Chocolate – Breaking is hard

Image

Wow. It’s been a month since I posted. I’ve been my broken wrist to heal and get some use back. This is my first day back at typing two-handed. It may not seem like a big deal, but it is. I lost total use of my left hand. It is my assist hand, and it couldn’t assist me in any way, shape or form for many weeks. I’m in my ninth week of physical therapy, and have regained some use, but not all – but ENOUGH to type two-handed again. Feels good.

Where are you in the process? The first part of any process is brokenness. My wrist was broken in three places. I broke this block up into many pieces – so I could melt it, temper it, then use it however I wanted.

If you feel like this block of chocolate, there is a God who comforts those who mourn. The chocolate tempering process is a lot like the metal refining process mentioned in the Bible. In other ways, we go through this process. There is no way around it. But God will bring us through it. It may take a while, but we’ll get there. Hopefully, it won’t be so long before I post again.

Brokenness hurts, but it never hurts forever, although we might think it will. Healing cannot occur until brokenness has done its work.

Have a blessed day, and know you’re not alone.

Cracked-Pot

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; let your light shine through your cracked pot. Ring the bells that still can ring, Forget your perfect offering, there is a crack in everything, That's how the light gets in and comes out.
