  1. “True beauty shines brighter through brokenness”

    Thank you for this beutifup post Lynette.

    ” For when I am weak, then I am strong.”

    All good things,

  2. Wow, I needed a tender reminder of God’s intimacy with every broken piece of my heart. I feel like I sometimes say “good luck” to God instead of trusting Him…Especially when there are holes. I love that’s where He shines the brightest. Thank you.

  3. This is something we all need to hear, Lynette. Beautifully written. Let’s all shine for Christ, not despite our brokenness, but because of it!

  4. Wonderful post – I totally enjoyed reading this as I’m sitting here with my cup of coffee on a rainy morning. Thank you so much for sharing!
    I know I’ll remember this because of the picture you’ve painted with your words. 🙂

  5. Beautiful. It’s humbling to realize the way God uses brokenness. I can’t say that’s my favorite thing He uses to shape us, but looking at my life, brokenness has been one of my greatest teachers. I’ve also learned that brokenness is a bridge that connects us to other people. Like you said, “He sees worth in our brokenness” It makes me look at brokenness differently.

  6. Amazing post. I absolutley LOVE blog posts about the conversations that we, ORDINARY PEOPLE, have EVERY DAY with our God. Totally cool. Totally life changing. Totally God.

  7. Great ilustration we need to let Him shine in our life.
    Also great idea for our Wed ladies Bible Study,

  8. Lynette, I was amazed as I read your beautiful post, because I experienced this too! It is a powerful illustration, and God has used it profoundly in my life and in the lives of women I’ve shared it with. My “cracked pot” sits in my room daily reminding me of His sovereignty, love, and strength in my weakness. Thank you for your eloquent words. They express these truths so well.
    I wrote about my experience here:

  9. I love your words: “He sees worth in our brokenness.” Simply beautiful. I pray that I, too, can not only see worth in my own brokenness, but that He allows me to see worth in the brokenness of others!
