God is doing for us what we could never do for ourselves. He is picking up the pieces of our broken lives. We are being restored to a new place and with a new purpose. Restoration is going to take time. There are so many pieces that have been scattered and strewn about, but God never wastes a hurt. God is putting us back together, piece by piece.
There are going to be times when the process of restoration will seem too painful. We might even question if this process is worth the effort. These are the times we lean into God and look for support from our recovery groups. It’s in these moments we draw closer to God and allow ourselves to be loved by others while finding the strength to continue being restored.
God’s promise of restoration is being fulfilled at this very moment. He is picking up all our broken pieces. Everything that is broken is being made new. Over time, God is creating something different. The pieces of ourselves that once seemed so important, no longer have value. We are in a process of being restored, one broken and scattered piece at a time.
