A couple of years ago my son, his three daughters, my husband and I decided to take vacation together destination Ohio a long trip from Mississippi. I crawled in the back of his Tahoe with the three girls, my husband drove and our son stretched out in the other front seat. Everyone was excited and off we started. I had brought plenty of things for the girls and I to do but the one in the seat next to me wanted to selfies on my phone. Then she included me before long it seemed I had twisted every which way to get the best picture. When I finally decided to stretch my not so tall body it happened. I got my hand caught in my necklace and it broke (surprised right – I'm sure you thought it was going to be something very different). Not so softly I said "Oh no" as I grabbed the pieces. My oldest granddaughter turned around and wanted to know what happened. I told her and said it was really no big deal. She was not buying that, not after scream I let out. She knew it was my favorite necklace. It didn't take her long to think of a solution. She assured me it would be okay because Papaw could fix it. I was taken by her confidence in her Papaws' ability. She did not know the whole damage but she knew it didn't matter he could do it. She was ready to take it to him right then and there. I knew that was not to wise because if you remember I said he was driving and I knew the last thing he cared about at that moment was my broken necklace since we were not even out of Mississippi. She told him anyway and he said he would see later. Translated to me was he will fix it later. I put the pieces away and we continued our trip. When I stop and think about that moment how cool was her reaction. She saw a problem, knew how much I would want it fixed, she told me about the great fixer, her Papaw, and wanted me to turn it over to him and I would have no more problem. WOW
What a life lesson we can learn from her wisdom. I think most everyone I know has some kind of brokenness in their life, things of their own making or something that has been done to them. There have been people that have shared their brokenness with me. I knew they wanted it fixed. I saw their problem but I am saddened by the fact that I didn't quickly tell them about God being the great fixer nor did I ask them to turn their brokenness over to Him. Today I want to tell everyone that reads this that GOD IS THE GREAT FIXER UPPER. If you feel you are broken beyond repair don't give up. Take this moment to give it over to God. It is not always easy to give it to Him or to believe He can really fix the brokenness. What I do know is that He is patient, loving, full of compassion and extremely willing to fix your brokenness. He also will not step in and do it if He is not invited. He is a gentleman. I would challenge you to do as I have done and will do again: sit down, pretend He is in the chair next to you, and begin talking as to a good friend. Tell Him about the brokenness you have and the fact that you want it mended. You will discover He really cares and can heal. It might not happen overnight and it might. Some journeys to healing take longer than others but none the less it will happen if you hang in there. The great fixer upper will not disappoint you. My prayer for you today is that you will find healing for every part of your inner most being. "All things you ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive." Matthew 21:22 Have a great day taking your brokenness to God and allowing Him to mend it.
