Thoughts for Thursday by Emily Farmer



What does brokenness mean to you? Is it really necessary? To me brokenness is necessary if you want to grow in your walk with God. I believe when you are broken you are brought to a different place in your walk of life. To me its God's way of saying listen to me, I have something to tell you.
Brokenness can be very scary. But when depending on God, He can help us through our brokenness. Over and over again He tells us in HIS word that HE is there for us. HE will lead us in the right direction if only we will allow that. Leaning on God and depending on HIM is hard if you are the type who doesn't depend on others too well. But that's what God wants from us.
Brokenness is a lot like pruning. Pruning in plates and flowers is cutting away the bad so good can grow. That's exactly how our walk with God is. He allows us to go through certain situations in life so we will depend on HIM so He can show HIS love for us and take care of us. HE is the one who can take away the bad and replace it with good- HIS goodness, God's goodness.
"The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing."
Zephaniah 3:17

"And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love.
Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him"
1 John 4:16

"Your love, O Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies."
Psalm 36:5
