5 Minute Friday - Broken

Today's word : Broken


We've all experienced being broken. For some of us we've had years of pain, disappointment, fighting and giving in. We've had high hopes only to be let down. We've been so angry it causes tears to stream. We've had losses of those close to us whether it was a death of loved one, the death of a friendship or the death of a marriage.
They say when one breaks a bone, the break heals stronger than it was before. It has been reinforced by the scar tissue that is only there because of the break.
The Psalmist says *When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.
To heal we must first cry. Cry tears of pain, cry in sadness, cry in anger, cry in mourning. But above all, we must cry out for help. Until we cry, we don't release what has broken us and begin the healing. Brokenness makes us stronger if we let the break heal first.

*Psalms 34 17 & 18

  1. Such an important point. It's important to cry. Tears are part of the healing.

    Great #FMF post.

  2. Lovely... We must grieve and mourn and acknowledge the brokenness before we can begin healing. What a wonderful reminder.
