Sometimes, We Need To Be Broken For God To Shine Through Our Cracks
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. – 2 Corinthians 12:9
Why do times of great growth and spiritual awakening often come out of pain and brokenness? Because we are fallen creatures, and we cling to our old selves, and the selfish ways of the world, and the only way for God’s light to shine through is to clear out everything in our hearts and lives that is getting in the way. It hurts, but the suffering soon gives way to true hope and grace. The struggle to surrender is a familiar one to Christians, and the talented spoken word poet (and friend of FaithHub!) Joel Antson speaks into this battle. Watch this stunning video, and see how the conversation between hope and hopelessness takes place on a personal and universal level.
