Are You Willing To Be Broken?

Brokenness is the work of God by which He strips us of self-sufficiency so that the character of Christ may shine through us...Now don't misunderstand; being broken doesn't necessarily mean experiencing some tragedy...Many people suffer tragedy without drawing closer to God or even acknowledging Him...Indeed, the same Sunshine that melts the butter hardens the clay...The issue in brokenness is not so much our circumstances but our response...What is God trying to teach us? True brokenness is when God blocks every exit we try to take and we come to see that He alone is our answer, we make a life changing discovery....And what's that? You ask. When God is all you have God is all you need! Bottom line: God's power is reserved for those who have been given up trying to do it in their own strength or to accomplish it for their own ends!

A world that celebrates success doesn't see value in broken things but God brings beauty out of brokenness. How many are willing to allow God to break them today?
