Why Is Broken Such a Bad Word?

I really am okay being referred to as broken. I'm not a broken woman...I'm a woman broken by the Lord so that I can be healed. And I believe that I'm much better as a healed woman than I ever was before the breaking.

I have a long way to go and there is a lot of brokenness that needs to be healed.

I'm realizing this is a big topic. One that I'm going to have to ponder more. Because it's one thing for me to be broken and to watch God work with me towards healing. It is another thing all together to watch how the breaking of so much in our lives has affected my children. That has been very very difficult for me. I'm definitely going to have to pray about that before I share my thoughts.

I believe it's going to be me again recognizing that I have to entrust my children to God. I have to believe that He is working good for them in all of this too.

A lot to pray and ponder to be sure.

Thank you so much for being willing to walk this path with me. For being interested in my thoughts.

I pray that they have encouraged you that no matter what way we describe our families...whole, broken, wounded, healing, etc...God has us and it is good.
