Fragility is the quality of being easily broken or damaged. Fragility is also the quality of being delicate or vulnerable. Osteoporosis is characterized by bone fragility. An egg or a baby bird’s wings are fragile. Your heart, mind and relationships can be fragile, physically, mentally, and emotionally. Your soul and your life are FRAGILE. There are many things in this world that are fragile, but we must remember that God is faithful, and He knows our
fragilities. 1 Peter 1: 24 reads, “For all flesh is like grass, and all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower fall off: but the word of the Lord endureth forever.”
It is also written in 2 Thessalonians 3:3 that “The Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen and protect you from the evil one.” It is great to know that even when we are at our weakest point, God is there, ready to pick us up and place us where we need to be. Do you remember that God said that he would not leave us nor forsake us? Is your word your bond? I am glad to know that God stands on his word and is gracious and overlooks my faults. It is also good to know that as written in 2 Timothy 2:13, even “If we are faithless, He remains faithful for He cannot deny Himself.”
Have you ever broken a piece of china and it shattered into what you thought were a million little pieces? No matter how you tried to glue it back together, the shards never quite matched up. Well, sometimes life can feel like a million little pieces, all broken up. You can be depressed, heart-broken, filled with sickness, with nowhere to turn. Well, I am here to tell you there is someone who can mend your brokenness and put every little shard of your life back together. Some call Him the Potter, some call Him Jehovah Jirah (my provider), or Jehovah Shalom (the Prince of Peace). I simply call him Jesus, the Great I am. Get to know Him so that in times of trouble, you will know who to call, when you are feeling fragile, vulnerable, or weak. He is waiting!
