Broken, But Still Usable

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. (2 Corenthians 5:17, NKJV)

"God can no longer use me. What I've done is just too horrible for Him to be able to ever use me again." Those were the heartbreaking words my friend heard while ministering to another friend. This lady had the picture in her mind that her sin, her mistake was just too much for God to be able to forgive. My friend reminded her of a crayon. Just because the crayon was broken into little pieces, it still colored the most beautiful picture. It could still be used. Ladies, that's true for us as well. It doesn't matter what you've done, God can still use you. You may have had an abortion. You may have had an affair. It doesn't matter. When you ask His forgiveness, you can still be used by Him. You may be broken, but, you're still usable.

Father, remind us all that no matter what we've done, You can still use us. I pray for each reader. Remind her that though she may be broken, You still want to use her. In Jesus name, Amen.


  1. I love the analogy of the crayon. That's beautiful. Love you!

  2. Jamie, thanks so much for visiting my blog today. Always fun to meet new folks online. You share an important message in this post. We're all broken in one way or another, aren't we? So glad God uses broken vessels!
