Are you broken-hearted?

Nov 3, 2022

Have you seen it? The face of a broken-hearted person. Maybe you saw it this morning in the mirror.

Hi, this is Allen Burris from Sherwood Oaks Christian Church with today’s Minute Message.

I’ve seen the faces of the broken-hearted a lot over the years. And still do. I see them at the end of funerals and in the courtroom, where the painful past is relived in the present.

I once saw a woman I barely know watch her ex-husband walk away holding hands with a new girlfriend. I can only imagine how broken her heart was. Her face said it was very broken.

We’ve all experienced a broken heart, and some live with them. It shows on faces.

Hear these wonderful reminders of God’s presence.

  • Psalm 34:18 — The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
  • Psalm 147:3 — He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.

If you are brokenhearted, please know there are people who care. And the Lord cares deeply. Let us know if we can help.
