Redeeming The Cracks
When our self-image takes a hit and our mirror gets cracked, it is tempting to feel so fragmented that we stop functioning. If we do, then condemnation seeps into those cracks and tries to kill our relationship with our Father and tries to steal our sense of worth and tries to destroy our self-government. Condemnation is one of the most lethal weapons the devil uses because it carries a mixture of truth and lie that is particularly toxic. Condemnation’s first punch is usually true, like “You know you messed up. You’re guilty.” However, it’s second punch is a poisonous lie like, “There is no way out, no healing for a cracked mirror. There is no way to redeem value that was lost and no restoration of broken boundaries.” Those lies should make you want to spit.
