A little Heart to Heart Talk.
Our lives are full of Brokenness
- Broken relationships
- Broken promises
- Broken expectations
- Broken dreams
- Broken hearts
Effects of Brokenness:
Experiencing the aftermath of Brokenness is extremely difficult. Period. Full stop.
But, nothing is more painful that refusing to let go of the pain. There comes a time when you have to stop beating yourself up over other people’s choices. God didn’t create us to live depressed, defeated, guilty, ashamed, or feeling unworthy.
You are a child of a King named Jesus, and your REFUSAL to pick yourself up after experiencing a bout of broken promises or expectations makes you a VICTIM. A victim mentality doesn’t motivate you to wear your crown. Now tell me who’s side are you leaning on? A child of a King or a Victim of Satan’s plots and devices?
Satan will do ANYTHING to keep you unhappy and disgruntled. And, Jesus will do ANYTHING to keep you hopeful, encouraged and reenergized.
Brokenness takes on a life of its own. The fact you were broken-hearted means that you once cared deeply. David the psalmist said, ‘A broken spirit dries up the bones.’
So how are you going to prepare yourself when bad things happen to you? It’s good to remember that your mind plays a key role in putting things into its proper perspective.
The good news is that the Bible says:
The LORD is close to the brokenhearted, He rescues those who are crushed in spirit (Psalms 34:18)
God breaks the bars of your yoke and enables you to walk with your head held high ( Leviticus 26:13)
God is your partner in the brokenhearted seasons of your life. You cannot do Life without God’s help.
God remains consistent and He is never moody. He remains the same – He always does us good. It’s UNFAIR to blame God for other people’s choices even if they directly affects your life. But, certainly God can help you recover everything from that which was lost in the aftermath of broken relationships, broken expectations, broken dreams, broken promises, and a broken heart. It’s a daily process.
Read this summery below and trust God to do the same for you:
- “David and the other men in his army cried loudly until they were too weak to cry anymore.
- All the men in the army were sad and angry because their sons and daughters were taken as prisoners.
- The men were talking about killing David with stones.
- This upset David very much
- But he found strength in the Lord his God….(My Aha Moment)
- Then David prayed to the Lord. “Should I chase the people who took our families? Will I catch them?” … (You should have a little chat with God)
- The Lord answered, “Chase them. You will catch them, and you will save your families.”…. ( God is fighting for us, pushing back the darkness)
- David got back everything the Amalekites had taken, including his two wives….(Watch my God in action)
- Nothing was missing…..(Read this over again)
- They found all the children and old people, all their sons and daughters, and all their valuables. (HELLO )
- They got back everything the Amalekites had taken. David brought everything back.” (Plot Change. The End)
