A broken home decor piece bought by a couple in Hobby Lobby spoke a powerful message to thousands of people after its photo went viral online.
Broken Home Decor
When buying décor, we usually find the prettiest and the most appropriate ones for our homes. We usually discard those who have broken parts and imperfections and look for the perfect ones. But when this couple from Oklahoma was buying home décor, what caught their attention was the broken piece with the word “Grace” engraved on it. That piece of home décor spoke a powerful message about God’s grace to Jordan Raye and Collin Finch.
While they were looking around for some home decor in Hobby Lobby, Collin’s attention was caught by a broken one. He then asked his wife Jordan Raye what she thought about that broken tile. She then discarded the broken piece and looked for a better one.
“Collin saw this in Hobby Lobby while we were looking around. He was interested in it and asked me what I thought. I said ‘Well, it’s broken.’ It had been heavily discounted because it was broken so I started looking at the one that was as it should be,” Jordan Raye posted on her Facebook.
However, Collin heard the voice of God telling him a powerful message about grace as he was holding the broken home décor. He then shared it with his wife.
“No, that’s the point. We’re broken and then grace comes in period,” Collin said to her.
Upon checking out the item, the lady on the checkout counter discouraged them from buying the broken item. Inspired by what the message that item was speaking, Jordan Raye shared the message to the lady.
“My only response with my throat beginning to tighten was “Ya, so are we.” Broken people saved by the grace-filled sacrifice of a perfect Savior,” she added.
Jordan Raye shared the incident on her Facebook where thousands were inspired by the message. She then ended her Facebook post by quoting a Bible verse about grace.
“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9
