Broken and Fixed

I was in the store last night and there was a lady and two kids behind me in the LONG line. One was a big kid, one was a toddler. The bigger one had a pack of glow sticks and the baby was screaming for them so the Mom opened the pack and gave him one, which stopped his tears. He walked around with it smiling, but then the bigger boy took it and the baby started screaming again. Just as the Mom was about to fuss at the older child, he bent the glow stick and handed it back to the baby. As we walked outside at the same time, the baby noticed that the stick was now glowing and his brother said “I had to break it so you could get the full effect from it.” I almost ran because l could hear God saying to me, “I had to break you too, to show you why I created you. You had to go through it so you could fulfill your purpose.” That little baby was happy just swinging that “unbroken” glow sticks around in the air because he didn’t understand what it was created to do which was “glow”. There are some people who will be content just “being” but some of us that God has chosen, we have to be “broken”. We have to get sick (physically…emotionally). We have to lose a job. We go through divorce. We have to bury our spouse, parents, best friend, or siblings our child because, in those moments of desperation, God is breaking us, but when the breaking is done, we will then be able to see the reason for which we were created.
I love you just the way you are is a lie!

I love you just the way you are is a lie! If you really love someone like you say you do then you should accept them faults and all. I know a few people who says that about their partner but yet they’re disappointed when their other half doesn’t meet up to their standards, such as the husband is mad because his wife doesn’t clean and organize the house how he wants her to, or he doesn’t like how her cooking taste or how she fixes her hair, etc. It’s the small little things that you should learn to appreciate about your love one. They might not clean or organize the house the way you want them to but hey at least they’re trying. You might not like the way they cook but at least they tried.. maybe offer to help them cook once in a while. So instead of seeing the bad learn to appreciate the small little things. There is a lot bigger problems in the world to even worry about the little ones. Instead of getting mad for mistakes learn to forgive and just brush it off, no one is perfect people makes mistakes. Let those mistakes be a lesson learn. It’s a lot easier to just let it go then for you to let go of harsh words that would hurt someone. If you love someone so much love them will all of you and you will see you will be happier in the long run.
