Sweetly Broken....

In one way or another, we are all broken.

This doesn't mean we are weak and always falling apart.  It's that we all have pieces missing.  Either lost or stolen.

To be sweetly broken is to have come to the knowledge that God uses our brokenness, that with His love and His care, we can grow from here.

We awaken to the awareness that we have an even deeper need for him. 

Sweetly broken is that place where we let his love shine through, allowing it to warm our numb emotions and thaw out our  frozen heart.  It's where we learn to smile in the midst of pain.  Give him our praise and learn what it is to truly be thankful.

When nothing goes as planned, understanding has long since passed, God's providence is sought from a trusting gaze rather than a hand, reaching, extended; when we are sweetly broken.

This is the place of great discernment; soul and spirit can not be confused because only peace can be heard in one that is sweetly broken.

So often our hearts have been used, abused, and badly beaten.   Believe it or not, there is such a thing as healing.  The anger, bitterness, resentment, scorn and the need to get even must be surrendered. 

I know that sounds like a lot to ask; surrendering that which you do have a right to feel, but God desires to replace those feelings with a tangible measure of His love, His presences and His power.  Experiencing those three things far out weigh anything you could have hoped on receiving from the ones that have inflicted your pain. 

What He has to offer you, nothing else on earth can begin to compare too.

Sweetly broken is a place where you and I are safe to work through all of our issues, to tell God how we really feel with the understanding that at the end of the day, His thoughts and feelings have not changed. 

We are Loved. Wanted.  And this Love is Real!  Oh so much better than any fairytale you or I could have concocted!
