Can Jesus heal a broken heart
This is one of our favorite verses because it reminds us that no matter how high the mountain you have to cross, Jesus can help you climb it. He can take you to the other side.
Jesus gives us strength, so don’t be too proud to ask Him for help. He can heal your broken heart.
Life can be hard and cruel with you. In fact, since Adam sinned the world has been broken, and not just you: the world is broken. That’s right, nothing works perfectly anymore. In fact, our body is not working well, and you see how many strange diseases are appearing.
Added to this are other catastrophes: hurricanes, earthquakes, forest fires, kidnappings, wars, murders. Every day we have to face a feeling of loss: that the marriage is not working well or that a loved one has died. We must fight day by day against defeats and disappointments. But remember, this is no longer paradise. That is why we must always pray and ask that His Will be done here on earth as it is in heaven.
Sure right now you are disappointed, defeated. So, you wonder, how do I get up? How do I overcome this?
Jesus in Matthew 5: 4 blesses all those who cry because they will be comforted.
It seems illogical that He tells us that he who cries will be blessed. Imagine, your mind is full of conflicts, you have poor health, your partner left you or you are thinking of leaving and they say “blessed are those who cry.” How can we be blessed in a faulty, broken world?
God you don’t expect to be happy all the time. There is a myth among Christians that suggests that a believer, if he knows Jesus, should be happy all the time with a big smile. No, when you decide to follow Christ, it means something else.
In Ecclesiastes 3 he tells us that there is a time for everything under heaven. Specifically in verse 4 it says:
«A time to cry, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to jump in pleasure ».
The Bible makes it clear that sometimes crying is appropriate. Grief, pain is not just for funerals. In the blink of an eye you can lose everything: your job, your health, your money, your reputation, your dreams, everything. So the appropriate response to each loss that happens to us is to FACE it , not to pretend that we are happy.
Do not grieve for anything, if today you are sad it is for something. You are not an inanimate being, you were made in His image and likeness. If you feel emotions it is because God is an emotional God. God suffers, is compassionate and not distant.
Remember, Jesus cried when his friend Lazarus died. His heart was moved by the pain of those who were crying his death.
Then, instead of living in denial, he faces that vicissitude. Pain is a healthy emotion, it is a gift from God. It is a tool that allows us to go through life’s transitions. Without change you cannot grow.
It is like a mother who must go through labor pains before having her baby. Do not suppress or suppress the pain, express it, either to your friends or family, better: confess it to HIM.
Once you confess, begin healing. In Psalm 39: 2 David confesses: “I kept quiet and said nothing and my anguish only grew . ” If you don’t mourn the losses in life, you get stuck at that stage.
God comforts and blesses a broken heart. Crying is not a sign of weakness, it is a sign of love. Simply by yourself you will not be able to overcome the pain. Jesus is not far, he is by your side. God pays attention and will never abandon you.
«As saddened, but always joyful; as poor, but enriching many; as having nothing, but possessing everything ”(2 Corinthians 6:10).
If you do not have Jesus in your life, then it is not near you. At that moment you are on your own. But God brings us closer to himself, he says in His Word. When we become his children, He gives us a family, which is the church. This is to support us and we should rejoice with them. Do what Jesus says to do, comfort those around you first, you will realize that there are people suffering as much or more than you. It is not that you try to minimize the pain, nor try to hasten the pain or affliction.
Free yourself: if someone has hurt you, forgive him. Confess that pain.
Focus: The power of God works in us. Help other victims who suffer.
Receive: Receive the comfort of our Lord Jesus Christ, who comforts us through the Holy Spirit in tribulations.
No one would choose to have his heart broken. The time to restore a broken heart is long and unbearable. But there is someone with a pure, spotless heart who chose to have it broken. He understands what a temptation, a loss or a betrayal is. He will send the Holy Spirit, the comforter to guide you and accompany you and compose the empty and broken spaces of your heart.
