Brokenness implies being brought low...to the valley. For example, seldom would a picture on the wall crack while it's hanging beneath its glowing art light, but let it get knocked to the floor, then the glass shatters, and the frame bends askew. The fall caused the break, but it's from the low place that it gets picked up, a new glass put in, and the frame glued back together. The same hands that lifted it to the nail in the wall in the first place are the ones to piece it back together and rehang it in the light. These hands did not swipe it to the floor.
Like the photo, we can find ourselves up-ended, knocked to the bottom, broken, shattered, with everything that seemed so certain suddenly askew. But that's not a bad place to be. It's there, in the valley, that we can experience a different kind of touch: the mending, healing, restoring caress of God.
Tip/Tidbit: The valley is a place of nourishment. Deuteronomy 8:7 says, "For the Lord thy God bringeth thee into a good land of brooks of water of fountains and depths that spring out of the valley..." Everything needed for sustaining life is in the valley, but when we are in the valley, it is easy to overlook the blessings in it. Don't wait for the trouble to end; look for the good in the trouble. Drink from the refreshing fountain of Living Water. See the beauty of Jesus, the Lilly of the Valley (Song of Solomon 2:2). Note multitudes in their own valleys and point them to the Savior (Joel 3:13-14). Feast on God's provision, rest in His peace, and trust the Shepherd to lead you (Psalm 23). Expect new life, even if the valley your are currently in is one of dry bones (Ezekiel 37). Trouble may have brought you to the valley, but you are in a good place. Here, your brokenness can be scooped into the hands of the Restorer. In His healing hands, you can be made new.
