“Brokenness is a journey everyone must take. To be born is to be broken. We cannot enter the earth without the breaking of water. The same water that sustains us for nine months becomes the very thing we must break through, Life is filled with pregnant moments. Periods of deep darkness through which we must break through. Periods of brokenness from which we seek to be whole. The body experiences physical in the form of physical trauma, disease, and injury. The mind/soul experiences brokenness in the form of emotional trauma, stress, personal loss, and a feeling of disconnectedness from the self or others. The spirit experiences brokenness in the form of spiritual trauma, anger toward God, a lack of belief in God, and felling a disconnectedness from God. When any one of these three experience brokenness, it affects the function of the other areas. Spiritual rest is where the broken places mend. Rest holds up the fragments, naked and unashamed, before God.”
