Broken

I really have no idea where to begin this post.  It seems as though there has been something on everyone's base here lately.  Actually, throughout the summer.  But we have made it thus far.  Only because of God's mighty hand and guidance.  Last Sunday evening as the preacher was flipping channels (as he often does), he stopped to listen to Bishop T.D. Jakes.  His sermon caught my attention.  So much so that Monday I had to go to www.youtube.com to find it and hear the whole thing. "Save the Scraps" is the title.  Let me just say I haven't found my socks yet.  Talk about being blown away.   You can go to the website and watch for yourself, but only if you are brave and want someone walking on your toes and blessing you at the same time.  In it, he is speaking on Jesus feeding the five thousand plus some.  Short of the long that got my attention is he said the blessings come with the breaking.  Matthew 14:19 "Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves." And as Mr. Jakes said "that is when we lose count." 

 For a week now I have pondered that scripture and the statement.  "We must be willing to be broken if we want to be blessed."  "He also stated that until we are thankful for something that is not enough then what you have can't be multiplied into something that is more than enough." 

So my question to you is this,  When was the last time you allowed Him to break you in order to bless you?  And when was the last time you thanked Him for something that just wasn't meeting your expectations? 

There is more to his sermon and I encourage you to watch, listen, and be blessed by it.  It just might change your outlook on being broken.
