“A Place Called Brokenness… and A Place Called Secret”

I wanted to share a posting that was originally written in 2014 then expanded upon tonight. I have been in both places in my life… The place called brokenness and The Place called Secret. And I can honestly tell you that there is no better place to be than in The Secret Place of God’s Presence where healing and restoration occur. I pray that more and more victims can overcome their brokenness.

“Brokenness” is a Place…
that many don’t know.
For it is NOT a Place…
that many want to go.
And when we never visit…
then we know not how they feel…
to be so humbled and broken…
that on our knees we fall to kneel.
For this “Place called Brokenness” is hard…
and not a place that’s desired…
whether from abuse or marriage loss…
or illness or even a job fired.
But its in this Place…
when we crumble to our knees…
that we reach out for GOD…
and cry out, “Lord, Help me! Please!”
And in this “Brokenness”…
a place of pain and desolation…
is when we see God move…
and begin to feel His restoration.
For when we have nothing left…
and our worlds have fallen apart…
is when we finally let go…
and totally give God our heart.
And He will heal and restore…
and put compassion in our hearts…
for the next time someone feels broken…
we’ll remember where compassion got it’s start.
For we would have walked the streets…
and in a “Place of Brokenness” we’ve stood…
and it’s only from this perspective…
that this brokenness can be understood.

(Part 2)

And it’s from this place of brokenness…
that a new stage of our lives begin…
as we seek more and more of God…
and a New Place we then enter in.
For there is a Place…
that many have yet to find…
and it’s in this Secret Place…
that all the brokenness is left behind.
For in this Place…
God’s Peace is so strong…
and we can soak in His Presence…
just knowing It’s where we belong.
For healing and restoration are found…
with God’s abundant mercy and grace…
so seek intimacy with God…
and you will find His Secret Place.

Psalm 91:1-8
He who dwells in the Secret Place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.”
Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler
And from the perilous pestilence.
He shall cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you shall take refuge;
His truth shall be your shield and buckler.
You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
A thousand may fall at your side,
And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
Only with your eyes shall you look,
And see the reward of the wicked.
