Have you ever had a toy that you did not want to share? Well I have, and as a teacher of young children I have witnessed many fights over sharing a special toy. I have seen children get pretty violent over items during play. Yes. I did say violent. Especially in a tug of war. Here is how it works
A child is in possession of a toy another child wishes to have, so they approach to try to take the toy, except the other child has a grip so tight that they pull it apart, only to respond with complete shock when the arm is ripped from the doll or wheel from the truck.
Now here is where you step in…Lol! They both look up at you crying and screaming to the top of their voices shouting, “he/she broke my toy!” 🙂 Then they ask, “can you fix it” right before pulling one last time, and tearing off another part. 🙂
Neither of them is even willing to admit that they were partakers in the destruction of their own toy. 🙂 So you take the toy into your hands and try to repair it. Sometimes you are able to repair it and return it back to its true owner, and at other times you’re not. The damage is done and the consequences are brutal.
Well friend so it is in life. There are times we just can’t fix the broken. We have to give it to God and walk away! Only God can fix what is broken in our lives, most times when we try to fix it, we only rip apart more pieces, but if we put our lives in his hand he will mend what is broken, and put our pieces back together again. Why don’t you let him fix your broken pieces. He can do it! Try him and find out for yourself. Amen 🙂
