I just came across this quote… and oh, how it touched me so deeply. It applies to my life; broken into pieces so small I thought it could never be mended back together again. But by God's own strong and tender hands, he "is" molding it back together. I believe He will do this for anyone who is suffering from a broken heart who puts their faith in Him. God CAN change lives while molding the hurts and pains back together with his strong, gentle, hands. He can miraculously make us whole (and much better than we were before) by reaching deep into our soul, making our lives more beautiful, more fulfilling and more meaningful than we could have ever possibly imagined — I know… He has just done this for me, and this change "is" a beautiful thing!
"I have a theory: all people have had their hearts broken by actions of others as well as choices they have made themselves. By learning from those situations and being able to work through them and come out of them, we grow our character. By picking up the pieces of a broken life and putting them back together, a person cannot help but be changed. This change is a beautiful thing that results in a deeper understanding of others and their situations, and gives us a chance to share our experiences with them, showing them that there is a way-out – a light at the end of the tunnel. I believe that I have been not just broken, but put back together by God in a beautiful way — a way that I never could have imagined on my own — and I wanted to share that sense of hope and peace with whoever happens to read this…" ~ Molly Alexander
