Handling The Brokenness Within Us : By Elder Pamela Richards
   

Individuals throughout the world, at some point, has, or will, experience brokenness. According to www.freedictionary.com, brokenness is defined as having been violated, incomplete, or separated into two or more pieces. Given the severity of our fractures at times, we can not identify one culprit alone to be the cause of our brokenness. Many today air their past hurts, and the culprit for their brokenness dates back to what was experienced within the family unit. Others have told horrifying stories of relationship woes that rendered them broken. How can the brokenness be mended?

 

            Growing up as children, we were taught by our parents that drinking milk can help keep our bones strong within our bodies, so that if we were to ever fall, our bones would be protected, or so we thought. What then, can we ingest that will help protect us from being broken emotionally, or spiritually? As we ponder this thought, we are reminded, that even in the natural, when bones are broken, there is a process for physical healing. Anyone that has broken any bones within their body have had xrays taken to find out where the broken place or fracture is, and a treatment plan is recommended.

 

            Individuals who break their bones visit an Orthopaedic Specialist, and they are casted for a specified period of time. The place that is broken is wrapped and protected, and with time, it eventually heals. As a person is casted, the place that is broken is not used during that time as well, as any sudden movement  will impede the healing process. How then, can those that have broken emotions, or are spiritually broken receive healing?

 

            Psalm 34:18 reminds us, that, "the Lord draws near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit." (ESV) For those experiencing brokenness, GOD is the answer to healing any present, past, or future hurt. As with the Orthopaedic Specialist, all affected persons need to visit the one that knows all things! Through the working of the Holy Spirit, GOD can reach out and touch the places of brokenness, and cast the affected area. As it is in the natural, we also need to spend time in GOD's presence being immobilized until the place of fracture or brokenness heals. How can we allow ourselves to be immobilized when we have to keep living? We do so by remaining in His presence! In His presence, there is fullness of joy! Also, as we are in His presence, His power will reach and heal every broken area within our lives.

 

            As we await GOD's manifested power to deliver us from our past hurt, we need to seek His wisdom concerning how we are to relate to others, and especially those that caused us to be broken. Through GOD, and time, we will be able to forgive those that sought to destroy our lives. If we are not able to forgive, then we can not expect for the damaged areas within us to keep its repair. Unforgiveness is powerful enough to cause old sores and wounds to reopen. Though the task is not easy, we must endeavor to forgive!

 

            In sum, dealing with brokenness can be quite a daunting task, but a necessary one. How can we minister effectively if we are bleeding from old wounds? How strong will our witness be, if we constantly release venom due to old hurt and pain? Through GOD, all things are possible! He desires to be to us what an Orthopaedic Specialist is to those with broken bones. He wants to cast us, so that we can heal properly in those broken places. Cry out, "Abba Father" today, and allow Him to cast you! Cry out "Hosanna" and let Him mend your broken pieces this very day! Myriad persons are out there along the way, awaiting our healing so that they can receive theirs. Give Him what's broken, and move forward by His Spirit, and in His divine timing, after your casting! Kingdom Blessings, and we bid to all that are broken in this hour, GOD's speed upon their lives!!
