When Brokenness Remains — 16 Comments

  1. Oh friend I just love your heart. The humility that’s evident. I struggle in some of the same areas and my writing seems effected by my times of inconsistency and my own personal brokenness as well. Sometimes I feel fake when writing because I know I have other struggles going on but don’t want to necessarily write about them and expose them to a broad audience. But I don’t think it means a lack of authenticity. Keep running to the feet of Jesus. I will too.

    • Melody, I’m so thankful you stopped by. I do believe God gives us our journeys so that they could be shared. Not everything perhaps, but some things. Thankful to have you along on this journey.

  2. This post is awesome! I’ve been dealing with a lot of bitterness lately. I’m a stuffer, but I’ve learned there’s no brokenness without openness & no healing without dealing. Thank you for your open heart. You have encouraged me greatly! Thank you, dear sister in Christ. Heart hugs & prayers lifting!

    • Kaylene, it was my prayer in publishing this post that it would encourage others. So thankful you stopped by. Thank you for your prayers!

  3. Friend, this is exactly what God is calling you to, for this season. I fully relate to EVERYTHING you are saying in this post. When we run, we can’t hide, we only hinder God’s work in our lives. It’s in our utter brokenness that He uses us the most, because we are fully yielded to him, unassuming of the glory-giving it all to Him. You truly are a gift. Your passion comes through in your writing & I love your words. Thank you for sharing this journey with us. It’s so encouraging to know that we’re not alone; that someone else understands what we’re going through! Praying for you & confident that the work God is perfecting in you will result in an out-pouring of blessings! Love to you! ♥

  4. Please remember one thing, dear friend – you don’t owe anyone an explanation. We all fall short and if we are honest with ourselves, we’ll never place judgment on others. Keeping you in my thoughts!

    • Yes, friend, I know this truth. It helps me to put it out there, and my prayer is that it would help someone else who may be in a similar struggle. Thankful to have you along on this journey.

  5. Stumbled upon your blog and what a beautiful post of an open heart! I appreciate your honesty and I’m sure God does too! For when we humble ourselves before him, he is pleased(: Praying for you. Loves~

  6. I admire your focus in writing and your willingness to see and confess the out-of-balance areas in your life. Praying for you, this morning.

  7. Barbie, I am praying for you. Your words sink deep and inspire me to seek God in my own struggles to write and share. Thank you for your commitment here for your continual “yes”. Love you!

  8. Barbie, you remain in my prayers dear friend. I know this has been a difficult time for you but your writing reveals how God is drawing you closer and closer to Him. It is so true, nothing compares to our relationship with Him and our families (and health too). You inspire me to lean in closer to Him and ask Him to reveal to me what I am still placing ahead of Him. The brokenness I know you feel, He is using. You are loved friend. So loved. I’m so grateful you have shared this with TWW. But ever more grateful for YOU. You have such a beautiful heart and I’m so glad to call you friend. Much love and hugs. XOXO
