Sarah Mae on Brokenness

“When you are broken enough and tired enough and angry enough that you just can’t mold yourself, fix yourself, do better, be better, when you are just done, grace is lavished on you like nothing you’ve ever experienced.

The world opens up and humility surrounds you and compassion overtakes you because you realize that life is just so hard and “everyone is facing a hard battle”, and instead of trying to be kind, you just become kind.

And you become grace to others.

Because that’s what the Spirit does in a broken beautiful one: He does the work, you just accept the molding.”

~Sarah Mae, author of Desperate: Hope for the Mom Who Needs to Breathe

  1. Oh…how I need to reach this point. I don’t like the road I must travel to do so, but I want so much to just “be” rather than “do” God’s grace to others!!
