I was recently asked to speak at faculty devotions held weekly at my former elementary, middle, and high school. I was asked by my mother who teaches first grade at Whitinsville Christian School, and who’s turn to prepare devotions was approaching. The assignment was rigged. Reflect on two passages from scripture: the year long theme verse, Romans 12:5, “…one body, many members…” and the theme verse for December, John 1:14, “The Word became flesh…”, AND share a couple stories from Ghana. Oh yea… there is about a ten minute time limit… The following is about what I said.
For some reason God is having me reflect on the spirituality of brokenness as of late. It is an interesting concept and I have been learning a lot about celebrating the spirituality of brokenness. Brokenness is something as humans we are all to familiar with. But because of God’s grace we are able to celebrate brokenness. Brokenness is a voluntary surrender to God’s will over our own will. Being broken can be something that happens to us, but it can also be something we allow to happen in us. For in the broken areas of our lives Jesus can fill us with himself.
