90. The Blessings in Brokenness
How can you find God's blessing in brokenness? When weeks last much longer than the pay or income is absent, sickness overtakes, physical bruises are harder to hide or mental or emotional illness fill your sorrow - and you isolate from others?
When you come to the end of yourself, the only way to go is up. Blessing is about the gift of life He provides as you release yourself to His healing, His way. God breaks all things that will stop His eternal goal for you; your education, financial status, affiliations, willpower, commitment and determination to do it your way. You realize your limitations when you allow God's mercy and unending grace to take over. We will all stand in this at one point.
You need to realize you cannot live an abundant life without His guidance - for He created you for a purpose. When you are at your weakest, His power then is allowed to manifest within you. He is breaking you down little by little, like peeling an onion; layer upon layer. It often is painful. Only when those deep-seated issues are cleaned out can you understand His grace.
When the issues are cleaned you will know yourself better and the limitations you have placed on yourself. You will have more compassion for others struggling through same. You will see His grace more clearly. His presence is all around you! You will feel refined and be purified by His fire. Pain or illness can be part of the purification. Your submission to His blessing defines this stage. He will work through you when you are ready. Romans 8:28 states "And we know that all things work together for those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose."
