Find Light in Our Brokenness: A Reflection

This week, we reflected on the life of Vincent van Gogh, an artist who poured his heart and struggles onto the canvas, creating beauty that continues to inspire us today. We, too, are called to share our light, not for personal gain, but to illuminate the world with the love of Christ.

Even when we feel broken and flawed, God’s grace can shine through us, touching the lives of those around us. Our limitations shouldn’t discourage us; instead, they can become an opportunity to experience the paradox of faith, where our weaknesses can be transformed into strengths. It is often in our brokenness that God’s light shines most brightly.

As Paul reminds us, we may face trials, but we are never truly defeated. By choosing to follow Christ and share in his sufferings, we become vessels of hope, beacons of God’s love in a world that desperately needs it.

Surrendering our self-centeredness allows God’s transformative power to work through us. For instance, letting go of arrogance and embracing humility can be as simple as listening to others without interrupting or being open to constructive criticism. In doing so, we find confidence in knowing that even in our weakness, God’s strength is made perfect.

Let us be like those cracked clay jars radiating the magnificent light of Christ. Let our light shine, not for our own glory, but to illuminate the path for others and draw them closer to the radiant love of God.
