Beautiful Hole


A few months ago one of the pastor's at our church gave a message on "Presence: The Skill of Being There". This is the first of two post highlighting his message. 

When we are wounded, we are left with a gapping hole. We may feel like the hole is ugly and embarrassing. People may walk with a wide gerth around us or point and whisper. There are people in your life who will come at your hole with hammer.  They will say truly insensitive things that make the hole bigger.  Thankfully, there are people who have themselves grieved who will come with supplies to help your hole heal.  But God is going to make the hole beautiful. And...you have the hole because He is going to receive glory out of it. So, as you travel the road of grief, don't be embarrassed.  God is turning what the world calls ugly into beauty.

I love the imagery of the hole. 

Romans 8:28
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
