We love to cheer for the underdog and believe to our core that every life makes a difference … and we are right. There is no one God can’t use and no one whose brokenness is too broken for God. We know this is true for our friends when we want to encourage them. Yet, when it comes to the places of our innermost sense of shame and regret, we often wonder if it is really true that God can work all things together for good for those who love Him.

Angie Smith is one who was quick to encourage a friend but struggled to believe that God could truly make something spectacular out of her brokenness and disappointments. Responding to God’s leading to both break and reconstruct a simple pitcher, she reflected:

It was as though God were saying, “Here you are, Angie. You are mended. You are filled with my Spirit, and I am asking you to pour yourself out.”

The image of my life as a broken pitcher was beautiful to me, but at the same time, it was hard to look at all of the cracks. I ran my fingers along them and told Him I wish it had been different. How I wished I had always loved Him, always obeyed Him, always sought Him the way I should. I was mad at the imperfections, years wasted, gaping holes where it should be smooth. But God, my ever-gracious God, was gentle and yet convicting as He explained.

“My dearest Angie. How do you think the world has seen me? If it wasn’t for the cracks, I couldn’t seep out the way I do. I chose the pitcher. I chose you, just as you are.”

Mended takes listeners on a journey to show how faith lived in the regular events of daily life is all that it takes to be a part of creating God’s picture of redemption in their lives and those around them. Every life does make a difference—because of how He is magnified in the cracks.
