Broken people who were in fact broken by others need to heal. The Lord can heal all psychological and emotional wounds including the deepest and darkest.
If you are broken, give yourself time to heal before rushing into another relationship. If you do not do that, you might in fact be creating a soup that can boil others. You might break others without even wanting to. The reason is that you were not emotionally healthy or whole enough to trust, sacrifice and love again.
If you meet a broken person who wants a relationship with you, be very careful. It will be wise if you can recognize the red flags and signs of emotional unavailability and draw back. Give him or her a chance to heal and grow before embarking on a fruitless journey.
Guard your hearts jealousy – there are so many damaged and broken people out there and they were all damaged and broken by humans not aliens! Don’t be a victim.
Yes, we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves but in God who raises the dead, (2 Corinthians 1:9 NKJV)
Who delivered us from so great a death, and does deliver us; in whom we trust that He will still deliver us, (2 Corinthians 1:10 NKJV)
God is the one that takes us on the journey of loosing self trust. Self trust is our greatest enemy and a fierce enemy of God. Self trust takes God’s glory and attributes it to self. God therefore, permits events and circumstances that will make us realize that the arm of flesh always fails man.
By the time the flesh disappoints us over and over again and we gain wisdom, we then run to God with open arms and total surrender to Him, His grace and His power.
May God by His grace, lead us away from self dependence into God dependence and total surrender to Christ.
