He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. Psalm 147:3

The definition of fractured is the act of breaking; the state of being broken. My fall as few weeks ago was not a sprain as I had hoped, but it turned out to be a fracture.  With good doctors and all their advice, a path was charted for me and if I do as I have been told, in a few weeks I will be good a new and it will be behind me.

Fractured could also be described as broken. In our lives, we each have been broken at one time or another. Suffering the loss of a special loved one, dealing with an illness, or finding our way in a troubled relationship. Through no fault of our own, businesses have folded and we have lost jobs. Marriages end. Tragedies have struck with no warning whatsoever. No one is exempt from these times. Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. Matthew 5:3-4  What is most important is that we have a shoulder to lean on. We have faith already established that we know where to go when we are broken.  But if we are just starting out in our Christian walk or don’t know God at all, call out to Him, surrender and let Him touch you. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.  Psalm 34:18  Why must we go through these broken times where everything in our reach feels shattered? Sometimes they are the consequences to our bad decisions. Other times, it is just life in our fallen world. But God can take our crushed spirits and give us beauty for our ashes. What was intended for our harm can be turned around for our good.  And then there are the times when God breaks us Himself. Our own independence from Him, our pride and righteousness keeps us from Him and He desires to show us His Almighty Power as He brings us close to Him.
