broken

This is a picture of a sculpture I created 5 years ago (see 2009 post entitled "Struggle") When it fired, the image that's a self portrait exploded. I've had it sitting in a box since then desiring to rebuild/repair it. God has been drawing me closer to himself and this struggle of my holding onto the earth/world is no longer something I want to identify with. I thought it was interesting that the self portrait "me" exploded while the hand/arm of God remained intact. It reminds me to choose Him... every time.

WOW, This is awesome! You and the Holy Spirit joined forces to create this sculpture. I'm lovin that the human side of it (only) broke. Don't repair anything, it's perfect just like this!

I wanted to see it mended, but I have no say. God doesn't "mend", He makes everything right, better than it was before. While we wait. Through the devastation His arm remains intact, AND extended. Thank you for sharing this "broken" piece, and its story. - Shan Socha
