I Tumblr-ed upon an ancient art called “Kintsukuroi,” a Japanese word which means “to repair with gold.” Simply, the artist takes pottery that has been broken and fills in those gaps with gold or silver making the piece more beautiful that its original state.
So it is with frail humanity. Originally created for a purpose. Broken by the impact of our choices, desires and pride. Reassembled by the Master Artist. Filled in with the golden breath of Life. And now put on display as spiritual Kintsukuroi.
All of us are reminded of our brokenness day to day. Many chalk it up to simply living in a sinful world. Others to bad genes. But God sees the brokenness in your life and lacquers His love in the cracks of your life.
Even in brokenness, you are more beautiful because of you completeness in Christ.
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. – 2 Cor. 12:9
