I started a new Bible study last week with a group of ladies from our home church. We miss it so much that we are finding ourselves drawn back there to attend any chance we get when we are not on the road for ministry. The study is Chip Ingram’s “Rebuilding Your Broken World.”
Life has many broken places for us to experience. We can have brokenness in our emotions, our relationships, our careers or dreams, our spiritual lives, and more. I am learning along the journey that being in a broken spot is the exact place where God reaches parts of me that I never knew needed His touch. When I give in to that brokenness and, as the first week of the study has talked about, ask “What?” instead of “Why?” God begins to work. I am NOTICING GOD more when I am seeking, and I am SEEKING more when I am hurting, and I am HURTING when I am broken, so being BROKEN leads to noticing God more and growth in my relationship with Him. The key question is: will I notice and seek even though I feel hurt in the broken places of my life?
