Brokenness and restoration

a time of restorationThis may be a more difficult concept. Let me give you an example: when we restore furniture, it involves several steps.

  1. We first have to disassemble the furniture
  2. We have to strip away all the years of wear and tear.
  3. Then we can add new materials and put it all back together.

Perhaps this does not sound like a very good experience to us, but the reality is that it is very rewarding as the true beauty and glory of the piece is brought out. Sometimes in the process of restoration there is the element of brokenness. Some things must go but most things stay. This is something we must embrace and not reject as God is doing something wonderful.
