"Brokenness is when the Holy Spirit gloriously ruins your life."
This quote came from my journal. I've been broken many times. However, my breaking point (the first real break) occurred the summer before eighth grade. Yes, God broke me young. I'm glad he did. I think that's why I love youth ministry so much. The worst and best kind of breaking leads to God.
My life was ruined but God's life for me began. Selfishness began to fade. Love replaced empty places. It really was and still is glorious.
