Sometimes I feel broken.
There are times I look at my life and see all the ways I fall short. Maybe it was my negative attitude or words that negatively affected someone else.
There are so many ways to feel broken- physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually. In the middle of our brokenness, it’s easy to agonize over whether or not we can ever be acceptable to God or be used by Him during our brokenness. I know I struggle with this sometimes.
During this crazy beautiful health journey, God has taught me a valuable lesson about being broken.
Our brokenness is a gift. A gift? Yes, a gift because our brokenness connects us to other people walking through their own brokenness. A gift because our brokenness brings us closer to God. It is during our brokenness that God makes us whole.
Sharing our brokenness brings meaning and healing to our crazy beautiful journey.
Blessings happen during the brokenness. As I have shared my health journey with others, people have reached out to me and shared how my journey has helped them walk through their own crazy beautiful journey. It has been a blessing to see God move through my brokenness.
Being broken is a gift, because through our brokenness we recognize our need for God. Because only through God can our broken life be made whole.
I am so grateful for the gift of being broken. During my brokenness God has continued to love me and use me in spite of my brokenness. What a gift.
My prayer for you is that during your brokenness, you will look to God and allow Him to use you during this time. I pray you will find the gift of brokenness as God puts your broken pieces back together. ~OC
