“That which refuses to be broken refuses to be blessed. It is the breaking of life that produces the blessing of life. I have noticed that the most blessed people have gone through something that broke them.” ~ Bishop T.D. Jakes
I would add that while we may think (or feel) that we are broken, God or the Universe or whatever higher power you believe in, knows better, knows that we’re just ready for that blessing of strength, of awareness, of understanding.
