Bible Promise for Today: How to Find Healing for the Broken Heart

Bible promise healing broken heart God heals

Healing for a Broken Heart

Has your heart ever been broken? How do you find healing for your broken heart? Where do you turn?

Several years ago about this time one of my dearest girlfriends died. She lived a good distance away, but earlier, our kids had grown up together in the same town, and our families had spent many cool, Colorado vacations together. She taught me so much about life, and I felt a huge loss and emptiness at her passing. I had hoped to spend even more time with her in our later years, but that didn’t happen. Even though I knew she was enjoying Jesus‘s presence in eternity, I still grieved.

The loss of parents, children, a spouse, or anyone close to us can leave our hearts in need of mending.

Some of you may have experienced a betrayal or divorce, or you’re still struggling with a prodigal son or daughter. Most of us have plowed through devastating circumstances at one time or another.

But for me, the greatest heartbreak of all is when I grieve God’s heart through sin–failing to trust and obey Him.

Bible Promise for a Broken Heart

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds (Psalm 147:3, NIV).


The promise in Psalm 147:3 is a wonderful Bible promise for us. It can apply to all these hurts and more. It’s one that has brought me comfort in so many situations including the loss of my precious friend and so many others.

The healing may not always be  instant, but God’s presence is. He will walk with you step by step, even when you think you can’t go any further. He is always there to hold your hand and mend your broken heart.

God, the Great Heart-Healer

God is the Great Heart-Healer! He bandages our wounds and makes us whole again. In fact, He is the only One who can.

Have you asked Him to heal your broken heart? He’s waiting to hear from you.

My Prayer for You

Lord, You are indeed the great Heart-Healer! When our hearts are broken and in need of healing, thank You for being there to repair the damage and make us whole again. Thank You for caring about the painful details of our lives, and for loving us through every rough situation.

Day-votedly Yours,

    Hopefully, I have not entered this comment twice. I’m not sure the first one went through. There has been no pain greater for me than the pain of losing a child(even though she was an adult). I do know that in His time, God will indeed heal my broken heart. For now, the pain of the loss is still so very real. I do believe in God’s Faithfulness, Sovereignty and promise to heal. In His time, He will indeed bring that healing.

    Thanks, Kris, for the testimony about the loss of your child. Healing is a process, isn’t it? What would we do without God’s comfort in our lives in those moments?
