sometimes life's challenges just seem impossible to overcome, so much to learn and put together like many different jigsaw puzzle pieces.

Even when we strive and find out how to put the pieces together, they don’t always hold together. At times, we find ourselves lost, twisted, or detached from the life we strive so hard to put together and live on a daily.

Life would be so much easier if all the pieces of life’s puzzles would always hold tight together once we place them in the order that leads to a bright future. Nonetheless, it's not that simple.

Life arises with ups and downs which make us have to build, rebuild, start over in the search for life’s puzzle pieces. While striving to make sure the correct puzzle piece is placed in the proper order, sometimes, your entire world will come crashing down like a domino effect.

Nothing hurts an individual more, especially a mother who ever felt like they’ve been torn and broken into so many different pieces.

God wants to pick up all the broken pieces of your shattered life and mend them back together again. They are various reasons people become broken and wounded.

Maybe you trust the wrong person you allow into your life, and they hurt you. Perhaps someone whom you trust and lean on for strength died - whatever the reason is, there is always a way to discover the beauty of your broken pieces.

Although you allow yourself to be helpless in the situation that left you feeling broken and wounded, God can mend your b-r-o-k-e-n pieces and help you to find the beauty in brokenness.

First, you have to allow God to restore your faith in living and life. Jeremiah 30:17 share “For I will restore health to you, and your wounds I will heal, declares the Lord, because they have called you an outcast: ‘It is Zion, for whom no one cares!’

God is in the healing business and can mend all the brokenness of your broken heart, your wounded spirit, and troubled mind.

Searching for the beauty in your life from being broken isn’t easy to find. However, it can be found even if you have to look beyond the beauty in a beautiful flower to see it in a wildflower that grows in the strangest place.

It can be found in a gentle stranger who smiles and asks how you are doing, in-kind gentlemen who hold the door for a lady to walk through. No matter where you begin to search, there is always beauty in life that can light up an individual’s life like a lightning bug.

The best way not to allow a broken life is to enable the spirit of God to shine through your struggle. When someone is broken, he or she is hopeless unless repaired. When a person is financial, emotionally and physically drained, so that absolutely nothing left, he or she is said to be "broke."

Ways to find beauty in the midst of brokenness:

Proverbs 25:28 He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls. When a person is broken, there is a tendency to extrapolate and assume the future holds more of the same.

No, we do not have to hold on to those thoughts, especially when things are not going the way we want it. Breath and remember life is full of stresses, and we should look for the positive in life.

Stop accepting the worst in life because pessimism is a bad habit. Live life one day at a time. Wait and see what life has to offer.

Just because something goes wrong once in a while, or one chapter of the book has a sad story does not mean the entire story has to end badly.

To overcome accepting the worst in life, stop its rant by telling yourself to “wait and see.”

Change your negative thoughts and focus on the positive in your life. When we allow negativity in our mind, it enters boldly like a rock coming down a foothill.

However, we have to find a passage that will enable us to change the negative thoughts and focus on any positive happening in our life.

Also, we have to make sure the people around us are positive people- people who will encourage and help us to take charge of our thoughts to prevent the negatives from entering, so we can transform our thoughts to positive.

Bring you out of the situation.

When a person’s hope is destroyed, he is heartbroken. In a situation that makes you feel broken or drags you down, removes yourself from the scenery.

Meditation and prayers are a good solution when removing yourself from things that pull you down. When we want to see the result in any situation, we have to ask God to help us to be strong.

Daily prayer and meditation give us a point of origin. It fixes us and amends anything broken.

Learn how to get an attitude of gratitude. When a person hits rock bottom, he or she is broken. However, in the midst of feeling broken decide to focus on the things you are grateful for – things that are good in your life.

Start by being thankful for waking to another day to remember all the times when things were rough, but you came out on top. One of my favorite encouraging quotes is “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

We all should look for ways to find the beauty in brokenness because only God can take all the broken pieces and turn them into something beautiful.

To locate the beauty in our everyday challenges and return to find peace, we need to figure out why our life is broken. When our lives are shattered, it needs fixing.

However, sometimes the hardest thing to realize in life is why someone hurt us or why they deceit us. However, we must not contemplate "Why?” because it will only leave us bitter and cynical.

When searching for answers, we must know how to receive a response and when something needs fixing, we cannot try to fix it ourselves or fake as if everything is okay.

Allow God to fix what's broken and remember, don’t meddle in your brokenness -God offers the possibility to be whole again. Broken things can become Blessed things if we let God do the Mending.
