This Sunday we will begin a brand new series called, “Broken…Nothing Wasted.”
All of us know of a time in our lives where we have been broken. Brokenness is all too familiar.
All of us have a Broken experience that we can speak of. We all have been disappointed and frustrated by the circumstances of our lives. I would never pretend to know exactly what you are going through. I wouldn’t dare to assume that I understand your unique set of circumstances or the pain and confusion you are feeling right now.
But, I do know pain, I know hurt, frustration, sadness, dark times, and even depression. I know brokenness!
I have personally experienced broken dreams, bad decisions, bumps and major roadblocks.
I have caused many of my broken experiences myself. That really hurts!
I have also been on the end where someone else’s decisions or responses have caused major heartache, and the pieces went everywhere. I have been stuck in a rut, a hole, and felt like I could not climb out.
There was a time in my life almost 11 years ago when I wore my pajamas every day for months. I have personally lived in the “funk and fog.” I have been broken.
I also came to that fork in the road, you know, that critical crossroad where you know you can’t figure it all out or you really can’t do anything about your circumstances, but you can make a decision. A decision that says “I’m tired of being this way, feeling this way, and living this way.” I’m tired of being sick and tired. I’m fed up with life as it is.
You may not understand what’s happening to you right now and you really don’t like it…
God uses broken things! Nothing is wasted! God can redeem any situation and any problem. Nothing is wasted.
