KINTSUKUROI

Kintsukuroi is a very interesting word that means “to repair with gold.” It refers to “the art of repairing pottery with gold or silver lacquer and understanding that the piece is more beautiful for having been broken.” As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise.

God is in the business of repairing us with the intention that we come out more beautiful because we were once broken. Glory ! God doesn’t despise the honesty from a truly repentant heart. Instead, our surrender allows him and his grace to change us and make us whole. Somehow, God is able to make us more whole and more beautiful than we can ever imagine, because we live as testaments of his amazing grace.

In the words of the song by Tasha Cobbs “Here I am, God, Arms wide open, Pouring out my life, Gracefully broken

THIS IS AMAZING GRACE!
