BrokenHearted

It’s the Season of Lights and most people are excited about the holidays. They are running around buying presents, planning parties and they have a feeling of good cheer about them. But what if that isn’t you? What if you are experiencing a broken heart this season? Maybe you are experiencing grief because of loss. It may be the loss of a loved one, a job, your health, a house, or a dream that had been dear to you for many years. 

I have been there a few times. Personal grief and loss has left me experiencing a broken heart at this time of year. While everyone else was enjoying the bright lights, I was living in the shadows. Where could I turn to find someone who could help put the pieces of my heart back together again?

What I needed was a physician, a specialist, one who could heal my heart and bring me hope. In my darkness, I found one who was able to do just that. His name is Jesus, He is the Great Physician and He specializes in healing broken hearts. Take in the words He spoke about Himself more than two thousand years ago: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; HE HAS SENT ME TO HEAL THE BROKENHEARTED, to proclaim liberty to the captives, to set at liberty those who are oppressed; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.” Luke 4:18-19.

Unlike other physicians, there is no copay, deductible or waiting time. You can call on Him at any moment and He will be there to help you. He was certainly able to help me. Yes, my heart has scars and you can see where He has mended my heart. It may not look like others who may have a perfectly whole heart, but my heart is healed now and I am able to function. I can experience joy again and look forward to what life has to offer.

Call out to Him. I promise He will be there to help you.

  1. Valerie, I liked this a lot! So many people go to everyone else but Jesus or else he is a last resort when all else fails. I like it that you went to him. I especially liked this part:

    “Unlike other physicians, there is no copay, deductible or waiting time. You can call on Him at any moment and He will be there to help you.”

    I will say a hearty “Amen!” to that one. Praise the Lord!

    I think everyone has a broken heart at some time or another. Some people have it much worse than others, but it doesn’t hurt less knowing that others have it worse. Pain is still pain no matter how much or how little. And, we still need our Lord’s healing touch, even in the little things. So, I am so thankful that he is there to meet my every need.

    Thank you so much for sharing this! It was beautiful!!

  2. A beautiful and deep writing carrying rich symbolism. While I am not a believer as such but believe in the power of energy and the universe we need to surrender to let it carry us. We are the chosen One, I believe. I have been in this low phase innumerable time but slowly trusting the big power to take us, and carrying us under their wings.

  3. Keeping it generalized cheesy, offending no one. Is that Christlike? Aside from the Bible quotes, you are merely advertising Theism. Not even Christianity in particular. Just saying… I don’t get the agenda…you just come across as a hypocrite to non-believers… “I can experience joy again and look forward to what life has to offer.” …Tell that to a homeless person… you got to do more than that. And you probably can! Thats why I am challenging you!

    • I appreciate your challenge and thank you for your input! I pray about each post and write as I believe the Spirit is leading me. We each have a different ministry and a different audience. You must bring them in the door before you can feed them the meal. I offer a taste of the meal available to them! Blessings to you this Christmas season!
