Wonderfully Broken

There's something peaceful about being broken before Jesus - when you come to the end of yourself and realize, again, that He holds you all together. {"Long before he laid down earth's foundations, he had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of his love, to be made whole and holy by his love." Eph 1:3 (MSG)}

There's something reconciling about being helplessly quiet before the creator of the universe - looking up from the hands that formed you. {"It's in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up, he had his eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose he is working out in everything and everyone." Eph 1:11-12 (MSG)}

Trust, pray, be still and KNOW that He is God.

{ "My response is to get down on my knees before the Father, this magnificent Father who parcels out all heaven and earth." Eph 3:14 (MSG) }

~ When we live in the illusion of entitlement we neglect the power of inheritance and negate the influence of God's blessing. ~
This is true with more than money!

{ "God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us." Eph 3:20 (MSG) }

Graciously saved & Wonderfully broken. Joyfully healed & Continuously praising.

Whether you "tweet" or not :) here are some tweets and tweetERS that i've really loved. God's perspective is everything!
*LisaBevere RT @MattChandler74: When the illusion of control disappears we become men & women of prayer ...may it be so.
ChristineCaine If you are in a transitional time between "no longer" & "not yet"..don't get that God is in control..His timing is everything
