Romans 8:26 And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us, with groanings that cannot be expressed in words.
In several situations right now I don’t understand what God is doing. I am frustrated and hurt by things happening in beloved ones’ lives and don’t know how to pray. It comforts me deeply to know that the Holy Spirit prays for me, with complete knowledge, understanding, and wisdom. And with empathy for the pain and confusion I feel. He groans for us. With us. Our brokenness does not frighten or intimidate him.
Several years ago while working with incest victims I discovered the Japanese art of kintsugi, which repairs broken pottery with gold. What does this photo communicate to you? Please share your thoughts!
