Have you ever felt that your heart would break, because of the sadness within it? Have you ever experienced a feeling of emptiness within that same heart? There are times when I think we all go through this struggle. There’s something going on inside of us that makes no sense. It triggers tears that won’t stop and thoughts of rejection, loss, loneliness and even a feeling of never recovering from it.

Some people call it a broken heart. Others refer to it as depression, anxiety and self-inflicted pain. Whatever it is, it is beyond our control. Sure, we have the brains to organize our thinking and the power to change the way we view things. We have strength that often goes beyond our wildest dreams, especially when we think we will never get through the situation. We are strong and courageous – at least we’re told to be so – but we need someone who knows the full scope of the problems that we’re facing. The only One, who created the Universe, – who breathed life into us – who gave us abilities to work through the problems of life – but also promised to be with us throughout the process. Our Holy God, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, is with us through all our ailments, our frustration, our fears and sadness. He sits beside us, comforts us, gives us rest, is in control of the outcome and leads us to a solution.

I have felt the emptiness of a broken heart. It’s hard to describe, because it isn’t like any other emotion. Knowing that God is our friend in all situations will help. He doesn’t want us to be sad. We are precious to Him. He sacrificed His own Son, so that we could reap the benefits of His eternal kingdom. Instead of trying to figure it all out by yourself, turn to Him for comfort, relief and the will to carry on. Remember, He will never leave you.

“The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.” Psalm 34:18


About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    Sometimes people feel he will change the circumstances that created the broken heart. I have a friend whose adult daughter won’t speak to him. He gives it to God but would like change…of course. It will change but when it is needed the most…in God’s time.

    Mama K, I have experienced a broken heart. True grief. I don’t know what or who I’d be without the love of God. When all feels lost, he replaces it when we choose. Thank you for always writing about how our Savior impacts our lives. On another note, my oldest son sent me a video of my grandson watching Winnie the Pooh. He said “He loves Winnie!” And I replied, “Just like you.” 💕 sending love, hugs, and prayers always!
