I'd say about 8 years into my own insanity of this life, I was at the gym once again, trying to get some excercise for my health. I was in despair, a really dark place of just being near tears in ongoing sadness... and a young woman walked by with a book in her hand. I saw the title somewhat, I can't recall the details now, but at that time I think I saw "Stanley" or "Brokenness", maybe both.
I was drawn to talk to her, I really wanted to know what that book was about, but she was a younger attractive woman and I am mid-forties... I was concerned she'd think I was trying to hit on her, etc. I finally decided to talk to her and asked about the book, saying I'd noticed the title and knew Charles Stanley. She said, "Oh, you can have it. I've read it and God told me to bring it here for someone." That's exactly what she said, and then she handed me the book.
We ended up having a great conversation and she had suffered a tough situation of her own. I read that book, and after 8 years of mystery, basically 'knowing' but never fully being 100% sure why all the troubles were happening, God finally and clearly told me that is WAS all about brokenness.
My problems were not happening simply because I was evil, or a failure (a HUGE one for men in general), a bad husband, a sinner in general, weak or a corward, or really ANY fault of my own.Read more ›
There is another book that is helping me to cope, Write from Your Heart, A Healing Grief Journal.
Immersing myself in the word has made a huge difference in the way I am healing.
