In thinking through the events of the past three years, the word, “brokenness” floods my heart; brokenness coming physically, emotionally and relationally. When so much suffering hits simultaneously, a believer may find spiritual solace in simply “being still and knowing that God is God.” (Psalm 46:10a)
Amidst multiple brokenness, God shows up in one’s sobs and heartaches. Even in not making sense of daily personal pain and hurt, God is still very present. In tears and sorrow, one’s cries to God are heard. He reaches out through His love comforting those who have spiritual ears to hear Him.
As Jesus wept in the Garden of Gethsemane, God’s children weep over perplexing suffering. Yet just as the Father sent comfort to Jesus, God shows up in our garden of afflictions by comforting us through the power of the Holy Spirit. In brokenness, God ministers to the hearts of His broken-hearted children. He, alone, truly understands and cares!
“Be still, and know that I am God…” Psalm 46:10a
