Broken world, Broken people, Broken promises.
Believing that I may have to be broken to see how very broke the world is, and God’s children are.
The beauty in the brokeness is heightened. Senses are stronger, and compassion is easy to feel and extend. No tolerance for those misleading others. Reaching out to help another stand when crawling is what you are doing. This is Kingdom living,
Somewhere thru the years, we have been taught that Christians are together people, nothing bad happens to them, and if it does they are being punished. No truth in that! They wear phony smiles, and have condemning eyes. They think that being an odd people means to button the top button, and have no sense of style, to stand out in fashion. Oh but it should be to stand out in Heart! Being a Christ follower is a heart change, that is odd to the world. Love should fill your eyes, and compassion is a normal reaction.
We walk thru our pains, and struggles. None of us perfect. No one has it all figured out. We live in a broken world, we are broken people. This is Kingdom living. The Kingdom is here, and we are on a search and rescue mission. The power of God goes before us, and the love of Christ motivates us. We are not the elite, we are losers, screw ups. We don’t impress the elite crowd, and we don’t want to. We are beautiful chaotic messes. We are the bride of Christ. Kingdom living…willing to drown in pain to grab you out. Join me, stop the rituals, we have lots to do.
May God empower you, fill you with joy while hurting, give you love for the unlovely. May you have a dance in your step, a song on your lips, and a heart that sees the Kingdom working around, thru and in you. Step up, take your place…
