What do u do when you are broken in ministry

Welcome to Worthy Chozen.

I try to remember passages such as...

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
(2Co 12:9-10)

Watchman Nee wrote a book called The Release of The Spirit.  It shows how when we are broken and humbled, then Christ can be seen in us.  Give it all to Jesus.

 Mat 12:20  a bruised reed he will not break,
and a smoldering wick he will not quench,
until he brings justice to victory;

 Mat 12:21  and in his name the Gentiles will hope.”

 Psa 51:17  The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit;
a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.

Perhaps your brokenness will give you a greater capacity for having empathy and sympathy for others.  Perhaps it will cause a slower rush to judgement about others that are having problems.

You know I learned that years ago... when you go through so much it makes you very empathetic and definitely less judgmental...

Thanks that was very encouraging...

Either rejoice in the brokenness, since holding treasure in a clay jar that is broken, the treasure spills out to work life in others via the death in you, or step away from ministry, on a temporary or eternal basis.
