Most of the time that we speak of healing, we are talking about sickness and disease in relation to things sometimes and sometimes not treatable by a medical doctor. But one of the subjects that we do not often enough speak of is: a broken heart. Yet. we all have faced it at one time or another.
Broken relationships, Family inflicted pain, unexpected loss, severed friendships, unexpected aggression, business dead ends, financial woes, bad decisions, being naive, fractured trust, misunderstandings….
We have to be so careful…but we have the freedom…and the right to say:
Lord…I give it all to You…it’s a faith thing!
The Lord is near to the brokenhearted
and saves the crushed in spirit.
