What do you do when you feel your dreams are shattered? Your husband or wife wants a divorce, the death of a child, stock market crashes and you are now bankrupt, or you just keep getting hit with one punch after another in life. Jamie what does this topic have to do with this article? EVERYTHING…tragedy and brokeness happens to all of us. John 10:10 says the enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy. He is no respecter of persons. How do you take the thousand piece puzzle that is all over the floor and put it back together to reach your destiny after brokeness? You do it with patience and one piece at a time.
Our life is a big jigsaw puzzle waiting to be put together to be a beautiful picture. On one side of the puzzle you have depression, fear, failure, loss, poverty, sickness, and any other kind of negativity that takes place in our lives. On the other side of the puzzle is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Gal 5:22). God is the master at taking our broken pieces in life and making it a beautiful picture.
Brokeness is not something that is suppose to destroy us. I know when you’re in the middle of whatever it is that has caused your pain that seeing it as a blessing is the farthest thing from your mind. James 1:2-3 “Consider it pure joy my brothers, whenever you face many trails of many kinds because you will know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.” Joy is not happiness or being fake about what you are going through. Joy is having faith in the middle of your brokeness.
Sit down with any successful person and ask them where they grew the most. It was not on the mountain top. It was in that broken place. Something about a broken place that cause us to dig deep within ourselves to become an over comer. You are an OVER COMER!!! Push pass the brokeness and see it as a set up for you to win in life.
Brokeness is your Success!!
