All of us has endured some form of brokenness. Whether in a relationship, a disappointment, a betrayal, the loss of a dream or of a loved one, we have all experienced hurt. We can forgive, but we can never forget. The memories linger and pour into our remembrances unheeded. Brokenness makes us tend toward closing down the area that was breached. We want to hide that place away, seal it off as in a tomb.
But God desires for us to live whole lives. He requires that we be surrendered to Him totally, with nothing held back or reserved. He longs to pour through us and heal every heartache, every sore place, every hidden hurt. He's not waiting for us to fix ourselves, we can't do it. Allow Him to shine His glory on your broken places.
