Lately I’ve been reflecting a lot on the idea of brokenness. When you can literally feel yourself in pieces. That moment when you’ve already hit the floor and your entire being is shattered…Have you ever felt like that?
To be broken, by definition, is not only to be fragmented or torn, but also incomplete or in a state of disarray or disordered. Typically something that (someone who) is broken is not in working order or does not functioning properly. But when I saw this image, it reminded me of God’s strength and more importantly that when we are at our wit’s in or complete weakness also known as “brokenness” that’s when God is made strong. Just like an egg, when we are broken we can/will be used.
In the midst of my brokenness is when my passion, vision, mission, and ministry are renewed. These are usually times when I have to strip away some people I thought were friends, various social media accounts or other frivolous time consuming habits to really refocus on how I spend my time. Beyond brokenness follows a time of extreme productivity.
So despite the hurt at the time, I am thankful for EVERY moment of Brokenness that I have had to endure!
How does your brokenness impact your mission?
