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

My Friends,

In today’s times as well as times past, we are surrounded by people who have suffered from broken hearts. Perhaps you are one of those persons who have endured misfortunes in your life which ultimately may have caused your heart to be broken.

You may wonder how to repair a heart that has been broken or shattered. Well, give Jesus a chance to heal you from the hurt and pain in which you are experiencing or have experienced at some point in your lifetime.

It is important to realize that when hurt bleeds in your heart and your spirit is crushed, Jesus will fix and mend your brokenness. In fact, the psalmist, King David, expresses, “The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit” (Psalm 34:8). He can restore what has been broken, if we trust him to do so.

Many times, people often give advice to others who experience marriage problems, death of a parent or child, loss of financial stability, loss of friendship, etc., but neglect to give them the right source of help. Our source is Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world. Futhermore, “advice givers” must truly understand that their strength comes from Jesus in order to help others who agonize with a broken heart.

Jesus never revealed to believers that this life would be easy. He never expressed to us that disappointments and brokenness would not be a part of our lives. However, as long as persons suffer for his sake, he will restore them. In the book of John, he points out to the disciples that “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” (John 16:33b NIV). As Christians, we can expect some brokenness, but Jesus has already gone through more than we will ever have to endure.

Without a doubt, Jesus heals the brokenhearted. David says in Psalm 147:3, “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” God’s desire is that we are healed from our heart’s injuries. There is hope and healing in Jesus.

Equally important, we must hold fast to God’s promises for us. Even though we are frustrated and troubled, God is our strength and refuge. Because he will fix our broken hearts, we must totally rely on him in every aspect of our lives. After all, “He is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”
