“Chosen, Blessed, Broken, Given”

Henri Nouwen/ 4 words Describe JESUS & All Genuine Christians.

“Took (Chose), Blessed, Broke, Gave

Feeding 5000, Last Supper, Emmaus Road

1. CHOSEN: I am CHOSEN by God! I am PRECIOUS. I am DIFFERENT & UNIQUE. God can use ORDINARY PEOPLE!

2. BLESSED: God has a wonderful PLAN for my life! God believes in me, even before I believe IN HIM!.

3. BROKEN: What do we do with our brokenness? We should dare TO EMBRACE our brokenness. Yes, I am WOUNDED! I don’t DENY or DISCOUNT it. I don’t have to be AFRAID . If I embrace brokenness, it can become a BLESSING !

4. GIVEN: Now I can GIVE and SERVE others. For as I deny myself & lose myself, I find MYSELF.

NOW WHAT Prayer: Sometimes I feel so ordinary & small that I don’t think that anything I could do would make any difference! But like the little child at the feeding of the 5000, I will give Jesus what I have, & who I am, & trust that He will Bless, Break, And Serve it as a Chosen blessing.

• That’s How It is with God

• We try so hard, but results aren't graceful flowing music.

• Touch of Master’s Hand Brings Beauty out of Brokenness!

• God seems to EQUIP the Called

• AVAILABILITY / ABILITY!

Remember, God doesn't seem to

call the equipped, rather, He equips the 'called.'

Life is more accurately measured by the lives you touch than by the things you acquire.
