We are all broken, as individuals and as a people. Lately, I have done some serious self-reflection and I have realized that I am so broken. I am ashamed of some of what I have done in my life. And many things I feel pain over. I have been learning how to bring things to the light. I’m learning this with a program called Celebrate Recovery at Watermark Community Church in Dallas. I feel so much freer and have made some great friends.
When I look around, I see so many broken people. People longing for something more than all this selfishness and materialism, but they don’t know what it is.
Now, when a person says or does something rude or mean towards me, it doesn’t upset me so much. I’ve learned to realize that it’s their brokenness and inner pain showing itself. It’s time we work on ourselves while extending grace to others around us.
Thank God I have photography. It has been a great outlet for me to express myself in ways I do not know how to verbalize. I love that I am able to show people what I see and how I see them.
I am just a man, as broken as you are, with my only hope in God.
