Brokenness

What Does Brokenness Mean

What does Brokenness mean? What does it mean to be broken by God?

What Causes Brokenness

A lot of brokenness has to do with receiving the consequences of our own poor behavior. We have had previously been living for our own selfish motives, not caring who got hurt.

 

What is the Result of Brokenness

We can't seek brokenness ourselves because we seek it in areas where we can manage it, where it won't hurt too much. Many sing about or claim brokenness.

Our shell of selfish pride is so .... that it takes a lot for us to be truly broken. When we are broken it hurts down to our deepest inner defenses.

The result of true brokenness is that our pride is broken and we see ourselves for who we truly are? We quick blaming others and see that we are the primary cause of our pain and problems.

When we are truly broken, it hurts us to much and so deeply that we never want to go back.

True brokenness, coupled with ... gives us true wisdom. Be begin to see ourselves and the other people in this world as we truly are.
