We all have issues; we all have things we deal with, and sometimes those burdens feel too weighty to bear.
It is easy to let troubling times, guilt, shame, family issues, health issues, etc. overwhelm us, making us feel broken. We are imperfect people in a broken world, but that doesn't mean we are unloved. God sees us in our brokenness and loves us anyway. It is amazing that we have a God who can heal our brokenness and love us despite our flaws when the world wants to point these things out. Not only does God love us despite our brokenness, He even heals our brokenness.
God promises forgiveness and love surpassing any trouble in this life. As you go about your week, be encouraged by the loving words of God as He restores your soul.

We are broken, but God still takes "great delight" in us. He "rejoices over us with singing." God loves us so much despite all the junk we have in our lives. There is nothing we can do, or that anyone can do to us, that will separate us from the love of God.

Even our brokenness is for God's good. God can take the bad things in life and use them for His purposes. This is often outside of our comprehension as humans, but we only have a limited view of God's ultimate plan. God is using your brokenness for His good, now and always.
