The term, “broken home”, is used to define a family in which the parents have divorced. I understand the labeling and agree. However, the definition goes beyond a marriage that has ended in divorce. There are many other contributing factors that are worthy of consideration in a broken home situation.
Every family has a level of brokenness. You might have been brought up in a single-parent home or with no parents and your home was provided by the state. You may have been raised in a blended family. Or, maybe you grew up in a Christian family with biological parents who sacrificed to provide the things that you needed to grow and become a healthy adult.
No matter what kind of family you grew up with, brokenness has a way of finding you. Its agenda is to assassinate your giftedness and God’s purpose for your life. The silver spoon can quickly turn into the knife that is used to assault the promise of Jeremiah 29:11, God’s plan to prosper you and give you hope and a future. When you allow the enemy to continue providing condolences to the broken places of your life, you are only delaying your arrival to the place of God’s wholeness. Lick your wounds and release the roar on the inside of you.
