The Broken Hearted

Updated on November 26, 2015

Psalm 34:18
The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

con·trite

/kənˈtraɪt, ˈkɒntraɪt/ [kuhn-trahyt, kon-trahyt] –adjective 1. caused by or showing sincere remorse. 2. filled with a sense of guilt and the desire for atonement; penitent: a contrite sinner.

Isaiah 61:1

The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

Life's journey can sometimes result in our spirit being wounded or crushed.

Jesus tells us to let go of our grudges and do good to those who hate us. Psychologists today give us the same advice. They tell us that we have the power to lighten the burdens we carry and that forgiving is one way of doing that.

Some medical scientists say that feeding the wounds of emotional hurts precipitates heart disease, cancer, digestive problems, high blood pressure and mental breakdown. Some doctors see a link between cancer and the tendency to hold resentment and nurse hurts.

Psalm 147

He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.

A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken. Proverbs 15:13

 

Is there someone you need to forgive?
