Those words. Saturated with venom. Flooded with malice. Soaked with hate. Telling you that you are not good enough.
Words splashing, falling, dropping, dripping. Making a mess of everything.
The constant, never ending sound of leaking poison, echoing in the mind. Sometimes so loudly you feel you are going to go mad. Sometimes just a whisper, a teasing annoyance, a constant distraction, flooding the head with turmoil, doubt, and an aching need to be loved. Those words rain down, drenching the heart with negativity. Like a broken pipe those breaking words seep into thoughts, and like a broken faucet the tears flow. Tears of anger, longing, doubt and pain.
Tears collected, a pool formed. Then an ocean.
A flood was coming, it was on its way. A torrent of redemption was approaching.
Did you know? Do you know? Were you aware? Are you aware?
Did you know that you needed to be broken?
You never knew that broken hearts could heal so well. But they will. Better than before.
You never knew that these broken things could be mended. But they are. Better than before.
You never knew that broken homes could be restored. But they have. Better than before.
You never knew that broken minds could be fixed. But they can. Better than before.
What you never knew is that when you finally broke, it was the best thing that ever happened to you.
In fact, you still may not know. But you will.
Break away from lies. Be glad you are broken. Break away from pain. Be glad you are broken. Break away from all the negativity. Be glad you are broken. Break away from the devil’s words (or anyone that uses them) be glad you are broken. Break away from words that do not bring you life. Be glad you are broken.
There are pieces of you everywhere. Broken, ragged edges of emotions and experiences that can finally cut through all the deceit that you were blind to, until you eventually break away from all of the lies. Slices of your heart here and there, slivers of your thoughts out there for the whole world to know. Bits of your life on display for all to see –
All for a reason.
When you finally broke it was your time. Your time to be put back together the right way.
Broken hearts, broken minds. Broken homes, broken plans. Broken dreams, broken thoughts.
They all led you to one place, a journey, a longing, a path, a new direction.
It will be better. It gets better. I promise. That doesn’t mean it won’t be difficult. Sorting through the rubble of broken visions is hard, but so worth it.
Why don’t you take the hand of the one who’s heart was so broken for us that He gave everything so we could be put back together? Whole.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
You may not understand. Yet. What you may not know is that what is breaking you is making you whole.
God makes beautiful things out of the broken.
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
Your brokenness is a step to restoration, improvement, and joy.
He uses all for the benefit of those who love Him. Even the things that threaten to break us. ALL things.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
He is making you new. Better. Stronger. Amazing. Resilient. Beautiful.
You are worth it. Do you wonder how I know? He gave His life in exchange for yours. You were put here for a purpose. Find that purpose.
So fix the broken. Starting with yourself. Cut off the broken branches and thorns in your life, weed out the broken lies, words and malice. Reveal the new, the healed, the breathtakingly beautiful YOU that was buried under all that broken. Then pursue the broken. Fix the broken.
He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.
You were meant for better things, to see better things, to hear better things, to feel better things, to do better things.
Quit the poison. Whatever it is that your poison may be. Just quit. Walk away. Break away from the words of the enemy. The addiction. The lies. The abuse. Stop drinking the poison that brings death and come to the well that brings life! You are welcome here! The invitation is open. This is your sign, and this is your direction. It has all been pointing you right here!
Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
Today something has to change. Something needs to be broken. Something needs to break in order to be made brand new. Broken to be whole.

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.

Join with me in suffering, like a good soldier of Christ Jesus.
