Shattered Heart

Shattered Heart

Lord.. I cannot take the pain anymore. Why, when I’ve tried so hard, is my heart so broken?

Today I’m going to…

Give my heart to Your tender, loving hands,

Only You can put the pieces back, as only You can understand

A broken heart. Sattered, bereft, lying in pieces at the loss of love.

Why must we endure such pain? Why do we have to go through this? It feels like it will never end, as we are so deeply hurt that the feeling is physically painful to us, choking our spirits and bodies.

When we look to God to heal our pain, we must trust that He will. We must believe that He is the loving, tender Father that cares about all of our burdens, all of our woes, all of our grief. He promises us that He will restore us in all that has been robbed of us in life. He promises to heal our hearts and spirits.

Our job is to just believe and keep believing. Know that going through the pain of losing love, whether from a break-up or a death, God; tender and merciful, is holding us in the palm of His hands.

Luke 4:18

The spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has sent me to heal the broken-hearted.
