One of the things I enjoy is decorating new living spaces.  Unique pieces of art, paintings ect. really catch my eye.  I noticed in my recent art search that there is a sector of artist that is doing a lot with broken glass.  There are some amazing wall hangings, picture frames etc. in the market place made entirely of broken glass.

It is not too late!  Regardless of your failures, regardless of your losses, regardless of your age or education; it is not too late to fulfill the destiny the Lord intended for your life.

When I have faced tough times in my life, Psalm 147:3 “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds,” has been one of the most comforting.  The Psalm reminded me the Lord knows that things have not worked out and that many people are broken, but He is there to heal us.

As we look back over the broken experiences of our lives, if we are wise, those situations and circumstances can serve as an instruction manual that can position us toward our destiny. The good times and those difficult times prepare us and position us where we need to be, even if we don’t realize it at the time.  So often when we are praying for something and it doesn’t work out, we feel sad or upset.  But often when looking back, we realize that had it worked out, we may not have gotten to where we needed to be.

Just as artists are creating masterpieces from broken glass, every piece of our experience is a piece that makes up a total you.

You are a beautiful masterpiece comprised of many valuable pieces.  Use them all, your dream is waiting for you to get there!
