Skulls. Dark. Eerie. Pain. We have all experienced at least one broken heart. Hurt beyond measure.
Pain that led to emptiness.
Unable to leave.
Hanging there … unable to get away from a broken heart.
That brokenness was a kind of crucifixion.
You were nailed.
Remember the darkness of the pain? The hurt? The endlessness of it all?
You had to wait in the empty place – had to wait to come back to life in the light later.
That pain draws us together on common ground. It makes us stand together as one who knows. It unites us, so we can shore each other up and live up to our calling in Christ.
You are set apart today.
You will stand with another in need.
‘“before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you” (Jeremiah 1:5 NIV)
