Broken


The Lord is close to the brokenhearted
    and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
Psalm 34:18

Today's prompt for Five Minute Friday is Broken. My mind is reeling, I can write about about broken. So I should start. Find a timer because this could go on and on. Ready? Set? ... go?

Broken.
So many things can be broken.
Hearts.
Families.
Spirits.
Some say "broken beyond repair".
But GOD.
God says "I AM"
God's word says-
You can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens you.
Sometimes it's hard to understand that.
It's hard to grasp.
Seeing the miracles of God.
Seeing LIFE given.
LIFE Redeemed.
Still hard to trust at times.
We are broken many times because of sin.
God's perfect love and compassion sets boundaries for us.
Boundaries. Rules. Laws.
There for safety, put up with love.
To guide and protect us.
We break them.
The rules.
God's heart.
The consequences are often something broken.
Spirit.
Heart.
Relationship.
Body.
Health.
God is.
Healer.
Counselor.
Great Physician.
Mighty.
ABOUNDING in GRACE.
Mercy.
Love.
Mender of broken hearts- lives.
Close to the broken hearted.
Some things need brokenness.
Pride.
My pride.
Beckon me.
The cross.
Breaks me.
For Christ.

STOP. 
(really? Already? Couldn't even gather my thoughts.)
