We all walk around in our bubbles, living out acts which add up to make our lives. We bump into things and get bruises. The bubbles rarely protect us and when we are rejected, our bubbles burst, our guards crumble, and we are left deflated and exposed. It hurts. We cry in pain both physically and emotionally.
It is at these moments when we realize that in our lowest of lows, we can find strength. In our tumbled world with the broken and shattered pieces of our lives, we are exposed by the transparent facade of protection in the bubbles where we live. Through this exposure, we can find a joyous moment. We can find a moment that holds the strength to be humbled by our happenings and receive grace for what we have been given. Why? It is because we are loved.
It is hard when a friend within your world can be the one to burst your bubble. Nothing leaves you feeling more violated than to have a loved one turn around and walk away. Nothing can make you feel more heart broken than a friend who has turned heartless. Yet, here we are broken, walked out on, betrayed, burst, busted and crumbled in a shattered world. Even better, here we are in a “loved by the Almighty” puzzle piece solver. We are as a shattered piece in a stained glass window and our creator is ready to make us a beautiful masterpiece. Here we should be deeply loyal, never leaving the giver of life.
It is hard to find compassion in the midst of hurt. It is hard to find love in the midst of being humbled. It is hard to have silence, not speaking the last word while having a fight. In the midst of this, we must find solace in His grace, in His mercy, and in His love. He hung on a cross so someone else may have the last word because my life…will be never ending. It will be eternal. Though I am so undeserving of Heaven, Christ will make me to be in one piece, unscrambled and uncrumbled.
So, I am speechless. Silently, I consider this. I am surrounded with love. I am standing straight in the strength which is given to me and inspired not by “the last word” but by the Holy Word which matters far more than any worldly conversation.
John 6:68b “Lord, whom shall we go? YOU have the WORDs of eternal life.”
His word can speak to us every day; other’s words should matter little. Are you broken and crumbled? Has your bubble been burst? Have you been in an altercation which makes you want to have the last word? In the end, God has the final word and we can thank Him for that faithful promise which can change the way we live our lives and the way we behave.
