Brokenness can feel very different to people depending on their circumstances and emotions. Some brokenness stays with us long term, while other kinds are situational and can quickly pass.

Where do you see yourself in the definition below? Ask Holy Spirit to highlight if there is any broken places within that you have been unaware of until now. Sit with Him there, as you acknowledge the spaces which need renovation inside of you.

Tomorrow, we will bring that brokenness to the Father, and ask Him to speak healing into it.
