The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.

John 10:10

Thriving depends on me. No one else holds the key to my ability to thrive and become the very best version of me. No matter what I have experienced.

We are all broken…without exception. Jesus died to heal the brokenness and restore us. I decide what I will do with my brokenness. There are two choices.

I can acknowledge my brokenness and allow it to become my strength. When I meet Jesus in my places of woundedness, he restores and heals. These experiences create beauty and strength in my life.

I can ignore the brokenness and it becomes my excuse, my weapon, the reason I don’t thrive. I wield the brokenness like a sword, slashing anyone who comes near and dares to cross my boundary. Or I remain a victim. My failure to thrive is not my fault as I recall the injustices of the past and settle more deeply into my place of brokenness.

It is your choice. Do you want your brokenness to be your strength and beauty or your excuse and weapon?
