THE BROKENNESS WILL BLESS US
Many times we face life with visions of grandeur of what we believe will somehow unfold. And we look for it daily on the horizon of life like a blessing of pure, priceless gold. Yet, often out of nowhere....in the left field of life comes a chapter filled with heartache and sorrow. And it takes all our courage to walk on by faith through the crisis that fills our tomorrows. But these times of brokenness are not a mistake where God forgets us or somehow falls asleep. For they are the tools God uses to show us the promises He says He will keep. These times of tragedy, distress, and disappointment are the times we are forced to look up; When the God of the Universe lifts up our faces so we can drink from His merciful cup. These are the times God does the most work on the hearts of the ones called His own; When we let go of self-reliance in the wake of our weakness to grab onto the strength He has shown. Through times of great brokenness our hearts are fine-tuned for the song of testimony we send. And the brokenness doesn't break us... because God makes the way so we can say we are blessed in the end.
