The pain in our life is just another piece of it. When we can look at our lives that way, we begin to see them differently. We see the lessons we are being given, the challenges that help us spread our wings and grow, and the purpose that shines through us in a way it cannot do with anyone else. We each have this. We were each made to offer this world something, and in the process of living our purpose, we can show our beautiful brokenness without shame, because this, too, is a gift.
This is me reading the poem “Our Beautiful Brokenness” from Poiema.
