Your Agonizing Brokenness Will Be Transformed

November 26, 2014

“The joy I offer grows in the soil of emptiness and brokenness.  In My Spirit’s hands, your felt emptiness will become a consuming thirst to know My Son.  Your agonizing brokenness over the ongoing corruption in your soul will transform into overwhelming gratitude for My Son’s forgiveness.  It is empty and broken people who at the same time are thirsty and grateful who discover the power to live in ways they never thought possible.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, 66 Love Letters, Page 268

Questions for Reflection:
• What stirs in you – fear, longing, hope – as you ponder the thought that the joy God gives grows out of emptiness and brokenness?
• In what ways have emptiness and brokenness, thirst and gratitude opened your heart more deeply to the life of God?

  1. Amen… It is in our brokenness, when we have nothing left that we truly give Him our lives… then watch what He will do,.
