It doesn’t matter what kind of brokenness (financial, mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical) you experience in life because brokenness on all platforms hurts like hell!
It’s of no surprise that brokenness reveals itself in so many ways. However, one definition according to the Cambridge Dictionary kind of hits the universal nail on the head; “Brokenness is a condition in which something is badly damaged and unable to continue or work correctly.”
The reasons for feeling broken vary from person to person. Some people feel broken because of things they experienced in childhood or after the loss of a friend or loved one. Others may feel broken after losing a job or a home, or even after experiencing a serious illness.
Although brokenness may feel isolating, overwhelming, or even frightening, it’s important to know that you are not alone. Everyone deals with feelings of brokenness and pain. Being able to recognize these feelings and knowing when to seek help so that you can heal from the hurt and live an emotionally healthy life is crucial for you long-term wellbeing and happiness.
Personally, I am learning that facing my brokenness leads to healing because my brokenness points me to the cross and to God’s word. Jesus said in Matthew 11:28,“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Jesus understood the weight of brokenness (Matthew 27:45-46, and Hebrews 2:9-18) and He knew that brokenness on all levels can be damaging, but He equally knew that laying our cares and worries before God gives us the support, strength, and stamina we need to get through our storms. Jesus knew that no matter the size, source, or severity of our brokenness, God can repair our wounds. Psalm 147:3 says, “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.”
As we continue to press closer to God’s presence and working in our lives, we can find hope in knowing that our brokenness isn’t pointless. On the contrary, it’s worth something of immeasurable value (Romans 8:18). It will drive us further into the heart of the only One who makes us whole and complete (James 1:1-2).
