I saw this quote in a magazine a few years ago and loved it. I frequently go back to it and reflect on it’s words when I’m going through a hard time so I thought I would share it with you guys.
“When suffering shatters the carefully kept vase that is our lives, God stoops to pick up the pieces. But he doesn’t put them back together as a restoration project patterned after our former selves. Instead, he sifts through the rubble and selects some of the shards as raw material for another project – a mosaic that tells the story of redemption.” ~ Ken Gire
