Kintsugi Jeans

Dear God,
I have a pair of what I call kintsugi jeans. They were starting to fall apart at the knee so I took some brown string and stitched them very obviously back together, not hiding the repair, but making a feature of it. A little like the Japanese art of Kintsugi, where gold is used to repair broken pottery. Making a feature of the fractures and cracks. I did it to remind me that you are always with us and in us, no matter how cracked and torn we may feel, shining out through the ragged places of our lives. Places that may not appear tidy or organised or sorted. But you are never afraid or unable to use these things. For this precious treasure that you have given to us, entrusted to us, this light and power that now shine relentlessly within us, is held in perishable containers, that is, in our weak and chaotic bodies. So everyone can see that our glorious power is from God and is not our own.
Thank you so much for this.
2 Corinthians 4 v 7
