Broken - Five Minute Friday

Here we write unhindered by fear or grammar for five minutes.  We let the words fly freely and see what comes.  We join and encourage.  Join us here for the details.

Five Minute Friday


We all start out that way – broken!  The tiniest, most seemingly perfect babe – broken already.  It’s part of our nature, our being.  We ignore our brokenness and move through life with a blind eye – until it hits us.

There is no amount of super glue in the world that can put back together the pieces of our bodies, hearts and minds.  Our souls.

Then we find The Healer, the master physician whose stitches are sure and steady.  The stitching is often painful and the mending process ugly in our own eyes – but it is complete and starts from the inside out.  We aren’t left like an antique clockwork toy that looks good but no longer functions.

We aren’t only reconnected, we are EMPOWERED!  The surrender of the will to the salvation and lordship of God allows entry for the Holy Spirit to come with the dunamis* – the power of DYNAMITE.

We are no longer broken, you may see our scars, but they are stronger than what was originally there.

  1. Hallelujah!I think our scars are beautiful because they are reminders that we are no longer who we used to be - we've been touched and healed by an Almighty God. Love this!

  2. I love this, Amy! I reminded me of an old Focus on the Family story I heard on the radio when my little was - well, little! The Mom was recalling how her little in the backseat would get all worked up whenever she would see a scar on her arm - thinking it was a new ouchie... she has to explain that it was no longer painful... but oh how we are covered in scars and some of them are beautiful and some stir up old pain... but we are covered in Him... no longer broken! So powerful!

  3. We should call "Scars" beauty marks, for they're the marks of our healing.

    Great post,

  4. Scars point to the healing and transforming work of God. This post, so beautiful!

  5. Oh yes, He is our healer...and I'm so thankful for that! xo

  6. I love this- the Holy Spirit comes with dynamite! That's a great visual!

  7. Hey!! so glad I waited to read until done posting. Amazing how our brains think alike on occasion, sweet friend. Thankful for Jesus, the soul-gluer!

    Love you!
