How many of you remember this old rhyme?
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall.
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king’s horse men, all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.
I have a reason for sharing this rhyme. It offers us something to consider. This rhyme fits so well with the struggles people endure. If you think about it, this rhyme speaks of brokenness and pain.
Humpty was sitting on a wall when he lost his balance. After he fell to the ground, he broke into pieces. His condition was beyond repair. The king’s men could do little for him.
I think many people can relate to this rhyme. Many people are facing challenges which knock them down and leave these people broken.
Many people cry out of their broken for help. They cry out for restoration and wholeness. These people want to pick up the pieces and make a fresh start.
If you have struggled with brokenness, you know how tough it is. You know what it’s like to seek restoration. Sometimes friends and family try to help, but they are like the king’s men. There is little they can do.
Jesus picks up the fallen and restores the broken. He gives hope when life seems hopeless and gives
restoration and renewal.
Restoration is available for brokenness. Jesus invites the broken to call on him. He will heal and give restoration.
