“Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall.
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Could not put Humpty together again.”
There’s a fragility to every single human being that cannot be ignored. No matter how much we may wish . . . no matter how hard we try to shut off and shove down our emotions, heartbreak, and pain, there is no way we’re going to avoid all pain in this life. There are going to be times on our earthly journey where we’re going to be so shattered that no person or thing on this planet can put us back together. I’d even go so far as to say we were created that way.
But God . . .
Two of my favorite words of all time . . . but God . . .
The truth is God created us to do more than just merely exist with other humans. He created us to love and live in relationship with others, and He does want us to play an integral role in the lives of those around us. He never created us for isolation or aloneness, but He also created us in such a way that there is no way, no matter how hard we try or how good we are, that we can fully bring healing or completion or wholeness to one another. Only Jesus can do that for us.
So maybe you’re feeling broken and shattered today, and maybe “all the King’s horses and all the King’s men”, despite their very best attempts, can not put you back together, but rest assured there is a King that not only can but will if only you’ll ask. On the cusp of a new year, I encourage you not to do this alone. Not to face another day, hour, or minute without Jesus. It’s not complicated. All you have to do is simply ask Jesus to be your Lord and Savior . . . to forgive your sins and be the One who puts you back together. I promise it is a decision you will never regret.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” John 3:16-17
