Kintsukuroi

Someone dear to me sent some beautiful words in the Japanese language that are not found in English. This is one of the words:

"Kintsukuroi" is the art of repairing pottery with gold or silver joining the pieces and understanding that the piece is more beautiful for having been broken.

Love this Japanese concept!



Question:"Can the word "Kintsukuroi" also be applied to human life?

As normal human beings most of us know how the heart can be shattered by loss or betrayal, or disappointments. Hurt can reach deep into our soul level until we feel like we’ll never get over it. " However, hearts that have been broken, when submitted to God, can be repaired with His precious hands; for hearts that have been touched by the Savior’s love have a depth and beauty that is incomparable. The pottery of the soul is brought to a vivid intimacy, a brilliant richness of compassion that only becomes when a brokenness has been mended by the Potter’s hand. (I remember a quote I heard long ago:"Sorrow digs the well that joy can fill.")



Isaiah 64:8 (NIV)
Yet You, Lord, are our Father.
    We are the clay, you are the potter;
    we are all the work of your hand.


If you are hurting today, I urge you to seek out our Savior who was broken worse than any other has ever been. He understands our physical, mental and emotional pain and has the precious healing power that melts His golden compassion deep within to fill the hurting places. When we are restored by Him, there comes an intimacy unlike any other instilling a subtle resilience in the soul. It's almost as though the golden repair clay is melted right from Jesus' own heart.

                       He is the Potter; we are the clay. Allow Him to heal and restore you today.
