Blessed to be Broken

God's not finished with me yet!


on March 14, 2022

A friend sent me a quote today. The world is full of quotes and memes and advice. If only quotes could fix all our problems after we read them and let them sit in our souls for a bit.

Just like anything else, we need to be careful what we allow to sit in our souls.

I’m not entirely sure as I type this out what I want to say. Writing everyday has been a bit of a challenge for me. Friends, we’re only 13 days into Lent which means there’s 27 more days to go of daily writing.

It’s not that I don’t usually write something everyday. I just don’t usually share it with the world. I always have plenty to say. Just ask any of my elementary teachers who put my desk in the corner from talking too much. Harumph!!

They always wrote on my report card that I was a daydreamer and that I talked too much during class. As if recess was ever enough time to get all your chattering done.

Reflecting back I don’t really recall what I was daydreaming about. Maybe it was being a star in either singing or acting. I use to love me a hairbrush microphone and a good 45 vinyl record. I do remember wishing I had big hair on my head over the ridiculous amounts of hair I had on my legs and arms. Oy vey!

But, as a friend was said and it stuck, “if wishes were fishes, we’d all have a fry.” Ha!

Ok, back to the why of this story. My goals aren’t together all that lofty these days. I don’t have a 5 year or a 10 year plan. In this season of life, I’m ok with that. Seems I’ve been running my whole life. A little downtime is needed every now and again. No rushing. No agenda. Just daily asking my Jesus, what shall we do today?

This “quote” my friend sent this morning, struck a chord in me. So I thought I’d share with you all.

Healing like anything else takes time. When I came up with the name of my site, “Blessed to be Broken” it was for the acknowledgement that even broken things have purpose. Why was I blessed in that? Because that’s where my Savior met me. At the very bottom of my brokenness, He stepped in and rescued a wretch like me.

Did He leave me there? No, He didn’t. He started closing doors and opening new doors. Did I like all of it? No, I sure did not. Was it for my good? Yes, it sure was. I don’t always understand what’s going on, but I don’t have to. I just need to trust that a good and loving God is leading me. He’s been with me all along.

I can get on board with this healing quote. I want to be so healed that when others hear my story they can’t believe the fires Jesus stood with me in and know it’s not about me, but all about Him and His transformative love.

No one’s journey is perfect. If it were, we wouldn’t need a perfect Savior. And I don’t know about you, but to be the example for others to follow is way more pressure than I either need or want. Plus, I’m just as imperfect as the next person. That’s why you’ll always find me pointing to Jesus.

I don’t know where you are in your healing journey, but Jesus does. Do you trust Him to lead the way? If not, how’s doing things your way working out for ya? Just a little something to ponder on.

Heal on my friends! There’s beauty for those ashes.
