Being OK with Brokenness

The Lord has allowed my brokenness to surface in a way that has made me feel cornered and angry. Large swaths of my soul are barren, shown in my lack of energy, hope and creativity in day to day life. It is a major task, for example, to work through a deep book. I have to take it in almost pathetically small chunks.

I need to read more Brennan Manning, Peter Scazerro and Terry Wardle. They always help me bring my brokenness to God. My default response is to try and hide it from myself and others, even God. Which is why I hardly talk to him anymore (it seems).
