"It was one of the worst days of my life," writes Clara Null of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma in THE CHRISTIAN READER Magazine. "The washing machine broke down, the telephone kept ringing, my head ached, and the mail carrier brought a bill I had no money to pay. Almost to the breaking point, I lifted my one-year-old into his highchair, leaned my head against the tray, and began to cry. Without a word, my son took his pacifier out of his mouth . . . and stuck it in mine." Some of you have been there. You understand.
It is breaking moments like these that we realize how badly we need God. It is often in our broken moments that we find rebirth in Jesus Christ.
Let's do something today to heal broken moments and lives as we offer God's hope and love in Jesus Christ.
He saved us, not because of any works of righteousness that we had done, but according to his mercy, through the water of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit.
Dear Lord, let us not lose it all when we are broken, but help us realize our great need for you. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
