“Blessed, Broken and Given”

“The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and He addeth no sorrow with it.”  Proverbs 10:22

It is vitally important to the success of your Journey that you not measure your worth by your material possessions.  Often we look at the “things” possessed by others and we determine that we are coming up short.  Meanwhile, there may be someone looking at your “things” and accomplishments and attaching minimum value to them.  The Word of God is full of examples of this practice by mankind.  Yet, we fail to look at the “value” of a person, as determined by their Creator.

One of my favorite Bible stories is the one found in St. Matthew chapter 14 where Jesus took the “little” lunch belonging to the “little” boy and fed many.  The scripture shows us that there were many present who did not think that what the little boy had was sufficient.  They even suggested to Jesus that He send the people away and let them find food somewhere else.  However, Jesus did not even entertain the thought of not using what was ALREADY present.  He ordered them to bring “what they had” to Him and He “blessed it; broke it into pieces and gave it to those in need.”  There was even “fragments” left over.

Today I encourage you to “take what you have” and present it to the Father.  Your act of submission and willingness to obey Him will gain you multiple blessings.  Present to Him all of your brokenness and watch Him work.

Before you were even born, He has blessed your gifts, talents and dreams.  You were predestined to be a gift to the world.  Every phase of your Journey was divinely orchestrated to bring you to THIS place.  Now that you have been broken and humbled before His feet, you are ready to be given.  Surrender your ALL to Him and you will continue to be amazed at the amazing path He has chosen for you.  Doors will open for you that noone can close.  Divine connections with manifest on a daily basis.  This is YOUR time to be all that you have been promised.

“Blessed, Broken and Given”, there is no other way!

  1. Wonderful word Jamie. Sometimes we spend so much time thinking that we have to give, be or do more. Each of us has something to give right where we are & that giving is what brings us more. Keep writing, keep doing, keep being…you’re a blessing to many!
