When Others Judge My Broken Heart

[67] Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word.
[68] Thou art good, and doest good; teach me thy statutes.
[69] The proud have forged a lie against me: but I will keep thy precepts with my whole heart.
[70] Their heart is as fat as grease; but I delight in thy law.
[71] It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes.

“It is a rather humbling thing when God begins to break us.  Sometimes the very thing that God uses to make us good Christians is the thing that everybody else will sit in judgment of.”

~ Dennis Corle from Weathering the Storms of Life

If God is working in your life…let Him work!  Don’t be embarrassed by what He is doing, even if He is chastening you.  That chastening work, when you respond to it properly, will make you more like Christ.  Ignore what others say, and what their opinions are of your brokenness.

Let Christ work to make you more like Himself, that He can draw others to Himself, through the light that is shining out from your broken vessel.
