Thanking God for broken hearts

“We are not sanctified for ourselves.

The first thing God does is get us grounded on strong reality and truth. He does this until our cares for ourselves individually have been brought into submission to His way for the purpose of His redemption. Why shouldn’t we experience heartbreak? Through these doorways God is opening up ways of fellowship with His Son. If God can accomplish His purposes in this world through a broken heart, then why not thank Him for breaking yours?

You are not your own.”
-from My Utmost for His Highest, by Oswald Chambers

That’s quite an interesting way of thinking about it, huh? What are your thoughts?
