Things that are broken must be healed

Updated on February 26, 2014

Often people are trying to find that place where they can go and be safe from all the turmoil they deal with on a daily basis. Its not hard to discover that place once you have identified the comfort within. Finding that place for some may be hard if they have yet to discover themselves. Discovering who you are play an important role in learning how to identify changes within that yields reactions they may not be familiar. Learning what tick your tock or as the old folks say; what floats your boat could be the very thing that save your life.

How well do you know yourself? Do you know what makes you cry or what make you sad at night? Knowing these few simple things about you will teach you to cope with everyday crisis.

Here are basic questions you should be able to answer about yourself.

1. What keeps me from lashing out?

2. What do I hate the most about my life? (This question is changeable. Meaning ,honesty in this area could show you where you need to begin the phase of moving from being broken, to broke, to being whole again. Also, this question is really hard for people to answer because they are not often aware of what is really causing them to feel the way they do.)

3. How often do you spend time evaluating your life. Not comparing yourself to others situations and problems but dealing with your own.

4. Where does God play a role in your life.

These are four basic and easy questions that must be answered to help move you from being broken, to broke, then to being heal again.

What does it mean to be broken

Being broken means to lack a basic survival component. This component may be faith. If your faith is not where it needs to be could be the thing that stands between you and life. The bible teaches us a lot of necessary things, but what keeps the word of God from activating is faith. Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. This means I can't see the healing in my life just yet, however, believing by faith its coming. Having faith will get your prayers answered faster. How do I know this? Because the bible says that without faith it is impossible to please God.

What does it mean to be broke

After reading about being broken you are probably wondering why broke is being associated as a phase when we just discussed broken. Seeing that its closely associated with broke, broke means empty. Remembering the meaning of broken as lacking basic survival needs. Essentially they are the same words but are used differently when trying to overcome life situations. Its easy to see the two words, but hard to identify it with concerning your life and the cycle you may be going through.

Becoming healed from the past is easy. By recognizing where you are in you life right know makes all the difference. Acknowledging within yourself that you have areas in your life that are still tender is 80 percent of your healing. Think about the woman with the issue of Blood in the bible, I honestly believe that her healing lied in her ability to fully identify with her faith. She knew that if she could just touch the helm, her entire life would be altered and was. Crazy faith! Getting that close gave her access to his entire body. Desperately, unknowingly, she had access to his entire body but just wasn't selfish. Humbly felt worthy of only the helm. Faith the size of a mustard seed will move mountains. Her faith played a huge part.


Faith is a huge component in trying to be healed. Life and death lies in the power of the tongue as we are taught. If it were that simple you would think the world would be filled with healed people. Unfortunately, this is a faith healing. Being able to use your tongue to heal yourself lies in the power within.

Psalm 34:18 ESV

The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.

Psalm 51:17 ESV

The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.

Psalm 147:3 ESV

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
