A kaleidoscope was my favorite toy when I was about eight or nine. I asked my mom how it made such beautiful designs. They were never the same. She told me about the colored rocks and the mirrors inside. When you turn it, the little stones fall in various ways. I told her I wanted to see them. She said, “Karen if you take it apart, it will be broken.” The last thing I heard my mom say was, “Your dad will not be able to fix it.”
My dad may not be able to fix my kaleidoscope. However, our heavenly Father can pick us up and transform our brokenness from the inside out. He not only repairs our brokenness, but he shines through us so people can see the beauty of Christ Jesus, our savior in us. Thank you, Melva, for posting today about a kaleidoscope; I love that my brokenness may be used to glorify God.
“So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image.”
2 Corinthians 3:18 NLT
Glory be to God; thank you, Jesus.
