"The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit." Psalm 34:18
Life is filled with ups and downs. It seems like the ups only last a few seconds, while the downs seem to last for days upon days. Sometimes the ups are few and far between the downs. In life we face many trials. We lose jobs. We face financial difficulties. We lose loved ones. We battle through relationship problems. The list can go on and on. I believe we have many brokenhearted people walking around us everyday. Many times, we may be the ones who are brokenhearted. But God's Word says that He "is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit." Psalm 34:19-20 goes on to say, "The righteous person may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers them from the them all; he protects all his bones, not one of them will be broken." Psalm 147:3 also says, "He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds." No matter how hard life gets, no matter how long the "downs" of life seem to last, remember that the Lord loves you! He is close to the brokenhearted! He will save you! He will heal the brokenhearted!
