Day 3: Brokenness, Avenue to Healing

"Moreover, the light of the moon will be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun will be sevenfold, as the light of seven days,

 in the day 
                the LORD binds up 
                                        the brokenness 
                                                    of his people, 
                               heals the wounds 
                                                inflicted by his blow."

Isaiah 30:26

Hosea 6:1-3
"Come, let us return to the LORD; for he has torn us, that he may heal us; he has struck us down, and he will bind us up.

After two days he will revive us; on the third day he will raise us up, that we may live before him.

Let us know; let us press on to know the LORD; his going out is sure as the dawn; He will come to us as the showers, as the spring rains that water the earth."

Wounded, torn, broken. Brokenness is His avenue to healing.

This is an "upside kingdom" that we operate in. It's crazy. Doesn't make sense. To live, we must die. To be healed, He breaks us.

So how does this affect my interpretation of my own brokenness? How should this affect the way I walk with my friends through their brokenness?

Mmm . . . to be revisited. :)
