It’s tough some times

Hard things are happening. Not necessarily to me, but to friends. To people. Brokenness is happening. Really I have learned that brokenness is that moment when a person has no choice but to surrender and then Christ shines. He comes in and exposes. It leaves a person raw. Sometimes you can’t see the light. Yet down on your knees because you have no other place to go is where you draw strength from Yahweh (I AM) the most. It is an empowering place, to be on your knees.
My heart breaks for the struggles of people. For broken hearts. Broken relationships. Broken spirits. Yet Blessed is he who is meek, poor in spirit, broken. I think my heart breaks more for those plagued with apathy and complacency… or a life absent of brokenness. There is no greater thing than to be at the sheer mercy of God’ grace in a situation you have no control over. There is no greater thing than to be brutally and violently exposed to God’s good good love that is absolutely abundant. The best 5 months of my life spiritually have been the hardest 5 months of my life… yet I look back to them and smile because God was sovereign and He revealed Himself to me because I had no choice but to accept it and submit.
Hurting friends, take heart. Be encouraged. This pain is by His grace. Remember the cross. Identify with Jesus, and know He has overcome.
“In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials. That the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ.” 1 Peter 6,7

  1. These are tough and trying times for many. It will take your breath away and suppliment His. Breathe on us, Holy Spirit, breathe on us…

  2. “Finally, we reach the point where we begin to search for a new life, one that depends less on circumstances and more on the depth of our souls…We feel the need for something beyond ourselves, and it begins to dawn on us that reality may be more than we once thought it to be. We begin to perceive hints of the divine, and out longing grows. To our shock and bewilderment, we discover that there is a Being in the universe who, despite our brokenness and sin, loves us fiercely. In coming to the end of ourselves, we have come to the beginning of our true and deepest selves. We have found the One whose love gives shape to our being.” -Jerry Sittser
