Broken {Five Minute Friday}

Fragments

Countless times, during motherhood, and especially during these homeschooling years, I have given up.  I’ve just been done.  I cry out to God that I’m too broken for this.  I have too much of myself to fix and some feels beyond repair.  I look at my long list of not being good enough and it overwhelms me.

Life gets too busy for this introverted momma and I crack under the pressure.  The pressure of doing everything right.  The fear of failure.

Then I hear words of truth.

Come broken and weary
Come battered and bruised
Jesus makes all things new
All things new*

It’s too much to handle alone.  I know this.  God gently reminds me that I am following Him and although His ways are good and right, they are not always easy.

God never promised easy.

So, I wear my brokenness as a badge of honor.  Only through brokenness and honesty can light shine through.

Only through brokenness can Jesus make all things new.

I’m linking up yet again to the beautiful Five Minute Friday community.  Please join in!

    1. Thanks for visiting again, Caroline- I sincerely appreciate it 🙂 I constantly have to remind myself that this way isn’t easy but it is right. Blessings to you.

  2. Great post mom!! I love this quote, “We’re not broken just bent”. Your post just reminded me of that ^u^
