Heart Broken




"Dear God, help me to put aside the things that are breaking my heart, to pray about the things that break yours"

Let's be honest... This quote smack anyone in the face? Well it just so happened to slap me in the face, punch me in the stomach, and then pants me in front of the whole school. 

I have been so consumed with my own issues lately, that I've literally had no time to concern myself with anyone else's problems. How completely selfish and arrogant I have been!

It's not that I don't believe God is concerned with the condition of my heart, but it seems that the condition of my heart has caused me to be less concerned with the matters of God's heart. 

Is God not big enough to not only heal me of my brokenness but simultaneously give me the strength and compassion to offer someone else hope? Have I limited God by solely focusing on myself instead of asking God to direct my focus? 

I am not saying that God doesn't allow us time to heal when we are broken, but I have started to become convicted that it's time to start allowing my heart to be broken for a higher purpose, rather than the temporary problems of this world. 

"Break my heart for what breaks yours, everything I am for Your kingdom's cause"

Maybe, just maybe, by allowing God to break my heart, somewhere in the midst I will find healing.

"My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart, my portion forever" Psalm 73:26

  1. The amazing part about God is that when we focus on others needs our own seem to work themselves out! It is definitely easier said than done though :)

What is Paigerific? I’m glad you asked, although I don’t have an exact definition to offer. Paigerific is my thoughts and my heart. Paigerific is my passion and my fear. Paigerific is my success and my failures. Paigerific is my blood, sweat, and tears. Paigerific is more than just simply word. It’s a million different words all rolled into one. Words like hope, grace, determination, imperfection, love, faith, insecurity… The one word I would use to describe myself? I am Paigerific.
