Find Out How To Put Back Together A Broken Life

Speaker:

A young woman in prison wrote me the following story:

My life was like a bottle. I always thought I was going to be something special. Maybe I’d be used to hold some costly medicine, or I might be used as a fine vase on some rich person’s table. But I ended up just a plain green bottle sent down a conveyor belt and filled with cheap wine.

I was packed with a bunch of other bottles and shipped to a big city, where I sat on a dark, dusty shelf for a long time. Then something even worse happened. An old wino pulled me off the shelf and carried me out back into a dark alley. Some of his drinking buddies met him there and they all passed me around and finished me off. Finally, that old wino staggered to his feet, drew back and heaved me into a brick wall, smashing me to pieces.

For years I lay there in that alley, so shattered that I knew there was no way the pieces of my life could ever come back together.

Then one day someone came towards me—someone who actually kneeled down in that dirty, smelly alley and began sifting through all those broken pieces.  How He did it, I don’t know, but that Man found all my shattered pieces and one by one He pieced me back together. It’s been two years and six months since He found me in that alley and He has been polishing away the cracks ever since.

The same Man who sought me out can make you whole. His name is Jesus, and He can piece anyone’s life together, like He did for me. The Bible says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!” (2 Corinthians 5:17). Don’t stay in your broken condition. Call on Him today and let Him put your life together again.
