I don’t know. Day 3.

If you missed yesterday’s post, read that first. Each post this week will build on one another.

Have you started a Covid-19 journal yet? If not, start there. Go and order a fancy journal on Amazon if that would motivate you. I usually just grab an old notebook. Staple some loose paper together if that’s all you have. After this is all over, you will be glad you kept a journal during this time.

Yesterday I mentioned that at the heart of surrender is brokenness. I asked you to process through three questions. 1. What words come to mind when you think of brokenness? 2. Have you ever felt this way? 3. Why do you think brokenness is at the heart of surrender?

I don’t believe that you can truly surrender until you come to a place of brokenness. For a lot of us (like me) we had to hit rock bottom in order to experience spiritual brokenness. I don’t believe that is always the case.

We are going dig a little deeper over the next few days about what I mean when I refer to brokenness. Here is the best definition of spiritual brokenness I have found. I found it on deeptruths.com

Definition: “In the positive spiritual sense, brokenness is the condition of being completely subdued and humbled before the Lord, and as a result, completely yielded to and dependent upon Him also.”

Journal questions for today:

What parts of this definition do you agree or disagree with?

What words stick out to you?

More tomorrow,

Lisa
