I am broken! I am broken in every way. It seems that one step forward always equals two steps backward. Just when I feel like I finally have the breakthrough I needed, something else negatively happens.
Every day I reminded of the Apostle Pauls words, “For I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate (Romans 7:15).” Every day, I am reminded of how broken I am.
I am broken spiritually.
Every day, I am more aware of my need for Christ. Yet, every day, I am also aware of my failure to truly live out the Christ-likeness that I am called to as a follower of Jesus Christ.
I am broken physically.
The past year (2017) has been a wake-up call for me physically. I had multiple bouts with diverticulitis. I spent Mother’s Day in the hospital with a drain tube protruding from my abdomen because of an abscess. Eventually, I had surgery to remove nine inches of my colon. At which time pathology confirmed that I had indeed assessed a second time.
I am broken relationally.
By nature, I am an introvert. Once I get to know you and the conversation have been started, I can talk to you all day long. Otherwise, I have trouble starting the conversation and it is difficult for me to open up to you.
I am broken in my life experience.
By that I mean I have big goals in life. I have big dreams for myself, my church and my family. Yet, I consistently fail to meet those goals.
