Humpty Dumpty

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again

This isn’t your typical “happily ever after” bedtime fairytale. We teach this nursery rhyme to our children, but it’s really a tragic story. Humpty was broken and trusted the king’s horses and men to put him back together. He thought that surely, the king’s possessions could fix him, or maybe the king’s people would know just what to do. But both failed to meet his expectations.

This story could have had a different ending if Humpty had known where his trust should go. If he had looked to the one who really had the power—the king himself—he could have been put back together.

A lot of people in real life are broken, just like Humpty Dumpty was in this nursery rhyme. Some are trying to fix themselves by trusting in money, a job, knowledge, a relationship, or security. Some people place all of their hope in the King’s people—the Church—who end up letting them down, too.

Think about what might be holding your trust away from the One who deserves it. See outside the lines of the story you’re currently in. God is the Creator of the universe we live in—He has more than enough power to take care of every need you have, and can do more in a moment than you or I could do in a lifetime. He is bigger than we can even imagine! No matter what you are going through, God can handle it. All you have to do is place your trust in Him, and let Him do the rest.
