The breaking point in life is when all that we have known or believed falls apart. It is the moment when everything we have held so tightly is brought on their knees. We begin to question the essence of our very existence.
A picture perfect life for a wife, a mother and a soon to be grandmother all suddenly ripped apart by the agonizing pain of death and every memory she had had goes up in smoke.
This poor woman watched her whole life turned into a chaotic mess, did everything but watch helplessly.
Who is she?
Allow me reintroduce, Naomi, the one woman whose life intertwines with ours one way or the other. She has been through it all.
Is life looking like a towering mess?
Is everything falling apart?
Until Naomi’s life was turned upside down there was never going to be a Boaz or an Obed or a Jesse or even King David in her generation.
Bible Reading: Ruth 1: 1-11
Sometimes in the midst of our life story, everything we have needs to fall apart for us to hold that which is priceless and truest.
Like Naomi, we don’t understand why we go through these breaking and re-moulding but we can trust God is in it all and until He is finished we won’t understand it.
Our seemingly perfect life cannot handle the magnitude of God’s assignment.
Let me change your perspective….
When you feel everything is falling apart, everything is rearranging itself to manifest God’s glory which means sometimes there is a shaking here and there and at other times shaking all over the place, until we are prepared, thoroughly ready for your assignment.
We know the process of shaking, breaking, re-moulding isn’t one bit of fun but we can trust God for our glorious end.
Why does He shake us down to our protective core?
Why does God call us to lose it all?
For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it. For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Mark 8:35-36 KJV
God knows when we are filled with ourselves there will little space for Him.
We need to lose our lives at the place of the altar through total surrender.
He calls us to surrender all the broken pieces to Him so He can fix us.
And there it is……
Enough holding back!
Enough of fighting to hold your life together let God work through and thorough in your life.
