"Broken" - Five Minute Friday

On 5 Minute Fridays there are 3 Rules:
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 at  & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community.


I fall to my knees with tears streaming down my face. I can't take much more. My heart is breaking over and over again. I'm not allowed to talk about it. It is a banned topic in our house. Broken friendships, broken relationships that keep rearing their pasts and presents in my face. I miss the ease that was before and I cry for the rough that is the now. Do they know how broken they have left us? Do they even care? The only person left to take it to is God. Beg for healing of hearts and minds. Beg for forgiveness to come. Beg for peace of mind. Because "broken" is what we have become. God will mend. God will put it back together. And through the cracks we will still shine for him. But we will forever be broken. 

Linking up today with The Gypsy Mama.

  2. I love how you said that we can still shine through the's how He brings beauty from broken. Beautiful post, Laura. Praying you have a blessed Easter!

  3. "I miss the ease that was before and I cry for the rough that is the now." I love this line. Many believe that as Christ followers our life will be easy but it isn't. Yet, we know that we can take it to Him. (Linking from FMF)
