When was the last time you colored with a broken crayon? Just in case you may have forgotten what it was like, let me remind you. You may have to peel back the paper that covers the crayon to get a good use out of it. Sometimes it is harder to hold so it takes an extra effort. Sometimes we are like a broken crayon. God has to peel back what is covering our true colors in order to use us. He might even have to put forth an extra effort to hold us tightly. But ultimately, we produce a colorful picture when we let him use us. Don’t let your brokenness stop what you were created to do. He made you. He loves you. He can still use you!
