It’s okay to be broken

IMG_5531.JPG

There are days when I wake up and God feels a million miles away. I feel a million miles away from God. There are days when I feel small and inconsequential. There are days when the shame that was lifted off of my shoulders a long time ago comes back to haunt me. There are days when I remember that I don’t have it all together. And in those days, God decides to show off. He sees the ruins of my soul and says He’s going to make them their home. He sees the cracks in my heart and says He’s going to shine through them. He sees my sin, my shortcomings, my faults – and He says, “My grace is enough. It’s okay to be broken. My power works best in weakness.”

It’s okay.
It’s okay to be broken, because He will make you whole. He’s going to take the broken pieces of your heart and make the most beautiful mosaic. He’s going to take the broken threads of your soul and He’s going to weave glory.
You don’t have to be perfect. You don’t have to have it all to be used by God.
It’s okay.

    Beautiful! It’s so good to remember to that our battle isn’t against flesh and blood but against the rulers, authorities, powers of this dark world, and spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Check out Ephesians 6 on those days! Thank you for sharing your heart. You are beautiful!

    Very timely in a World that looks for strength, power, control.

    ‘Brokenness’ is an uncomfortable & difficult place, but it is also the only real place that rebuilding can start.

    It is something that is preached about but rarely demonstrated & yet it is the key to what so many crave: the chance to find contentment, value & meaning.

    I’ve also been looking at the importance of vulnerability which is another key to freedom, joy & contentment, but that is another story 🙂

    Keep well.
