What to do When You Are Broken

Nakatambay ka ba? 
Nakatambay ka ba sa problema na dapat ay dinadaanan mo lang?

Hi Friends, here's wanting to share with you once more in gratitude, my personal notes and reflections too, on last Sunday's  2nd Talk entitled FLOW of the Series LeakHow To Heal Others Through Our Brokenness by our Guest Builder Bro Jann Silan @ The Feast SM Santa Rosa, Cinema 1.    

Sometimes, we feel so broken, that we tend to uncontrollably LEAK!

It is during these times that we should remember: 
"When your breaking happens, that's not God punishing you 
-- that's God saving you."

"Sa mga panahon na hindi mo na kaya, 
Kaninong kamay ang gumagalaw sa buhay mo?
Kung di mo naiintindihan kung bakit ka broken ngayon,
Alamin mo kung sino ang may hawak sa buhay mo"  -- Jann Silan

When you are broken, God wants you to:

1. Devote your time to prayer. 

When you pray, your brokenness will lead you to openness. 
     You become more open to God. 

2. Rest

Kailan ka ba huling nagpahinga? 
     Allow God to comfort you. 

     "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion 
     and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort 
     those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God." -- 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 

3. Embrace 

  Sometimes your brokenness happen because you allowed your weaknesses 
     to break    you. Yes, you commit mistakes because you tolerated instances 
     that used up your inequities. 

     Do not be anxious though, embrace that loving truth 
     that God sacrificed so much for your sake. 

     “He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, 
     so that we might die to sins and live   for righteousness; 
     “by his wounds you have been healed.-1Peter 2:24

4. Utilize

     Avail your perks in relationships. 
     Nandyan lang naman sila, wag mong ilayo ang sarili mo para lalo kang 
     magkamali-mali sa mga decisions mo.

     Don't wait 'till you loose them, then just cry over some spilled milk.  
     You won't appreciate their presence not until you're broken. 

Appreciate life
Appreciate your relationships. 
At the end of it all
You would ask yourself 
Did I truly love? -- Jann Silan

5. Surrender

     What is God's will for you? 

     While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, 
     he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, 
     "Take and eat; this is my body." -- Matthew 26:26

     God has been offering Himself to you -- why keep up with that PRIDE? 
     Choosy ka pa?!!!
     Stop resisting God's mercy and compassion! 
     If there is pride in your life, you will have a breaking. 
     It is pride that causes you to fall -- so what are you waiting for? 
     -- give up your pride before you fall !!!

At the end of it all, 'di mo kailangang tumambay in your brokenness.
Your scars will connect with others' stories if you let your learnings from it FLOW!

Your wound is an empty space for Jesus to dwell.  
Revealing your wounds to others, and allowing them to see Jesus hidden in these wounds, 
becomes a light to the world. -- Bro. Bo Sanchez
