A Daily Devotion for Friday, May 27

Isaiah 66:2

“Has not my hand made all these things, and so they came into being?“ declares the Lord. “This is the one I esteem: he who is humble and contrite in spirit, and trembles at my word.”

Brokenness is not a bad thing, I guess, in the sense it implies a readiness to accept God and to follow Him. I have usually though of brokenness as something needing fixing. But this reading implies brokenness is an open heart to God. But, in all fairness, the passage doesn’t contain the words broken or brokenness. We are all broken, trying to get as close to God as our human-ness will allow. God sees my efforts, and this is all I can expect.

Holy One, hold me close. I am certainly broken. Amen
