Nehemiah 11:1-12:26; 1 Corinthians 10:14-11:2; Psalm 34:11-22; Proverbs 21:14-16
A rumpled heap of emotions lay
on the floor, tossed there by
one who feels the loss
Tears sprinkle down,
darkening the hurts.
The broken heart still beats,
Till the One whose heart bled for all
stoops and scoops the broken heart
to soothe it with His love.
He who was “crushed for our iniquities”
now comes to save.
He binds the broken heart
and leaves His peace.
“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Psalm 34:18
Lord Jesus, you tenderly care for those with bruised and battered spirits. Please be with all those today who are struggling with a broken heart. Give them faith and hope and love. Let them feel your loving arms around them. If they suffer because of guilt from sin, let them be assured of your forgiveness. If they suffer at the hands of others who mistreat them, please come to their rescue. If they suffer from being alone, fill them with your presence. Thank you for your healing, saving power in our lives. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
