DIY crafts often have a round in social media. One such clip shows a bauble, meant for decoration, falling down and breaking into pieces.
Watching with few imaginations of how the curator could work on it, I observed that the broken pieces were taken, and crushed further into tiny particles.
To my surprise, he took a clear spherical membrane, glued it inside and sprinkled all those tiny pieces inside. Stuck inside that transparent sphere, it appeared like how it was before and now more glimmering and radiant.
We can delve into such trivial things to extract insights of life. You see that the bauble is a static object, but it fell down and broke.
It may be of any reason, either an external force as air or the curator himself might have accidentally dropped it. But it really reappeared as a master-piece surpassing all other imaginations about it.
The more it was crushed, the more it became glittery. Earlier it was fragile, but now it had a membrane that cannot be broken even if it falls down again. It has got a different arrangement after it fell down and reformed.
Many a time, we would have felt down inside. This happens, as we always tend to connect us with fellow men or other people we see, read or hear. However, everyone in this world doesn’t lead the same life.
As the heavenly bodies have their own orbits, we have our own unique way of life. We instinctively connect our lives with someone else’s and lose focus or try to change from what we actually are that makes us feel down or defeated.
As the bauble, you still have a life after a fall. We often hear people advising, “everything lies in your hands and you can set things right” but, there are times where we are dumbstruck knowing not what to do next.
We resemble that lifeless bauble during some tough situations. Men and women continue to live with that broken inner-self, seem living but dead.
Few end their lives at this phase, due to the occupation and magnification of the problem, blacking out the next chapter beyond that situation. Some others get into addictions for momentary relief or to become numb to the bitterness that is hurting inside.
During such circumstances, we need someone to hear our cry or a shoulder to lean and share our agony. Someone, as a curator for the bauble, to revive us back during such lifeless situations.
Inexplicable are certain things that could hardly be shared, even with a close friend but can be shared to Jesus. Yes, Jesus Christ takes the role of a friend whom you can trust.
Most importantly He understands our pain as He came to earth to experience human life. There are many testimonials in the scripture, that He is a God who heard desperate cries and even inexpressible pain.
As the curator, who changed the broken bauble into a showy trinket, Lord Jesus can definitely turn your broken pieces into a masterpiece.
The scripture says, “But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong” (1 Corinthians 1:27).
Now, even if you are weak, Jesus Christ can still help you. The Bible says, “A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out. In faithfulness he will bring forth justice;”(Isaiah 42:3)
You have to believe that you are here on this earth with a purpose. Whenever this world rejects you, remember God has chosen you to manifest his glory. When a lifeless bauble has received such a transformation, you can certainly be encouraged that God can transform your situation upside down.
The same bauble, that had a possibility of being thrown as debris, got a chance to be hung as an ornament on the X-Mas tree. Be cheerful that you are going to be favoured. Be happy that you are still alive leaping above all perils to achieve great things.
This Christmas season that proclaims the birth of Saviour Jesus, just open your heart to Him and He will turn your sorrows into joy. He is a brilliant counsellor who can counsel(answer) you and guide you to see wondrous things.
“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6)
Wish you all a Merry Christmas!
