Sunday Reflection on the Brokenhearted


I see the heartbreak, of those I know, on Facebook, people who have lost their loves: a toddler son, an adult son, a mother and others. All tragic. All a testament to the fragility of life.
Brokenhearted people are left behind to deal with their grief.

“Your most profound and intimate experiences of worship will likely be in your darkest days – when your heart is broken, when you feel abandoned, when your out of options, when the pain is great – and you turn to God alone.” ~ Rick Warren
Like everyone else, I don’t like going through heartbreak. Like everyone else, I have. It is true for me that in my “darkest days” of living, I am close to God. When I want my breath to stop, he breathes new life in me.

“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” Psalms 147:3 (NIV)
Blessings on your day!

  1. It is not a fun state to be in at all, but one just about everyone has to go through

  2. We never go through the darkness alone, as He who is the Light is always with us.

  3. I dread it. And as a non-believer, all I can do is muddle through to the other side.

  4. Last year was my test. I lost my mom and my oldest son almost died in an accident. Heartbreak is the universal that unites us all and whether we choose to turn to a deity or to other sources of comfort and strength, we all do seek a way to cope. I'm in the whatever works camp.

  5. Their is a season for grief, but if we don't move forward we aren't letting God carry us.
