“Broken Together”

I was listening to the radio today, and this song came on. It has always sounded so pretty, but for the first time I listened to the words. It is so relevant to what has been such a theme for me in the past couple of years. I am realizing that being broken is not all bad as long as you have someone to walk with you in that brokenness. I have felt for so long that I had to do it all alone. That there was no one really to walk with me in my pain, in my need. I know I have God, I know this beyond a doubt, but the need for community, for companionship is strong. The desire for others to step into the messiness with you and help you to glue all the broken pieces back together is undeniable. Maybe all the pieces do not come back together perfectly, but the repairs make me unique and somehow stronger.

I have someone who is here for me. He wants to hold me together, to offer to spot me when I am afraid to do it alone. It is hard to let him, to trust he won’t drop me. To believe he will reach in at the right moment and give me the support I need. The amazing thing is, that he wants to try, and even more amazing is that I want him to try too. I want to let him spot me. I want him to even knowing sometimes he is going to miss me and I will fall. The best part is, he will be there to pick me up and dust me off when I do.

This one is for you…
