Thrive Stories – Bhekumusa Msibi

Bhekumusa Msibi
Humpty dumpty sat on a wall. Humpty Dumpty had a great fall… This part was true in my life and hurt very much. For a long time I believe the second part will be my lot.  That No one will ever put those pieces together again.  I was right no body has. I tried my hardest to glue them together myself and failed miserably.

Then when I could not go on I gave up and just threw them all to God. I dared him to fix me and my situation. I dared him to put Humpty Dumpty’s pieces back again. I even told him how he should do it, being God and all.

God did not put the pieces together instead he built a new me, with a new personality, a new out look and a new hope. As a wonderful bonus he gave me Thrive Church. My church, my community, a place where I belong.  A place where the new me can grow. He gave me a purpose, to help create a place where people who are broken can be remade, given a new purpose and be allowed to grow.

I am not who I was. I am not who I am meant to be. I know that the new me is far better than I could have imagined. I know that my maker is not done with me yet. So I am grateful to this church for tolerating me and supporting me. As I slowly become the man I am suppose to be. Thank you!
