Brokenness Isn’t Always Bad

We often connect brokenness with a not so desirable outcome. Whenever something is broken, decisions has to be made. A broken vehicle means repair costs, a broken relationship means emotional pains, and a broken dish means trouble when mom returns.

The following passage however is a good phraseology of brokenness.

Psalm 51:16-17. For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

The psalmist explains that God is desiring a yielded heart and spirit. When a motor vehicle driver approaches a yield sign, he or she breaks their speed to check oncoming traffic. Sometimes God requires us to stop completely other times we are requested to slow down and acknowledge his presence. Allow him to take the lead and then we can follow him to our destination.
