    I feel broken inside.

    .. I ended a six year relationship with the love of my life. I wanted more than he could offer me. And this past weekend, my friend and I got into the biggest friendship-ending fight ever. I'm all alone now. And all I can hear are the harshest of words. All I feel deep down...

    I don't feel broken inside,

    I am broken inside. Just a empty vessel waiting to expire, often people around me throw out the line "that's life" or "just keep moving forward" but to be honest I feel like the only way for me to recover is death. This is not depression, because I don't feel down, I don't feel...

    God uses broken things beautifully.

    Broken clouds pour rain; Broken soil sets as field; Broken crop yields seed; Broken seed gives life to a new plant. In any hard situation, if you feel you are broken, understand that God is planning to utilize you for some great cause :)
