“In the brokenness, defeat and sorrow
Is where lie all the deep lessons of my life.”This side of the resurrection
Nothing wants to be broken,
And yet everything must be broken.
To never break is to lie stagnant and eventually die.Things break.
I break now and again.
Picking up the pieces can be an act
Of profound faith.”
– Tobin Marsh, Servant Stories via inward/outward
Being broken is not the worst that can happen to us. Stagnation is one alternative I am not keen on. The way of brokenness is also the way of blessing. Blessings not according to our terms and conditions – but gifts which transcends our truncated view points.
