Phewwww! Where do I even start with this one?? Many times, I swear I have everything under control in my life. I plan and I execute. But as soon as something goes wrong and expectations aren’t met, then I feel lost and confused. It seems as if road blocks have been strategically placed, blocking every turn, causing me to question myself as the driver of my life. I question my reality. Do I REALLY have things under control??? I feel broken, inadequate, and hopeless. Back to square one I go, desperately trying to handle things on my own. Soon enough, I’m back at square one, again! This cycle continues several times before realizing that I need help. Who else is on this struggle bus?
In EVERY aspect of my life, I struggle with holding on vs letting go. I struggle with letting someone higher than I am be in control of my being. I struggle to let God be God. However, I am learning that there is beauty in being broken and vulnerable. There is power in letting God take control of life’s battle.
JESUS, TAKE THE WHEEL!!! Better yet, TAKE THE WHOLE CAR!!!!
In my battle with brokenness, I am reminded of Tasha Cobbs song, Gracefully Broken. This is one of my go-to songs when I am feeling some way. A friend at school and I ministered this song to close out the semester Dec 2017. I wanted to share this video with you so we can become whole, together. As you watch, I challenge you to open your mind and heart and allow yourself to be gracefully broken in Jesus Christ. Allow Him to put you back together again. He will create a masterpiece way better than you could’ve done!!
Stay tuned for an in-depth look at what it means to be broken and how we can get through it!
