Healing a Broken Heart

Troubled times sooner or later result in broken heart.  These times are caused by sins against God and others and there is only one path out – Jesus. It starts with a full confession to the ones you’ve hurt and to someone in a position to hold you accountable and most importantly God with an acknowledgement of the sin and that only Jesus can save us from it and deliver us from darkness. Then forgiveness, prayer, study, fellowship with others and more can start to heal the broken hearts.

Below are several verses about healing a broken heart that spoke to me and here is a link for many more.

18 The Lord is close to the brokenhearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.[a]

3 He heals the brokenhearted
and binds up their wounds.

4 ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’[a] or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

26 My flesh and my heart may fail,
but God is the strength of my heart
and my portion forever.

22 Cast your cares on the Lord
and he will sustain you;
he will never let
the righteous be shaken.

6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

About GettingCloserToOurGod

This blog is written by Todd Christenson. He was raised in Nebraska and currently lives on Long Island in New York. Though out my childhood, my family attended church. We prayed together at meals. I thought I was prepared for life. After college, I moved to New York City. Shy, unsure of myself, building an identity in worldly things, increasingly prideful, self-righteousness, a controlling nature. In 2013, God spoke through someone, suggesting I confess my sins. I did. I realized that every day, I’d been glorifying myself, not God. Today, God’s teaching me to have my identity in Him, only, my dependency in Him, not myself, being who He wants me to be, not the world, loving Him first, loving others as myself.
