The blessing of brokenness…

The Blessing of Brokenness
MICCA CAMPBELL

“Unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.” John 12:24 (NASB)

I clenched my teeth and closed my eyes as I waited for the explosion. My favorite lamp had fallen to the floor and smashed to smithereens. Somehow, in the scattered fragments I saw a picture of my own broken life.

As I carefully collected the shattered bits, tears stung my eyes and the pain of brokenness surfaced again. It’s a deep hurt. The kind not easily healed. My heart was crushed as if it had been stomped on, broken and discarded. Unable to progress in my work or relationships, I became a hostage to my own sadness. I felt weak and desperate for hope.

No one enjoys the pain of brokenness. Normally it calls for a letting go of something near and dear to us. At the time, it doesn’t make any sense. Yet, since the broken lamp, I have learned that brokenness leads to an unexpected good.

It’s for this reason that God breaks us. Not to cause us undue pain. Not because He doesn’t love us. Instead …

God breaks us to bless us.

He chips away anything that keeps us from finding our true life in Him.

God targets an area of our life that we’re unwilling to submit to Him. Perhaps it’s an unhealthy relationship we won’t release. It could be laziness that’s stunting our spiritual growth. Or even a bad habit that’s standing in the way of experiencing the fullness of God.

Whatever the cause, our tendency is to hold tightly to these things because we believe it’s what we want. We’re convinced they please us by providing the joy, pleasure and fulfillment we seek. But God knows the truth. Only He can truly satisfy our deepest longings. All else is counterfeit to His provision.

Therefore, God selects the tools it takes to break our self-sufficiency and cause us turn to Him. When we give up our independence, we gain a new perspective of God’s plan and purpose for our lives.

A great picture of this process is found in our key verse. “Unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit” (John 12:24).

Unless the kernel is buried and dies, it will produce nothing. It will remain a lone, solitary stalk of corn. Imagine passing a field that only hosted one blade of corn. You might ask, “Where’s the rest of this farmer’s harvest?” However, if the kernel dies, it will produce a great harvest.

Consider the life of Jesus. On earth, He was like a single stalk of corn. Yet, through His death, burial and resurrection, His life continually produces a harvest of souls.

In a similar way, as long as I live a selfish life fixed on my own wants and desires, I will produce little. On the other hand, if I die to myself and live according to God’s plan, I will yield a productive life that’s beneficial to God and others.

It sounds difficult, I know, but the unexpected good of brokenness is that it revives the life of Christ in me. I become less and He becomes more. That’s a good thing!

The more we become like Him, the more we become like the true selves God intended. The more love and patience I have in my heart, the more joyful and content I am with others.

Think of it this way. For the wheat to reproduce itself, it had to die. For Christ to reproduce Himself in others, He had to die. If I desire Christ’s life to be reproduced in me, I, too, must die to the lure of the world and my own selfishness. Then, I will experience the fullness of God I desire and reproduce disciples of the same kind. Jesus put it this way:

“For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it” (Matthew 16:25, NIV).

Sometimes God has to break me to bless me. As challenging as that can be, I’m thankful. Because honestly, I want the life God wants to give me instead of settling for the counterfeit.

God, help me die to the desires of this world and my selfishness that I might find the life You created for me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

TRUTH FOR TODAY:
John 12:25, “Those who love their life in this world will lose it. Those who care nothing for their life in this world will keep it for eternity.” (NLT)

The Bloodmoon of 28 September 2015

28 Sep

A few Spiritual thoughts about the Bloodmoon phenomena… “Just like the moon only reflects the light of the sun,so can we who follow the Lord only strive to reflect God’s light to humanity. But sin hampers our ability to share the Lord’s perfect love and light in this world. Just like the moon that turns dark when the earth(world) throws its shadow on it and comes between the sun and the moon,so does sin throw a shadow on our lives and it comes between us and Jesus.When I saw the dark moon/Bloodmoon on the morning of 28 September my heart was saddened and it looked like the whole Universe was mourning the greed and hatred of mankind. Only when Jesus comes to make all things new will we truly learn to love one another and not destroy this planet by our greed and pride.” Maranatha!

Rozanne (2) Rozanne (1) LEEU4SEPT15ROZANNA6069c0641d0e7fc LEEU4SEPT15ROZANNA96efa98a1d0e7f9Rozanne Visagie besoek Bloemfontein

 OIMG-20150905-WA0040 IMG-20150905-WA0011 IMG-20150905-WA0023 IMG-20150905-WA0024 IMG-20150909-WA0002

Op 14 Maart 2013 kyk ek die TV program “Rian” en die gas die aand was Rozanne  Visagie. Die aand word ek aangegryp deur ‘n vrou wat nie skroom om ‘n “statement’ te maak vir Jesus Christus nie. Die gedagte kom by my op: Dit sal “great” wees om haar Bloemfontein toe te bring…. Net ‘n gedagte.

Twee jaar later nadat ons omgee groep een aand saam gekuier het vra Pastoor Deon Bosch my of ek nie vir ons Manne iets wil reël nie

Ja en so gebeur dit, op ‘n koue lente oggend 3 September 2015 is ek en Deon oppad Lughawe toe om Rozanne te gaan haal….

Rozanne word ook gevra om Vrydag oggend 4 September om 05:45 die Manne bediening toe te spreek by “House of Bread.” Hierdie oggend gee sy so ‘n paar “tips” aan die manne om hulle vrouens net weer spesiaal te laat voel. Sy sing ook sommer ‘n paar “songs” waar die manne ook hartlik saam sing. Sy deel die gedeelte in 2 Kronieke 30:9 waar God soms sy gesig vir ons wegsteek. Dit kan wees a.g.v. sonde of omdat hy ons nader aan Hom wil trek. Na die verrigtinge word Rozanne ook deur die manne bedien. Ek prys die Here vir ‘n wonderlike tyd in sy teenwoordigheid.

Die dag van 3 September was egter nog nie verby vir Rozanne nie. Die oggend 10;00 het sy ‘n onderhoud met Radio Rosestad en so gesels sy toe met die hele Bloemfontein. Sy versoek ook sommer die Bloemfonteiners om die “ National Day of Repentance” op 13 September te ondersteun.

Saterdag 5 September spreek sy die Manne toe by die ontbyt wat deur AGS Jubilate gemeente gereël was. Natuurlik het die manne eers lekker geeët voordat Rozanne aan die woord was. Sy deel met ons die rol van sout as preserveer middel, sout maak ook gesond en maak ons dors vir die Lewende Water. Sy deel ook met ons “Faith” se storie. “Faith” in ‘n Voëltjie wat gereeld by hulle huis vroeg oggend kom sing en sy kaas kom soek…. En sy deel met ons die aanhaling: “Faith is the bird who feels the Light and sings while the dawn is still dark”. Direk na die verrigtinge  is daar’n uitnodiging en Rozanne bedien die manne met gebed en salf die wat  na vore kom.

 Die volgende dag 6 September was ons Gemeente AGS Jubilate aan die beurt.

Sy deel met ons God se liefde soos in 1 Johannes 4:7-9 en vers 18 en Johannes 15:9. So ook die gedeelte van die Lewende water opgeteken in Johannes 4: 7-13 en Johannes 7:37- 39. Rozanne deel ook by al drie geleenthede tydens die naweek oor wat Vader in Sy groot genade in haar en haar gesin se lewens gedoen het ,met ‘n kort persoonlike getuienis.

Daar was nog soveel “blessings” oor die hele naweek … te veel om op te noem. Die res van die naweek was ek en Wicus, wat my gehelp het met die reëlings, oorval met met boodskappe van mense wat vertel hoe hulle verryk is deur die die naweek se bedienning.

Ek kon maar net stil word voor my Hemelse Vader en hom loof en prys vir sy wonderlike genade. Ek het net weereens besef dat ons moet wees wat Paulus skryf in 2 Kor 3: 2-3. Julle is self ons aanbevelingsbrief, geskryf op ons harte, vir almal om te lees en te verstaan. Dit is tog duidelik dat julle ‘n brief van Christus is, deur ons diens geskrywe, nie met ink nie, maar met die Gees van die lewende God, nie op klip nie maar op die harte van mense.

Rozanne baie dankie vir die opoffering weg van jou geliefdes en die seëninge wat ons deur jou bedienning van die Here ontvang het.

Shalom

Bert
