I've been broken. By abuse. By neglect. By evil. By life.

Broken is a terrible, hard way to live. Shattered. Disconnected. Incomplete.

Broken is how we all live, though. It's not just me. Not just the legacy of abuse. Broken is the legacy of our humanity.

The beauty in broken is the promise we've been given. 

His broken bones were healed, and he lives again. He walked into death and came out into full and complete life. Fully healed. 

And that is his promise to me -- to all of us. Walk into his death and be reborn. 

Healed. 
Strong. 
Victorious. 
Rich. 
Promoted. 
Connected. 
Perfect. 
Complete. 
Full.
