Broken A Thousand Times
I can relate! Oh how I can relate! I have been broken so many times during my walk with Jesus Christ. The woman you see today is not the woman that was 25 years ago or even 5 years ago. I’m most definitely not the young girl that was being abused, despised and mistreated. I’ve come a long way, baby!
Brokenness is not a bad thing. In fact, there is beauty in brokenness. You see, when we allow our loving Lord and Savior to break the things in us that are dulled, unfinished, unreadable, unusable by Him or that simply don’t fit, it means we get sharpened so the rest of the story can be written as it should be.
The details of everyone’s story were planned out long ago. The storyline was laid out long before the story ever began. Every page and every word, takes our story either toward or away from that plan and storyline.
Sometimes…ok, very often….the story needs editing and a re-write needs to be done. It’s necessary for the good of the story. For the good of our story. For the good of us. For the good of those around us.
Our Father God loves us so much that He’s more than willing to re-write the words that have been written in our souls by people and experiences in our life. We carry a lot of junk around, often more than we know. That is just a simple truth.
We should always be willing to be broken and sharpened so that our story gets written as it was intended to be by the author and finisher of our faith. Because like it or not, there are people reading that story. And that helps write their story.
Love & Blessings!
