Broken (Five Minute Friday)

Five Minute Friday

Give me the broken people. Cause I can't handle to perfect, got-it-all-together people. I'll take your alcoholics, sex addicts, ok basically any kind of addict will do. I'll take anyone who's living any kind of alternative lifestyle. Just straight up, honest broken people.

That's part of our calling here in Orlando. To the hurting and the broken. They come in all shapes and sizes. They live in the ghetto or work in the high rise. And they're everyone in between. I can find broken people anywhere.

Perhaps its because God has chosen to break us and let us experience so much pain and loss and trauma for His glory. I see myself in others pain and hopefully they see themselves in mind.

I refuse to be a part of the perfect suburb-living, churches that don't reach lost people, "American dream" culture. So this may be foolish and gutsy but...

"God continue to break us so we can better reach those your heart breaks for."

    1. Brian, that is so true. Thanks for sharing.
