How can we go from Broken to Beautiful?

Kitsugi is the Art of Redemption. I'm currently working on a message for a Women's Tea Next week called Broken to Beautiful, and I am just amazed at How God takes so many things in our lives and repairs, restores, redeems and renews them. One of the things I'm going to share Next Thursday in the message is about a Japanese Fine Art. It's called Kintsugi.

Its a practice that is about 600 years old, and the Japanese masters take a broken vessel and repair it with gold, rather than discard it. This makes the vessel usable again, and rather than hide the scars, it accentuates them, embellishing them with gold, making the piece, in most cases, more valuable than before.

In our consumer society, we are far too quick to throw away and upgrade, far too lazy to maintain and repair.

Unfortunately, that is across the American spectrum in more areas of life than we care to admit. It has invaded, our lives, workplace, families, relationships and ultimately speaks of a huge inequity in our character as a nation, society and a people.

Fortunately for us, GOD is not so quick to cast off, throw away or trash even a shattered vessel, like me and you.

so many cracks, so many broken pieces. YET, He in vast love and desire to redeem what was lost, has the ability to work with our brokenness and make us not just like new, better than new.

Scars may remain, but they are merely a sign of Victory, a remnant of what was meant for evil that God in His Mercy and Grace was able to turn to good.

he promises to be close to the broken hearted, to bind up our wounds, and heal our hurts

Romans 8:28, 31 'And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His purpose, what shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

2 Cor 4:7-9, 16-18

But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

Regardless of how broken you are, there is HOPE, The master can take your pieces and renew you.
