Brokenness…something I am sure we have all experienced. And, I usually find that the more broken a person becomes, the more real their faith becomes when they hold fast to the Lord. And the deeper the faith, the more wisdom. As wisdom increases so does the ability to share the story of that brokenness. I know this from my own experience. And that story is shared with so many other broken hearts. Those broken hearts turn to Jesus for healing and redemption.
The plan for our brokenness is so much bigger than we can even imagine when we hand it all over to God.
I chose Rachel’s post, What if My Brokenness is Not About Me, as my feature this week because she shares this important truth from her own tragic story. I love how she gets right to the problem:
“So often, when we are forced to endure hardship, we have a tendency to make our brokenness all about us. Why me, God? Why did you let this happen? Where were you? Why didn’t you save me? What did I do to deserve this? Why her? Why him? Why us? Why now?
But maybe, just maybe, these are the wrong types of questions.”
Head on over to Rachel’s site and read her incredible post.
