“The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.” Psalm 51:17
I believe in the power of personal testimony. I believe that God uses our broken pasts to impact other’s futures. I believe that what was once broken can be made beautiful in the hands of Almighty God. And so does she. It’s not often that I get to share a story of someone with such a public influence. Although I don’t know her personally, her story has impacted my life. Her Story today is a little different than ones in the past. It’s a short video detailing just a glimpse of her incredible story, a story that points to the truth that broken is beautiful. Take a few minutes, click on the link below, and be blessed by Her Story.
Now that you’ve seen and heard the incredible back story to Shuree’s life, check out her music on iTunes. A singer and songwriter, she has produced some incredibly inspired, worshipful, upbeat songs that I’m certain will bless you. In particular, be sure to check out her song “Broken is Beautiful”, inspired by the story you just watched. If there’s one truth I’ve learned over the time I’ve spent walking with the Lord, it’s this:
My circumstances do not alter God’s character. He’s always good. The difficulty in my life does not change the fact that God is consistently good, and He makes beautiful things out of our surrendered lives. He makes beauty from ashes. He has certainly done just that in Shuree’s life, and He is ready and willing to do the same in yours.
