It simply said these words, “I will dance with broken bones.”
It was as though she had written those words from her personal experience specifically to me.
When in fact, the original writer was King David in Psalm 51 and verse 8.
David was writing from his personal experience with people.
People can be cruel.
We know that.
Life can be messy.
We know that as well.
What do we do when people are cruel?
How do we respond when life gets messy?
What is left when our heart is broken?
We look to the One who understands cruelty, messiness and brokenness.
In fact, the Bible says Christ was broken for us, he was bruised on our behalf.
His life was taken so that ours might be given.
You may have no tears left to cry.
You may have asked God why so many times you wonder if He is even listening any longer?
Yet something within you comes alive at the very moment you feel dead inside.
It is God’s hope that motivates you to continue.
It is God’s love that you have experienced that causes you to respond in kindness in spite of someone’s cruel actions toward you.
It is King David’s reminder to us, through Linda, that we are to dance with broken bones.
Your broken bones will heal in time and will be stronger from your experience.
Keep your focus on the One who’s joy causes you to dance, even at times, with broken bones.
