What's that all about?
Who drew it...and why?
Is one of my kids suffering from a broken heart?
Did one of their friends draw it when they were over visiting?
Was there some deep discussion going on and that drawing was the result?
Were they just goofing around?
Or, had they just watched a particular heart breaking episode of "One Tree Hill" and felt inspired?
At this writing, I have not asked anyone in the house about the chalkboard art. I've just been thinking about it.
Not only can this chalk drawing convey a particular emotion at a particular time over a particular hurt, but it also illustrates the deep life cry of all our hearts.
We all know something's not right in us...with us. We need fixing on the heart/life level.
Sin has broken our heart - our life - and only God can fix it. Only God can fix us. He sent Jesus to die in our place - to take the punishment for all that heart breaking/life breaking sin. That act alone is what fixes us for real.
He can fix us. Each one of us just needs to confess, "Fix me."
For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.
2 Corinthians 5:21New Living Translation
