Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live. Thank you for deciding to stop by to visit with me. I am honored by your presence. Over the past 2 articles Traumatic Brain Injury and Learning to Love and Accept Myself and Traumatic Brain Injury and Finding the Freedom to be Myself. I have spoken to issues that have involved brokenness. My process and my experience brought me to a place of brokenness. For this I am grateful.
My brokenness motivated me to ask for help and look for solutions. During my process I experienced anguish. I felt overwhelmed, insecure and inadequate. Consequently I had a hard time seeing the light at the end of the proverbial tunnel. During these times I not only thought that I made mistakes, but I felt like a mistake. In my brokenness, I felt like someone all dressed up with no where to go. In my brokenness, I felt like no one wanted what I had to give and thus my life did not really matter.
In my anguish I had a hard time seeing the light at the end of the proverbial tunnel. My anguish motivated me to look for answers and solutions lest I die.
In the midst of my quest for clarity I heard a parable that gave me hope. In the midst of my quest for clarity I found answers and solutions. In May of 2007 I wrote an article to share a parable. In July of 2009 I wrote a series addressing the parable. At this time I feel led to reprint the series to share what I have learned through my brokenness. My hope is that as you read through this series you will the find courage — to ask for help and look for solutions — when you are feeling broken and unable to see the light at the end of your proverbial tunnel.
And now for Part 1 of the series.
Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live. I am happy to see that you decided to stop by to visit with me. I am honored by your presence. Earlier this evening I felt led to share the parable of the cracked pot with a group of my friends. The message of the cracked pot appeared to have a profound impact on several of my friends.
I am not sure who is the author of the parable of the cracked pot, however to the author I would like to say thank you. You are a very wise person.
Because the message of the parable is so very powerful I decided to share the parable of the cracked pot with you.
May you be encouraged to just be … yourself.
Please read Part 2 for context. Thank you.
