Broken Crayons Still Color!
Please remember this if you’re struggling with your health, finances, family issues, a painful loss, and you feel broken, discouraged or hopeless this Christmas. You may be broken-hearted, have a broken spirit, a broken family, your body, mind- even your life- feels crushed and in pieces. Only God can pick up the shattered pieces and mend your hurt. And He will- gently, with love, and faithfully each day, if you place your hope and trust in Him.
Your life still has meaning and purpose. Your mind and body still belong to God- you are His child, His beloved. And He cares for you deeply. No matter what you’re going through right now, you still have much to experience, to learn, to find joy in, and to share, as you color the world with the beautiful things God has placed inside you.
Don’t lose hope, my Friend. Hold on to it like a treasured keepsake. Draw near to Jesus and He will draw near to you and lift you up. The world needs your spirit and your vibrance. So don’t give up! Broken crayons still color!
May God bless You and Lift You Up!
