This simple image provoked a lot of thought for me… The deep red, broken window, how clean the break looks, was it even a break? It also provokes thoughts like how the window might have cracked in the first place? Was it an act of nature or man? Was it done on this very day, and promptly prepped for repair? Or has it been broken for months slipping past the owner’s attention?
How often do we see the flaws in our life? Do we see cracks in our perfection and try to ignore them? We might even know that ignoring could result in a gaping hole but we still, at times, deny our imperfections at all costs. I want us to notice our flaws quickly- and make work of repair.
A window is often the home’s first line of defense.
Let’s give great thought to any cracks in our lives. To how or where we might be allowing an intrusion in our defense? Are we quick to replace or repair our imperfections…and to renew? Or, do we let ourselves carry on, not realizing that the small crack that seems harmless will most likely turn into a huge gaping hole?
It’s so risky to simply carry on with our weaknesses, it weakens our own defense.
Sometimes we even make light of our sins, or imperfections, as to show our belief that things are ‘just fine’. Do we do this to convince others of our clarity on how small the flaw is? Or, are we trying to convince ourself that the flaw is no big deal?
This has been a rather harsh post for me but there is a happy ending! A joyous journey to repair, renewal and wholeness. This journey is available for all who know, love and embrace the grace of Jesus, the work of the Almighty, and the guiding direction of the Holy Spirit.
With the new year comes thoughts of a clean slate, new starts, and hope for a year of growth and success.
I absolutely love helping others set goals, self-evaluate, and tackle life with gusto. I am good at it because of my years of nursing and leadership development. But this isn’t what helps transform the lives of those I work with.
It is the transforming power of the TRIUNE that makes all the difference.
