Broken male culture – part 4 – The causes of brokenness

Brokenness is caused by pain

Pain that is not processed

Pain that has been buried

 

The pain can be caused by so many things

Abuse, neglect, bullying, failures

Too many things to name can cause the pain

 

The side effect of brokenness

Is coping mechanisms, pain barriers

The masks we wear to protect ourselves

 

They can manifest themselves in so many ways

Anger, aggression, passivity, addition

Materialism, lust, shallowness, isolation …….

 

All these things, these false selves

Prevent our true selves from being known

The course of our lives perverted by lies

 

You have a true identity

One that is not based on a lie you believe to be true

You have a destiny, there is greatness within you

 

Only our heavenly Father can show you your true identity

He will speak into you & tell you who you are

If only you will allow him

 

You are loved, you are wanted

You are worthy of his love

Come just as you are, He loves you completely already

 

The Father loves you more than enough to accept you as you are now

However the Father loves you way too much

To want to allow you to stay in your brokenness

 

The cure for brokenness is forgiveness

Forgiveness leads to healing

Healing leads to freedom

 

If you say you cannot forgive

There is a good chance you are correct

However through the power of Christ you can

 

Cast your fears upon the Lord

He will bear your burden for you

And you will be free to begin anew

 

A fresh life

A guided life

A life of being fully loved

 

 

Then, when you are healed & living in freedom

Do not allow someone else’s brokenness

To prevent you from being who you were called to be
