Mending Broken Things

Do you ever feel like things just aren't fitting together? Like maybe the cogs in the gears that make up your life are off a little bit? Sometimes I wake up with this feeling, although it's hard to describe and even harder to put my finger on what is causing it.

It's sort of like thinking you left the coffee pot turned on, but you can't get home to check it for several hours. There's just nothing like that feeling of peace when you finally make it through the door and see that it was indeed turned off.

I read something today that encouraged me and I thought it might encourage you too so I decided to share.

"So spacious is He, so roomy, that everything of God finds its proper place in Him without crowding. Not only that, but all the broken and dislocated pieces of the universe --- people and things, animals and atoms --- get properly fixed and fit together in vibrant harmonies, all because of His death, His blood poured down from the Cross."
-- Colossians 1:19-20 (The Message Bible)

Whenever I have those disjointed feelings I described above, it certainly gives me hope to know that I am part of that vibrant harmony. I hope you feel truly loved today. Happy Wednesday!
