Every great movement of God is preceded by a season of humility and repentance and a time of tearing down walls, of getting honest with God and others about your true spiritual condition.
It may be hard. It may hurt. But in the end, God will use your brokenness to restore your "first love" for Jesus, rekindle your spiritual fire, reconcile your relationships, and repair your life.
A richer, deeper, more God-filled life is waiting for you. And it all begins with Brokenness.

Excerpt from Brokenness by Nancy Leigh DeMoss
I believe one of the reasons many believers are afraid of the idea of brokenness is that they have misconceptions about what brokenness really means. As is true in so many other areas, our idea of brokenness and God's idea of brokenness are usually quite different. For example, some people think of brokenness as always being sad or gloomy. Others think of brokenness as being morbidly introspective: "Oh, woe is me! I've confessed every sin I can possibly think of; but surely there must be something I've missed. Oh, what a worm I am!" False humility and morbid introspection are, in fact, the opposite of brokenness, as they reveal a preoccupation with self, rather than Christ. So what is true brokenness? Someone has said that brokenness, like a fragrance, is easier to detect than to define.
