Can a Broken Heart be Healed?
"There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love." (1 John 4:18)
Heart to Heart
A Dedication from My Heart to Your Heart
This is dedicated to all those very lovely friends here in HP Town whose loving hearts have been stomped on by those who are just out to collect as many hearts as they are able, despite the pain inflicted and left behind. I have read the most heartrending poetry about how true hearts have been broken into pieces. All of these lovely persons (both men and women) are such caring and loving persons who deserve to be treated better and know of that true love from another.
Enjoy this very dramatic video! "Who do you think you are?"
That Emotional Aching Inside Your Chest
One can experience a “broken heart” when one is deeply disappointed or grieved over a life circumstance when we lose a loved one, whether a spouse, child or even a beloved pet.
Then there is the other matter of when one’s heart is completely shattered to pieces by someone we thought truly loved us, but it was just a big lie. And to further the agony that person attempts to come back into our lives and continue to further damage our already broken hearts.
Not a Pretty Sight
What does Your Picture of Love Look Like?
Does your picture of love look like this?
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” (1 Corinthians 13:4-7)
If your picture of love looks a lot different than that of the above-quoted scripture of what true love really looks like, then there may be cause for concern.
Let's Peek Inside Your Heart and See What is Going On . . . Well Maybe not too much Peeking : )
After my morning devotion and time spent with Him, these words were burned into my heart, and so I share them with you . . .
Poem ~ Anguish of Heart
Oh, my lovely darlings,
Your hearts wrench within you
With emotional flooding
Mourning in complaint
Weary from the treachery and ingratitude of men
Longing to hide
Needing rest, so that you may know of that quietness
Without contortion from your sorrowful soul
Exceeding in pain
When your heart like wax, melts
You are utterly crushed
Sighing is your daily consumption
And your groans pour out of you
You are numb
You shake and are very saddened
You are completely devastated
Crying out loudly for your heart is in turmoil
You are broken beyond measure
For that net was spread for your feet
And made you desolate
Your eyes fail from weeping
Because of this, your hearts are faint
And your eyes grow dim
As you were smitten unto excess
So much pain, no words to describe the feeling
Your distress and hurting seem too great to bear
Grasping for words to describe the depth of the pain
You are paralyzed, suffering acutely
Unable to think clearly
“The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit (Psalms 34:18).”
“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. (Psalms 147:3)”
Poem ~ Hope for the Heart ~
Oh, my lovely darlings,
I desire to bring hope to your hurting hearts
My hope is that my prayer is a salve for every sore,
And a relief to the spirit under every burden
That you change your focus
Away from your own pain
To the Lord’s love,
Thereby, reminding of God’s faithfulness
May the men and women in your lives be the wisest and best
Those who covet peace and quietness
Oh, my lovely darlings,
Fly away and be at rest as on the wings of a dove!
Have you experienced a broken heart at the hands of one who seems to collect hearts and who attempts to return to cause more agony?
Woo hoo good one here ~ "You stole my happy" and that is not good when that happens . . .
Faith believes that God will plant the seeds of hope for tomorrow in the garden of our hearts today.— Janet L. Weaver Smith
“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied." (Matthew 5:6)
"You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book." (Psalm 56:8)
There Will Always be Something Missing . . .
Even when we are in a good relationship and all is going well in our lives . . . in love, family, friends, finances, etc., there will always be that hole inside of us that, no matter what, seems to never be satisfied . . . and, as for me, that hole was filled with having that personal and intimate relationship with Him, who is truly the only One who can satisfy in this life. This has just been my experience.
He places your tears in a bottle. Now, what does that mean? God knows your sorrows and struggles. He knows every tear that you shed. If your God knows and cares for the birds of the air and all other living creatures, He certainly knows and cares about your situation.
I love you all and my heart aches terribly when I know your heart is broken.
