Life is always full of hardships and obstacles that can eventually bring us to a moment of brokenness. I have been through many experiences in my life where I have felt broken to the ground with feelings of fear and doubt in my mind. I’m sure many of us has experienced this in our lives, but as much as we see brokenness as a negative part in our life, it can actually have a positive effect to our lives if we use our brokenness to be closer to God.
During times of brokenness, you are at a peak of a humble and sensitive state. Most of us are closest to God during our times of troubles and we are always open to hearing his word (although we should always be close to God during our good and bad times). Rejoice during your brokenness and use God as your source for strength. Experience his love and grace like you have never experienced it before. Sometimes we have to be broken before we can grow strong enough to blossom. It is never too late to get back up. Isaiah 43:18-19 says, “Forget the former things; do not dwell in the past. See I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” Never lose hope because God can make all things new upon your life. Use your brokenness to bring every area of your life under submission to him alone. Turn to God and surrender yourself and problems to him because he is the only one who is capable of bringing you peace in your life. Psalm 34:18 says, “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit“. Don’t be afraid during your times of brokenness because God is always near and there for you. God still loves you the same during your bad and good times. He will protect and guide you into where he wants you to be. Open your heart to God and allow him to bring you peace during your down times.
Never forget your times of brokenness because it will bring you strength to overcome obstacles that will come later throughout your life. Instead of allowing your down times to hurt you more, use it as a chance to grow more closer to God. Allow God to move into your heart and use this as an opportunity to strengthen your faith in God. You can experience God in a new way through your brokenness that good times cannot do for you. If you depend on God, he will turn your brokenness into happiness and peace. So remember, there is beauty in brokenness. The
