He Heals the Brokenhearted — 32 Comments

  1. Relationships can be so fragile to navigate. May God continue to give you His peace & strength & comfort as you cry out to Him. Thank you for sharing these thoughts. I was your neighbor at Spiritual Sundays.

  2. I love to be reminded that He hears us when we call. The rejection of love when offered is so so painful. But you have found the Healer. God bless you today.

  3. Oh Janis, relationships can be so painful at times. When we love, we open our heart to hurt. But we keep on loving. How glad I am to read how the Lord comforted you at this time.

    Blessings and love,

    • Debbie~Sometimes the road to keep on loving gets fraught with hurt, pain, and anger. By His grace, we keep on loving. He teaches us in so many ways, especially through others. Glad to have you here, friend.


  4. As I was reading this, I was reminded of my on-again-off-again relationship with my prodigal son. Yes, the Lord is our comfort. (Jumping over from Jumping Tandem)

  5. Oh what joy to see a loved one, even though they are not ready to respond to your love (as yet). I am so thankful that the story is not over and a new day is approaching.

  6. That sounds like a great devotional. I love how the Lord can use timeless truths to heal us in the moment. Reading again and again and again–been there, done that. And will be there again. Blessings.

    • Hazel~Because it is impossible to see God’s work behind the scenes, it’s hard to believe all will turn out well. But I know I must trust Him for faith is the substance of things hoped for. He is at work, Lord help me believe and trust more.


  7. It is so hard to believe sometimes that He can restore and redeem all things because I get blinded by the brokenness. But then, I remember — He who spoke the world into creation can do things beyond my wildest dreams.

  8. Dear Janis
    I am so sorry to hear of all the pain this strained relationship is causing you!? I know this hurts very much. But I think our Lord cherishes relationships even more than we do and I have experienced His healing and restoration in mighty ways once I started praying earnestly for a broken relationship I experienced. It is hard too keep on keeping on trusting Him to restore life to such brokenness, but He does His wonders in His way and time. Praying for you, dear one!

  9. Happens, doesn’t it? I struggle sometimes when a son, daughter, grandkids, etc., that have walked into tough places, by their own choice, and I know much about reality from my background and the possible consequences that would have/could have ended my life IF the Lord had not broken in and through the doors/walls. We must lift these situations up to Him and trust HIM. Nothing else can possibly come to pass for a heavenly reality.

    Thank you.

    • Caryjo~you understand exactly where I am and the conflict before me. I do want a heavenly reality for this situation so I continue to lift it up to the Lord. Thank you for stopping by.

  10. Thank you for this post. I learn from you. You are a precious blessing.

    Let’s remember:‘Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says Yahweh of Armies.

  11. All of your comments have brought such encouragement and peace, as some of you have even traveled the same road I am on now.

    May the Lord bless each of you for your compassion and grace to share with me and be a blessing.

    From My heart to yours,
