Blessed and Broken

“It is doubtful whether God can bless a man greatly until He has hurt him deeply.” -A.W. Tozer

There is a song by Rascal Flats that goes, “God bless the broken road that led me straight to you.” This person had to suffer some heartache before they walked into joy of knowing their soul mate. A relationship with God many times works the same way in that He has to break us, whether it’s of our pride, our hopes, and our dreams—so that we can walk into our destinies of following Christ. Sometimes we don’t realize until later that the breaking was the blessing.

 As they sat down to eat, he took the bread and blessed it. Then he broke it and gave it to them. (Luke 24:30)
