Brokenness….

Today we spent time looking at the lesson on My Journey with Brokenness. It was a fascinating study and gave me much to reflect on….

When I think of brokenness I find myself wondering what I might have to offer to my community in my brokenness….

I would like to give you a few thoughts to ponder this week….

God’s perspective on brokenness:

Broken soil produces a crop…

Broken clouds give rain…

Broken bread strengthens and nourishes us…

Crushed grapes give wine…

A broken alabaster box releases a sweet fragrance….

I wonder what comes to mind for you and if you can identify a time you have been broken. I believe it is in our brokenness that we seek and need God most. For when we are self-sufficient often our need for God is diminished. I know that I often find ways to avoid living with a broken and contrite heart and yet it is what I sing in worship about and pray for God to do. This week I am committed to inviting and embracing my brokenness, trusting and believing that God will use my broken and contrite heart for His glory!
