Give Me a Life of Brokenness

imageWhen we look at ours lives sometimes it’s easy to see a life of brokenness..

We say the system is broken.. our marriage is broken.. our kids our broken.. our church is broken.. our jobs our broken.. our relationship with family and friends our broken.. we go back to past relationships that are still broken..

Then their are those who live in a state of brokenness.. their lives have been altered by the death of a love one, they have been victimized, they suffered from a debilitating disease, they suffer from chronic depression and pain, they are hopeless because of their brokenness..

But as I sit along with many others in my state of brokenness.. some who will never admit they are broken..

I began to remember that God lives in brokenness.. I began to remember that Moses was broken.. but he lead the children of Israel out of Egypt.. I began to remember that David was broken.. but he was a remember as a man after Gods heart.. I began to remember that Job was broken.. but yet he was considered righteous by God.. I began to remember that Paul was broken.. but yet he wrote the majority of the New Testament.. I began to remember that Peter was broken.. but he went on to be a witness for Christ..

So no matter how broken you think you are.. remember that there is nothing to hard for God.. and I know we often ask why me.. I know I do.. and when I really wanted to feel sorry for myself.. I say this can’t be my life .. what did I do wrong.. Oh God why are you punishing me..

But God said I live in your brokenness.. in your brokenness it is then that I receive my glory.. in your brokenness I receive my praise.. It is in our brokenness that God longs to dwell.. remember Jesus said he came for the sick that the well didn’t need a doctor.. so when you feel all is lost  hold on.. and remember it is in our brokenness we find God.. 

Lord my God, I called to you for help, and you healed me. (Psalm 30:2) 

He heals the broken-hearted and binds up their wounds. (Psalm 147:3)

He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. (Revelation 21:4)

“He himself bore our sin” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness, by his wounds you have been healed”.
