Your Brokenness Story

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_video link=”″ align=”center” css_animation=”slideInLeft” title=”Brokenness, Day 7″][vc_column_text]Today:

Tell your own story.

  1. What broke you?
  2. How did it hurt?
  3. What did you learn, or are you learning?

Paradoxically, God will  story of brokenness far more powerfully than your stories of success. It’s a Kingdom thing.

I would love it if you would share your story with me. Shoot a short 2-4 minute video and upload it to my dropbox by clicking the link below. With your permission, I will share these with the Anchorpoint community. Don’t be shy. Your story may be exactly what someone else needs. [/vc_column_text]

    Sorry, I don’t share videos of myself – in fact, I’m pretty bad at just plain selfies…

    What broke me? A series of unfortunate events. Cancer. A genetic condition. Pain for the rest of my life. Loss of hope. Doctors over medicating me to the point of becoming catatonic. Loss of health. Drug induced depression. Then, abuse – of my kids and myself. Divorce. Loss of friends. Empty nest. Poverty. Exhaustion. I’m broken.

    How did it hurt? It hurts every day. Physically. Mentally. Emotionally. Spiritually. Financially. Socially. How does it NOT hurt???

    What did I learn? I learned not to trust. I learned not to hope. I learned not to feel. I learned how to be my own doctor. I learned not to expect. I learned I have no friends. I learned church is no help. I learned people can’t handle someone else’s tragedy. I learned “yo in charge o’ yo’self, ’cause no one else is gonna help yo”.

    I really learned that I may sound bitter, but I’m not. I’m really just broken. To smithereens. And no one is willing to help pick up my pieces, so I have to pick them up myself. And it’s going to take me forever to put them together. And I’m not going to. I’m just going to live with the fragments I have left. And hope the end comes sooner rather than later. And that, my friends, is true brokenness.

    Dianne, reading your story of brokenness made my heart hurt. I’m deeply sorry for what you have endured. We have all gone through some type of brokenness, but it seems you received an extra dose. I hope through this group you find relief & eventually healing for your brokenness. Your fellow group members will be there in prayer, support & encouragement.
