Born without complete legs, Judy watched others have all the fun. As she wore her orthopedic shoes, she had no idea what God could do with her brokenness. As she coveted other kids' physical adeptness, their social calendars, and their seeming satisfaction in their own skin, she remained clueless that they indeed shared her condition - a missing "something" in their lives. It took decades before she realized the truth: * You can have long, strong legs but no one wants you on their team. * You can have intact, beautiful bodies but be unhappy with what you see in the mirror. * You can look perfectly whole but be filled with gaping holes. Each one of us is broken in some way. For some it's visible; for others it's hidden.. Life's pain seems unending. And yet in life's inevitable pain the unexpected can happen. It did for Judy. While she was concluding that life was passing her by, a full and fulfilling life was in the making. Through an invisible strength, a unique, anchored life was taking shape. His Majesty in Brokenness shares stories of Judy's life lived in intimate relationship with God, thanks to some everyday missing pieces - not just legs, but self-sufficiency, courage, and a social life. Could it be that the very absence of these ingredients provided the stage for God to perform the impossible? Whether you see Him or not, God has pitched His tent in that very wasteland. He says: Be astonished Wonder Because I am doing something in your days - you would not believe if you were told. Habakkuk 1:5 NASB Judy's prayer is that as you read her stories you will contemplate God's presence in your own life, His Majesty crafting the places of your brokenness into His unique masterpiece called YOU.
