When stress and tension begin to feel overwhelming, we resort to habits that have been used as crutches. Especially, when it comes to matters of the heart.
When our hearts have been deserted and left to have a faint beat, we go back to our coping strategies. These are basically habits. We resort to not caring about what we say or do to innocent bystanders, who are left to manage the wrath of our pain, of which they know absolutely nothing about nor had anything to do with.
On today, do not hold yourself hostage by the fear of brokenness. There is actually beauty in this phase of life- there is beauty in your brokenness. Would you like to know why?
Because you are at a place in life, where you can settle into stillness.
“Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” Psalms 46:10 NKJV
Now, you can truly fall into the hands of Jesus, as He performs heart surgery, rendering your pieces fully functional again as one new whole being.
“Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’ Isaiah 41:10 NKJV
It is not only okay to be broken, but it is beautiful. It is a place of recovery and a place where you can witness the hand of the Lord mending the pieces back together. You’ll be able to witness that it was no one but God, who saved you.
“He heals the brokenhearted And binds up their wounds.” Psalms 147:3 NKJV
