The Broken Egg

After being broken, the bones become even stronger. Guess it's true for the broken in spirits. We've got to move on with greater strength and courage.
can't use an egg unless it is broken

God rescues us by breaking us, by shattering our strength and wiping out our resistance. ~A. W. Tozer 

Leave the broken, irreversible past in God's hands, and step out into the invincible future with Him. ~Oswald Chambers 

God uses broken things. It takes broken soil to produce a crop, broken clouds to give rain, broken grain to give bread, broken bread to give strength. It is the broken alabaster box that gives forth perfume. It is Peter, weeping bitterly, who returns to greater power than ever. ~Vance Havner 

The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. ~Psalm 34:18
