The Gift of Brokenness
MONDAYS WITH KERRI
An early gift from Unfettered Ministries...On this Christmas 2018 we want to give you the gift of brokenness. BROKENNESS? YOU MAY CRY…THAT’S A TERRIBLE GIFT. But we want to encourage you that brokenness is a gift that comes to us when we finally stop fighting the discipline, training, and the loneliness He calls us to. We are blessed when we surrender to the process of brokenness. It is the vehicle through which we can really get to know Him. Through it we learn one of the most incredible character traits of The One who created us. Everything about Him is a pursuer. He never stops pursuing our hearts. He wants all of us and, as Song of Solomon attests, He will not relent until He has it all. We are his Signet Ring, we are His bride. He is calling us to Himself, asking that we choose His will and finish the race before us. And, when we do, He reveals Himself brilliantly through our brokenness.
“God uses broken things.
It takes broken soil to produce a crop,
broken clouds to give rain,
broken grain to give bread,
broken bread to give strength.
It is the broken alabaster box that gives forth perfume.
It is Peter, weeping bitterly, who returns to greater power than ever.”
– Vance Havner
So, this Christmas 2018 we pray you receive the beautiful and life transforming gift of brokenness. All for His Glory and His Kingdom purposes.
