Broken

Dictionary.com defines broken as reduce to pieces or fragments. I am very much a broken soul. The world has swallowed me up and spit me out broken and shattered. It’s sad that I allowed the world to do this to me. I am whole thanks to leaning on God. Without Him, I would not be able to pick up the pieces and walk around. Some people believe that Christians have nice, perfect lives. Man, I wish this was true sometimes. But the truth is, without being broken, I would have no need for the Lord. I want to lean on Him and walk with Him daily.

 I recently read a book called The Broken Way by Ann Voskamp. It reminded me of this. We are all broken. We have to come to the Lord with our brokenness and he makes us whole. She encourages you to move through the hurt and come out on the other side. She experienced a tragedy in her childhood, watching her sister getting killed right in front of her by being run over.

Ann knows broken and how it was like to live through the brokenness and come out the other side. She reminds you so eloquently that God is with you every step of the way and no matter what, He will not leave you.

Her first book One Thousand Gifts was about eucharisteo which is the discovery of letting God love you and counting all the ways. That was the first dare, this is about the second dare, which is daring you to let all the not-enough there in your open hands- let it be broken into more than enough? A dare to let all the brokenness be made into abundance. (pg 31)
