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

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,

Rebecca

Finding God in the Garden

March 30, 2017

spiritual growth, gardening, finding God, weeds

When springtime rolls around, it’s hard for me not to write about my favorite season. Visions of pink and blue hydrangeas, white gardenias, yellow daylilies, coral heuchera, and purple petunias dance in my head. Every year I save up for colorful replacements or new varieties.

There are some things about this time of year, however, that can destroy its beauty–if I let it.

You guessed it: weeds. You can tell by this picture in my backyard garden that some flowers are blooming. But most of those green shoots covering the ground and invading the good plants? Weeds! Unfortunately, just like most of the plants in my gardens, those weeds are perennial.

The sun may eventually kill the shallow ones, though my garden is mostly shady. And mulch will cover up some of the green invaders. But only for a while. Others will soon take their place. If I let them grow wild and don’t pull them out as soon as they pop up, they will soon choke out the beauty and the fragrance of my garden.

Finding God in the Garden

That’s true of my spiritual garden as well. Think about these areas of life and the power of weeds left untended: Read more

A New Year's Prayer for You

 

My New Year’s Prayer for You

As you look back over the past year, do you see patterns that need amending, habits that need rending, and do you find yourself defending your actions and attitudes? Are you longing for something different this year? If you want to move ahead, start over, and experience a year of victory, not defeat, then maybe this prayer will help to inspire you.

Lord Jesus, I come to you in this brand new year with a desire to move forward, not backward. Last year is gone, and with it all the foolish mistakes I made. I’m eager to put the past behind and to press on toward the mark of knowing you, loving you, serving you, and making Your name known in this coming year. Read more

A Christmas Prayer for You

December 22, 2016

As Christmas draws near, may our hearts also draw closer to the One we celebrate–it’s all about Jesus. And despite the fears, the tears, and the challenges that invade our world daily, we can experience the joy and peace He came to bring. That’s my wish for you this year, that not only will Jesus be the center of your Christmas celebration, but that you will know His joy and His peace, this Christmas, and always!

A Christmas Prayer for You

My Christmas Prayer for You

I wrote a Christmas prayer especially for you this year. I hope you’ll read it and accept it as my prayer-wish for each of you this Christmas. Take time this year to make prayer a part of your Christmas traditions, wherever you are.

Over two thousand years ago a band of shepherds heard some startling news from angelic visitors: “Be not afraid;” “good news of great joy;” “peace on earth and good will.” Seriously? But that was then, and now is now. Is that joy and peace still available? If you’re craving those things for your life this year, no matter where you are, here’s a prayer for peace and joy to be a reality in your life this year at Christmas:
