Sometimes we feel broken. Broken Spanish or language. Broken heart because of our weaknesses. Broken spirits because of tragedies of losing someone or something.
Broken, broken, broken.
But here is what we can learn from the Scriptures about being broken.
-Exodus 14:13-22 – God ‘broke’ the waters for Mosses and the children of Israel, leading them to freedom
-Psalms 34:18 – God draws NEAR to broken hearts
-Psalms 51:17 – A broken heart is exactly what God asks us to sacrifice to Him
– Psalms 147:3 – He then HEALS the broken hearts
-Matthew 14:19-21 – Broken bread feeds thousands
-Matthew 26:26 – Broken bread represents Christ
-1 Corinthians 11:24 – Christ’s body was BROKEN for us
-2 Nephi 3:5 – A righteous branch is to be BROKEN off for the latter days to bring light to the dark world.. that is us
-Mosiah 15:23 – Christ has broken the bands of death
-1 Nephi 12:4 – Broken earth did and will signify the coming of the Lord

Morning breaks the darkest of nights.
Broken clouds bring rain and sunlight.
Broken soil brings crops.
Broken pride brings peace.
Broken walls bring friends.
I am to Break the news of Christ.
We need to put his name on our hearts until it feels Broken in.
Maybe God loves broken things.
Maybe God loves broken me.
I know that Heavenly Father loves us and if we are obedient, doing everything we can to follow the example of Christ, we will be blessed and we will be given the strength we need for every thing in our lives. Being broken does not mean we cannot be fixed or made better. So never get discouraged 🙂 Just stay in the boat! Whether things are hard or easy.
