God is a master craftsman who can transform our brokenness

An absolutely beautiful reflection “The Beauty of Brokenness” today from Christine Sine at Godspace.  (Christine posts reflective prayer exercises / meditations every Monday.)  The post begins with a discussion of the Japanese art of Kintsugi, the art of mending broken pottery with lacquer resin sprinkled with powdered gold, or silver or platinum.

Here’s part of the closing prayer / meditative exercise which is part of the post:

What is one broken area in which you still long to see transformation and wholeness? Name it and lift it up before God in prayer. Ask God to act as the master craftsman mending and making whole your brokenness.

I encourage you to go read / watch it all!
