Together Again

“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.”

We look at Humpty Dumpty with a healthy dose of judgment, don’t we? What was he thinking? An egg sitting up on a wall like that? Ridiculous fellow. This is bound to end in tears. Got what he deserved, if you ask me.

However, we are exactly like Humpty Dumpty.

We are all just as fragile as that overconfident egg. We are all carelessly living right on the edge. We irresponsibly dangle our legs over the wall. We wave and whistle to those passing by, “Hey, look at me!” It is only a matter of time before we lose our balance and have our own great big fall. The fall will break us. We will be broken. Then what?

The king’s horses and the king’s men won’t be able to help, that’s for sure. Even “all” of them! I’m not sure what kind of help a horse was supposed to offer anyways. It just goes to show you that when you’re lying there all cracked to pieces on the pavement, you’ll call on anything and everything for help… even a horse! Well, Mr. Ed can’t help you and men can’t either.

Men can’t put you back together again.

It is only Jesus that can put Humpty together again. Jesus is the only One able put you back together again too.

“Heal me, LORD, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise.” – Jer. 17:14

I know this was a tad bit silly, but the truth remains: If you’ve fallen, Jesus can help you pick up all the pieces. If you’re broken, Jesus can get you back on your feet. If you’ll let Him.

“Behold, I will bring to it health and healing, and I will heal them; and I will reveal to them an abundance of peace and truth.” – Jer. 33:6



  1. I have always connected to and loved “Humpty Dumpty”, I was and am like him. Always trying to peice things together. But did you know there is a second verse to this well known nursery rhyme that always gives me hope? “Along came some children, with brushes and glue, and stuck humpty together, good as new!” Implying that our inner children can help us mend oursevles.
