Gracefully Broken

In December of 2018 while reflecting on the challenges of that past year, I heard a quiet reassurance in my spirit. I wrote down the words that flowed through my spirit:

“Your Journey- trials and challenges- was not intended to harm you. I broke you so I can pour out of you and use that which has been purified. I trusted you to stay committed to the process. The lessons learned are so designed so you can touch the lives of others from an authentic place.”

Thank you Jesus for this version of me – the best is still yet to come. Do you feel the same as we near the ending of 2021? Was it a year that drew the best (at times the worst) out of you? I encourage you to come up higher and dare to trust the Lord with the unknowns. Do it alone or with a crowd- boldly or afraid! Let Him do it in you – be beautifully broken…

  1. “The lessons learned are so designed so you can touch the lives of others from an authentic place.”
    This resonates with me. Since 2016 I have been going through some experiences which almost broke me then in 2020 (could be late 2019) I heard similar words from the Lord. God is awesome. I rejoice with you my teacher. Continued blessings as you live you purpose in Him.
