Sometimes things must change so you can change!
Sometimes mistakes happen so wisdom can be earned.
Sometimes you must overcome heartache so you can follow your heart.
Sometimes you must break a little so you can have a peek inside yourself and see how great you are!" ~Unknown
Mother Teresa of Calcutta once said, "some things done with great love will change the world." This woman of faith devoted her life to the poorest of the poor in India.
She lived in poverty herself and cared for broken people in a way that most of us cannot fully comprehend, and she certainly made a difference in this world and walked with the broken with great love, which to me is true greatness.
Recently, God brought a precious young mom into my life who is broken and in despair. She contacted me for a counseling recommendation, but she also asked me if I would help her connect with Jesus in a personal way. As we talked together, she sobbed, as she shared how broken she is and how she is incapable of truly loving anyone, at this point in her life.
In the past, I would have referred this precious brokenhearted young woman to a counselor, and I would have felt ill-equipped to walk with her through her depression and despair. However, because of being broken myself after the death of my youngest son, Kevin, I have companioned with hundreds of brokenhearted moms, and others who have suffered, and I do not hesitate to come alongside those who are hurting, wounded and broken, and I consider it an absolute honor and blessing.
Do you know someone who is broken? Won't you consider giving them a call, sharing a meal with them, sending a card or "walking" with them for awhile? You, like me, may find that you are walking in greatness, because I believe that as Jesus said, "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven." Matthew 5:3
Blessed to Be Walking with the Broken,
