Brokenness: The Heart God Revives
This book is not yet featured on Listopia. As that great poet T. Ten years ago, I saw a First Nations Christian broadcast here in Canada about an amazing aboriginal musical duo, a longtime husband and wife team. They had lost everything in a house fire, including the very frame of the house itself. Her face was a bit disfigured by skin grafts because of it.
And the face of this strong Cree woman radiated pure JOY. And, you know – Bert recommended this book, in fact! I bought it, still reeling, myself, from a workplace near-burnout.
And I read it. Because Some One much greater than us wants to take over the driver’s seat. If the Bad Guys break us, guess what? And once He does that, WE can once again be ordinary and simple again, with the gift of a brand new and much gentler spirit. The medieval Buddhist writer Dogen was asked if permanent change in our complicated human nature is even remotely possible.
It all depends on our attitude. But it takes a while. Our complicated outer husk – which the modern media exalts to no end – has to wither away and expose the seed of a new life beneath.
What have we LOST? Hey, remember Piet Hein? So Nancy Leigh deMoss says. So, when our card house collapses, just go with the flow. Those card houses are WAY too complicated anyway! Otherwise known as Reality! View all 8 comments. Nov 15, Austin Rich rated it it was amazing.
In the words of Harrison Shockley, this book will “rip your heart out, chop it into pieces, grind those pieces into powder, and then feed it to you. It realigns our heart with the LORD’s by reminding us that we are ridden with pride. Now you may be thinking, “I don’t really struggle with pride that much.
Mar 29, Amanda Tero rated it it was amazing. I first read this book about six years ago, and it was very good then. I just re-read or listened to it.
Yes, it was just as good as I remembered.
In essence, this is a book about confronting pride in its many forms, and breaking self of its fleshly tendencies. The truths in it are very clearly applicable to any season of life, any walk of life.

Brokenness: The Heart God Revives by Nancy Leigh DeMoss
Nov 30, Reid rated it really liked it Recommends it for: DeMoss begins her book recording an event that occurred in at a Campus Crusade for Christ staff meeting of four thousand people. A wave of revival yeart the form of confession and repentance swept through the group for a number of days and lives were changed. This book on brokenness and humility has changed the way I think about myself, my sin, and God’s provision of Jesus’ sacrifice.
She gives quite a list of the way that “Proud People” look at others, God, sin and so on.
At least in my culture DeMoss begins her book recording an event that occurred in at a Campus Crusade for Christ staff meeting of four thousand people. At least in my culture, looking at things the way I do, I come up pretty short. It is pretty revealing. I am a pretty proud person, in a lot of ways.
This I am sure is not a comprehensive list but it is enough for me to review and be draw back to God with a deep sense of poverty of spirit.
Attitudes Toward Others 1. Proud people have a critical, faultfinding spirit. Proud people are especially prone to criticize those in positions of authority: Proud people are self-righteous; they think highly of themselves and look down on others Broken people think the best of other; they esteem others as better than themselves. Proud people have an independent, self-sufficient spirit Broken people have a dependent spirit; they recognize their need for God and for others Attitudes About Rights 6.
Proud people have to prove that they are right — they have to get the last word Broken people are willing to yield the right to be right 7. Proud people claim rights and have a demanding spirit Broken people yield their rights and have a meek spirit 8.
Proud people are self-protective of their time, their rights, and their reputation Broken people are self-denying and self-sacrificing Attitudes About Service and Ministry 9. Proud people desire to be served — they want life to revolve around them and their own needs. Proud people desire to be broken as a success Broken people are motivated to be faithful and to make others successful Proud people crave self-advancement Broken people desire to promote others Proud people have a drive to be recognized and appreciated for their efforts Broken people have a sense of their own unworthiness; they are thrilled that God would use them at all.
Proud people get wounded when others are promoted and they are overlooked Broken people are eager for others to get the credit, and they rejoice when others are lifted up Proud people are elated by praise and deflated by criticism Broken people know that any praise of their accomplishments belongs to the Lord and that criticism can help them grow into spiritual maturity Attitudes About Themselves Proud people feel confident in how much they know Broken people are humbled by how very much they have to learn Proud people are self-conscious; they worry about what others think of them Broken people are not preoccupied with what others think of them Proud people are concerned about appearing respectable; they are driven to protect their image and reputation Broken people are concerned about being real; they care less what others think about what God knows — they are willing to die to their own reputation This can drive them to extremes — workaholic tendencies, perfectionism, the tendency to drive others or to place unrealistic expectations on themselves or others Broken people can recognize and live within God-given limitations Attitudes About Relationships Proud people are quick to blame others Broken people accept responsibility and can acknowledge where they are wrong in a situation Proud people wait for others to come and ask forgiveness when there is a misunderstanding or a breach in a relationship Broken people take the initiative to be reconciled, no matter how wrong the other party may have been.
Proud people are unapproachable or defensive when corrected Broken people receive correction with a humble, open spirit Proud people find it difficult to discuss their spiritual needs with others Broken people are willing to be open and transparent with others as God directs Proud people try to control the people and circumstances around them — they are prone to manipulate Broken people trust in God — they rest in Him and are able to wait for Him to act on their behalf Broken people give thanks in all things; they are quick to forgive those who wrong them Attitudes About Sin Proud want to be sure that no one finds out when they have sinned; their tendency is to cover up.
Proud people are concerned about the consequences of their sin.
They are disturbed over the problems caused by their sin — for example, the financial bondage created by their overspending, or the problems in their marriage that have resulted from selfishness and immoral choices Broken people are grieved over the cause, the root of their sin. They are more concerned about how reivves sin has grieved and dishonored God than about the problems it has brkoenness in their lives.
Proud people are remorseful over their sin- sorry that they got caught or found out Broken people are truly repentant over their sin, and the evidences of their repentance are that they forsake the sin. Attitudes About Their Walk with God Proud people are blind to the true condition of their hearts Broken people walk in the light and acknowledge the truth about their sins Proud people compare themselves with others and feel worthy of respect Broken people compare themselves with the rwvives of God and feel a desperate need for His mercy
