How can those two words possibly go together?
Considering just how shattering life's blows can be, can we honestly believe God will bring good out of our most hearbreaking crises? "It's difficult to discern the blessing in the midst of brokennes," says Dr. Charles Stanley. "Certain circumstances in life hurt, at times so intensely that we think we will never heal." The death of a loved one, the loss of a job, a lingering illness... the catalysts for brokenness all possess a wrenching pain and the power to forever alter our lives.
But they also possess one thing more: the potential for discovering a richness in living we otherwise would never know.
Perhaps you've already experienced circumstances so shattering you may wonder today whether it's even possible to pick up the pieces. And maybe you can't. But God can -- and the good news is, he wants to reassemble the shards of your life into a wholeness that only the broken can know.
