Jesus tells His disciples, “In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”” John 16:33 NKJV
In this world we will indeed have tribulation and many times that tribulation will bring us a broken heart.
So what do we do? How do we mend that broken heart? I give you three things…
First things first! We seek the Lord! We cry out for His Mercy and grace! We ask the Lord to heal us and mend our broken heart!
Psalm 147:3 tells us, The Lord heals the broken hearted and binds up their wounds.
Jeremiah he cried out to To The Lord, “Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; Save me, and I shall be saved, For You are my praise. Indeed they say to me, “Where is the word of the LORD? Let it come now!”” Jeremiah 17:14-15 NKJV
We cry out and The Lord comes, He will be with us, He will tend to our needs!
Second we must go through the normal grieving process, we wear our hearts on our sleeves for all to see! We let it all out with a good cry if need be! There’s nothing worse than keeping things bottled up when we are hurting! All that does is make things worse! We need to grieve! We need to heal by following the natural process.
The third thing we do is take the time to seek godly council with godly men and women who have been there, done that!
The bible tells us… “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.” II Corinthians 1:3-4 NKJV
There are many in The Lord that have been there done that, they have had broken hearts, look to your brothers and sister and they will get you through it!
Father God, you are mighty, you are the stronghold the one who gets us through all things! We look to your loving hands to mend our broken hearts to heal us from the inside out! We ask for your loving grace and mercy! In Jesus name amen!
