Picking Up the Broken Pieces

“Give ear, O Lord, unto my prayer;
And attend to the voice of my supplications.
In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee;
For thou wilt answer me.

Teach me thy way, O Lord;
I will walk in thy truth:
Unite my heart to fear thy name.

O turn unto me, and have mercy upon me;
Give thy strength unto thy servant…

I will praise thee, O Lord my God,
With all my heart:
And I will glorify thy name for evermore.

Psalm 86: 6-7, 11, 12, 16

When our lives are broken and we don’t know who to turn to, we should remember that God is there for us at all times.  No matter what we have done or not done should not keep us from asking for help.  It is comforting to know that God will find a way to rearrange our broken lives so that we can do his work.  We might not even know this is happening to us.

Dear God, I am broken.  I feel so empty.  I have nothing to offer but pieces of my life.  I pray that you pick them up and use them.  Help me to submit as you rearrange these pieces in a new way.  Thank you for the miracle you created from my shattered life.  Help me to accept my new life and use it the way you see best.  In Jesus’ name, I pray.
