curiously shaped

"your soul has a curious shape...it is a hollow made to fit a particular swelling in the infinite contours of divine substance." -C. S. Lewis

I might have just been one more to you. I imagine that I came into and out of your life with little to no long-term affect on you.

But to God, the offenses from you toward me were very personal to Him. To Him, I was unique. I was the one He went after, leaving the 99 behind. To Him, those nights behind locked doors and that hungry belly and broken mind was utterly personal. And to me, the ripples that you started when you first began casting stones into my pond are still in motion. They have left me stunted. They have shaped me incorrectly. I am left with a lifelong limp and all the “physical therapy” in the world won’t fix me.

The bad news ends there.

The good news also starts there.

What you never told me was that God is attracted to brokenness.
