The Blessing is in the Broken

When bad stuff happens you got two choices you run away from God, or run to Him.

I heard Bishop TD Jakes say recently. “The blessing is in the broken… Christianity is one beggar telling another beggar where he found the bread. That's what makes our walk authentic. When you share what worked for you with other people."

Throughout the month of May, that’s exactly what you can do.  Share the Blessings in Disguise in your life on my page at, and hopefully you will encourage someone else going through the same thing.

If I share your story, you’ll win Laura Story’s devotional “What if Blessings come through Raindrops” and her CD “Blessings”. 

Like Marie did today.  She’s the first winner.  I loved her story. 

“I was attending a Christian college, wanting to be a missionary when my fiancé and I made a mistake and got pregnant.  We married and had our baby and I learned that my husband was not who I thought he was.  He kicked my 6 month old and I out of the house when I learned of his affair and asked for a divorce.  That was 2 years ago.  Laura Story’s song, Blessings, has helped me through this rough time and about a month ago, I was sitting in church and God gave me a vision during worship that he is going to send my son and I to Congo.  That day, a good friend told me that God wanted her to to me that God has treasures for my life that I don’t even yet know about.  I feel like my mistakes took me off the track God designed for my life.  God is saying, “I’ve got my little girl back and now we can start working on this dream I have for her life.”

Picture Perfect

You know how you have one of those friends.  No matter how many miles apart you live, or how many years it’s been since you’ve seen each other, when you do you pick up right where you left off.

I am so thankful for one of those friends today.  My friend, Chante, came to visit this weekend.

We were talking about, in the course of our decade of friendship, how life has changed.  We’ve been through single-hood, having kids, moves across the country, and divorce.  She’s been like a rock through all the changes.

When I started to complain a bit about how my family dynamic doesn’t feel picture perfect anymore.

She said, “A picture perfect life is attainable, just the contents of everyone’s picture is different.” 

Tell me about your lifelong friend…
