 “Brokenness Has Its Blessings

Our lives aren’t just random, unconnected collections of scenes without meaning. They have purpose, and as we become more and more tuned in to who God is, we can have peace in the plot’s strange twists and turns. . . .

Many of us have chapters that we would prefer had never been written. . . . But the hard chapters show God’s power in a way that the happy ones do not. Brokenness moves my story forward in a way that peaceful times do not. It’s in the difficulties that I became desperate to really know God, to cry out to Him.

When everything is going well, we often can’t hear God, because the music all around us is turned up too loud. But when the party stops—in those moments of crashing pain, sorry, and sudden silence—we begin to hear His voice. . . .

God is with you no matter what. He is stronger than the challenges in front of you. You can trust Him. Even though you can’t see how your story will turn out, know that the end is in His hands.


The Road Home”


 “The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles.

The LORD is near to those who have a broken heart, and saves such as have a contrite spirit.

Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them all.”

PSALM 34:17–19

“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”
