“Beauty from Brokenness”

It may be hard to believe, but God makes beauty from brokenness. Knowing this, trusting this, believing this about God, is often the first step toward forgiveness. Is there anyone you need to forgive? Life is painful. Often a person is attached to our pain. And when there’s another person involved, healing can be a lot harder. Whoever you blame for you pain, understanding this truth about God will free you from the burden of bitterness. May you find the faith to forgive, by putting your trust in God–who makes beauty from brokenness.
