blessing and brokenness.

Have you ever had one of those days where you keep hearing the same lesson over and over again?  {I am having one of those mornings…and also one of those mornings that coffee’s power is no match for my present sleepiness…}

While at work I try to listen to sermons online. {if you have any suggestions for your favorite preachers please fill me in! I’m always looking for new online sermons!}  Not only do these messages surround me with positivity and teaching, but they also help me keep my sanity!  This morning I listened to one of my favorite pastors, Steven Furtick of Elevation Church in North Carolina and a new favorite, Charles Stanley.  They both spoke messages of how we all experience many trials and brokenness throughout life.  It is ultimately realized that our brokenness leads to both knowing God more fully and experiencing God’s magnificent blessing.

Pastor Steven quoted A.W. Tozer, “It is doubtful whether God can bless a man greatly until He has hurt him deeply, in his message.  I believe that the truth of that statement is monumentally profound for every single life {Christian or not}.

I have certainly experienced this truth in my life, especially recently.  I have blogged about my story through my brokenness and into my blessing before, so I thought that this morning I would let the preachers do the teaching!

I hope that you take the time to listen to these Godly men and that God will speak through them into your life.  You can click on the links to see Pastor Steven’s message and hear Charles’ radio message. {oh and make sure you check out the other messages at Elevation Church…they are all beyond awesome!}

Have a fantastic day everyone!
