Life can brake us. Sometimes we can put ourselves back together – just have to pick up the pieces and reassemble ourselves. If only it were that easy every time. But, many times the blows hit us so hard that pieces of us become scattered and shattered everywhere.  We don’t know where to begin to look for the tiny pieces of ourselves or even how to mend ourselves back together. So, when the task becomes too hard, we accept the modified versions of ourselves. The pieces of our confidence that were lost now morphs our personalities into insecure and fragile. The big stature we used to possess is now downsized to a smaller version to compensate for all the missing pieces so the gaping holes won’t be as noticeable. And, the once courageous version of ourselves is now timidly backed into a corner to stay out of harms way…We’ve lost so much of ourselves that we don’t believe we’ll survive another blow.

 

Although I used the pronoun “we,” as I’m sure many of you can relate, this was me. I remember being so broken that I left remnants of myself behind everywhere I went. I tried to keep myself together, but the shattered pieces we’re too small and too many to maintain. I sought relationships to try to help me fill the voids, but they were like tape. They filled the void momentarily, but when they were over, they ripped away more pieces of me. I remember crying to God that I couldn’t take another blow, another rejection, another failed relationship…I wouldn’t make it. Too much of me was lost. That’s when I gave what was left of me to Him.

 

When I surrendered, His gentle love began to put me back together. His love was the adhesive that actually held me together, and it was His love that filled the voids of those pieces that were missing. He replenished my confidence, which was lost so long that I didn’t remember it ever being apart of me. It was through this process that I really learned the meaning of “I found myself in You.”…and when He restored my identity, I was able to know who I am in Him.

 

I once was lost, but now I’m mended…**G.I.G.**
