The Broken Hearted
some bible verses about the broken hearted are: "the LORD is close to broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit" psalm34:18, "He heals the broken-hearted and binds up their wounds" psalm 147:3, and "... He has sent me to bind the broken-hearted..."isaiah 61:1
Recently, including now I seem to be hurt all the time and I can not seem to feel God when I pray because my chest has so much hurt that it is over powering my judgment, which I am trying to stop and rely on God again. For I desperately want him but it is my own self that is stopping me, so what is a broken heart? Is it the fact that you have so much hurt? Or the fact you can't feel God?
I have been reading helpful bible verses that has helped me, like "the LORD is close to broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit" psalm 34:18. That is a really powerful message to me, because it is like saying that no matter what you do or go the LORD our God will always be with us. Another bible verse I love and has meaning is "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight." proverbs 3:5-6 So to me even if you are really hurt or confused about god then don't worry. Just trust in him, and everything will be alright.
He will heal you of your hurt if you go to him, he loves you no matter what, for he is a gracious God. Do not let a broken heart separate you from God, for it does no good to yourself or to God.
I just would like to pray for all the people who are suffering in some way and just give your heart and your worries and your hurt to God. For he listens and he does answer :) Amen, so be it.
