The nursery rhyme that has a deeper meaning for me. Here is what it says,
“Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall;
All the King's horses
And all the King's men,
Couldn't put Humpty together again.”
There are times in all of our lives when we all are so broken that we are unsure if we will be whole again. When those times of great brokenness crashes into our lives we somehow look to what we can do or what others could do. We look to friends, family, money, different circumstances - we’re desperate! We look every where to repair our brokenness. The more we look to our own resources the pit we are in seems to get deeper.
In this state of brokenness we can easily not run to the only one who can put us back together again. We can find ourselves disappointed in God, hurt that he didn’t prevent it. Even when we pray there seems to be no answer, no comfort.
It’s great to have people love and support us but in these times our only real answer and hope is the God that is ever so near.
This state of brokenness opens a door for us to discover that we can actually have the presence of God in our lives continually. Let’s read how Isaiah puts it.
The idea is to have a spirit of brokenness that has created a spirit of humility. It is here where God choses to dwell.
Everyone has a Humpty Dumpty moment…
