Broken can be beautiful





No one sets out to diminish the health of their own soul…But let’s face it – it happens! Life is what happens.



Peace will never come until we have accepted in totality all that is involved in our suffering, even facing and accepting the fact that the sorrow that has struck us so suddenly may never be removed.  Acceptance is taking from God's hand absolutely anything He chooses to give us, looking up into His face with love and trust." Margaret Clarkson

It is only natural to ask "why" in times of suffering but perhaps instead of asking "why" the question should be "who".  Who do we turn to when life depletes our soul through the painful circumstances of today?  

It is to God that we turn because:


 "it is a simple fact of life: there will be difficulties, setbacks and disappointments.  For some people there will be rejection; for others there will be tragic losses.  For still others there will be inexplicable suffering.  No one is immune from pain; it is part of the package that comes with life.  All people experience the brokenness of the world intersecting with their lives in a thousand and one ways."  Gordon T. Smith


Broken can be beautiful when we begin to see how He ever draws us closer.  

The health of our soul DOES matter so why don't you join me in this journey as we learn to sit quietly to sip the cup of living water that He presses to our lips.
