Gather the Fragments

Reflect

In the multiplication of the loaves miracle Jesus fed the crowd, and when there was bread left over he instructed, “Gather the fragments.” Think of aspects of your past that can still be healed.


Pray

God, if I think about
those three words

they call forth
all the pieces 
of dreams I lost,
scattered behind me.
If I turn around and look
those shards still seem
to cut me.

But you teach me
that no matter my heartache
you hold it with me
for me.
When I let you gather all
that has been broken,
I feel how your peace
restores me,

making me whole.


Act

Today, envision giving Jesus your regrets and sorrows of the past. Imagine him gathering the fragments and cradling them so that your heart, in this present moment, can let go and sing and be free.
