Joining with LisaJo Baker for FMF today. Today’s word is broken.

Want to know how Five Minute Friday got started? Checkout the back story over here.

Want to join our favorite free writing exercise of the week? It’s easy and open to anyone.

1. Write for 5 minutes flat on the prompt: “Broken” with no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to please visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community.

He was broken
beaten for us
for our sin
the daily stuff we do that separates us from Him
the stuff we do that causes chasms between friends and family members
the things we do that cause us heartache & pain
the things that we do that cause us to be broken

He chose to be broken for our brokenness
He chose to be broken so that He might fix the relationship between us
He chose to be broken to bring us back home

He chose us
in our broken state
and longs for you to choose Him

Today i pray that you would choose Him
that you would accept His payment for your sin
that we would turn from our unrighteousness and to His open, loving arms
Today i prayed that you would choose to be broken for Him and allow Him to lift you up and mend you
