I read the following quote on a card recently, “Time can heal a broken heart, but we have to surrender the pieces.” This spoke volumes to me. A simple sentence in a random card that I just happened to open.
Isn’t it ironic how fate just steps in at certain times and just gives us an answer we so desperately need, a word of encouragement to life our spirits, or a boost of confidence to get us back on our feet again?
I realized at that moment that I have never surrendered the pieces to my broken heart. Instead I have held them…refusing to toss them aside. The pieces have cluttered my mind, and clouded my emotions long enough. They have kept me from healing.
As I sit here with the pieces cupped in my trembling hands, I now feel ready to hand them over to my Maker and Creator.
It is time to surrender the pieces…
Today I am thankful that a blessing can be found in a simple sentence.
