31 Days of Reflection Day 1 " Broken Eggs"

 In August 2015 my daughter's family and I were in a car accident. We all had minor injuries and we are healing well. Immediately after the accident, my grand daughter Jude began "rounding" things up that had been strewn about in the car. She carefully found everything and put it all in the diaper bag. She returned to the car to have one last look around and that is when her heart was broken. There in the backseat floorboard area she found the eggs her mother had just purchased. She began to sob and ran to her Daddy and said "Oh Daddy the eggs are broken!!"  He reassured her that it was OK and they would be taken care of. She continued to sob and replied" but they can not be fixed daddy!

       I thought about this many times over the next few days. We try to gather ourselves and fix our problems, but we are broken eggs needing repair, we can not fix ourselves. Abba Father wants us to bring everything that is broken in our lives: our hurts our heartaches and our grieving. The LORD is close to the brokenhearted, and he delivers those whose spirit has been crushed. (Psalms 34:18 ISV)
 He is the only one that can heal us. Here we are Lord, we can not fix our hearts but you can. We need to be completely surrendered to Him so that He can work through all He has purposed for us. 

At the same time the Spirit also helps us in our weakness, because we don't know how to pray for what we need. But the Spirit intercedes along with our groans that cannot be expressed in words. The one who searches our hearts knows what the Spirit has in mind. The Spirit intercedes for God's people the way God wants him to. We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God-those whom he has called according to his plan.
(Romans 8:26-28 GW)
