Brokenness

"The LORD is near to the brokenhearted And saves those who are crushed in spirit."
Psalm 34:18
- - - 

Brokenness is the mark of  a person who is qualified to be used by God.  If you are not broken then you are using yourself for your own personal efforts, your own personal dreams and your own personal passions. At the end of the day, people that are actually being used of God in a crazy way and in an off the meter way are people that have been cracked up, who have been lunged at by God.  And God has done something to them. 

-Eric Mason

 "But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus' sake, so that his life may be revealed in our mortal body. So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you."
1Corinthians 4:7-12
