Sometimes a soul shatters all in one instant. A miscarriage. An accident. A break up.
But sometimes it breaks slowly. In little fragments over time. Unnoticeable slivers. Until one day you find its dust on everything you touch. A spirit flaking away. A frog boiled slowly.
I’ve known both kinds. You probably have, too.
So our souls are stitched together. Over and over again. And we’re all just a bunch of mended strands and threadbare patches.
Until we let His love and grace flow through the in between spaces. Making us whole.
Indeed there will still be pain. And heart-ache. And moments where we feel broken all over again. He never promised there wouldn’t be.
But when the Giver of Life is your In Between, it’s safe to let the pieces fall. Only to discover He’s been holding them all along.
