Trust falling despite your brokenness

One of the hardest lessons I have learned when at my most broken is that my brokenness does not hide me from His sight.

God is with & for us through ALL the ups and downs of this life, even when lying voices scream otherwise, circumstances seem bleak, and I feel unseen in the midst of my broken spaces.

Choosing to trust that what God says is truth when you can’t see or feel any evidence in the hard moments has been a huge leap of faith, but God has never failed to catch me when I trust fall into His embrace.

I was a young teen when my mom’s only sister died of breast/lymph cancer, and I remember the pain and relationship brokenness which arose from that situation. It left a scar which I had most forgotten about until recently.

Turning the big 5-0 required me to get a mammogram a few weeks ago. Not a big deal, until I got called back for a second one, and a very painful ultrasound on my left breast. I was told it was likely just because one side is denser than the other.

My mind began to wander to what ifs, and the scar of losing my aunt revealed itself. Could it be genetic? Breast cancer? And as I cried out to God in that moment of brokenness when I faced the unknown, and all the fears it inspired, God spoke peace into me through a few worship songs, but mainly through His Word.

I found out yesterday that I do have a swollen lymph node with no signs of cancer, something that can be easily treated by a lymph drainage massage.

And through this wait, God healed me of a broken space within that needed to be gently faced and given over to Him.

May these verses bring you closer to Him in your broken places as well, as you choose faith over fear, trust over sight, and proclaim your victory before the breakthrough arrives.

  1. Delighted to hear you have no cancer issues, Karla.

    If you had only asked me…..Aunty Fran died of melanoma which is not genetic. I found this out a number of years ago when I had a lump ( non cancerous as well!)



    Numbers 6: 24-26
