Healing Words for a Broken Heart

Healing Words for a Broken Heart

healing wordsDo you feel like you heart is breaking? I am sorry to hear that. No matter what has caused your broken heart, help is near. You are not alone.

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted
    and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
(Psalm 34: 18, NIV,*)

I can testify for this. Nothing will separate you from God. Nothing at all.

Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? 36 (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.”) 37 No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. 38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:35-39, NLT,*)

Just know that this too will pass. Time does not heal all the wounds, though. But God does. Rest in him.

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds [curing their pains and their sorrows]. (Psalm 147:3, AMP,*)

God loves to heal your heart. Just remember to give all the pieces to God. He will create something beautiful out of them.

We know that God works all things together for good for the ones who love God, for those who are called according to his purpose.
(Romans 8:28, CEB,*)

So cry your heart out to God, he listens.
Rest in Christ’s arms, he heals your wounds.
Abide in the Holy Spirit, he will lift you up.

 

Gracious God,
I come to you with my broken heart.
Put me back together, Lord,
because I can’t.
I am at the end of rope here.
Thank you for always loving me,
always believing in me,
always encouraging me.
I trust you, Lord.
I rest in you.
Heal me, Lord.
In Jesus’ name,
Amen
