I've been thinking about the meaning of brokenness today and why God loves it so much. Brokenness is a state of powerlessness. A place where pride has no standing. A condition that allows God to work and His spirit to move. Brokenness is a good place to be. Despair is not.
Despair is when you've lost all hope. Despair is from the devil. The words even begin with the same letter. As does doubt, discouragement, demise, depression.
Brokenness is a beautiful place to be. Where God's bountiful blessings can be bestowed upon the broken person. So when tempted to allow despair to set it, seek brokenness instead.
