Finally, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me – put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. Philippians 4:8-9

LORD, HEAL MY BROKEN HEART



Lord...I want to thank you that you do not put bandages on broken hearts...that you have promised to heal the broken hearted.
I still remember when my grand-mother passed away...and they said she died of a broken heart...How could someone who loved you with all their heart, die of a broken heart?
I never really understood...and for awhile, I didn't even want to understand...it was cruel to make my grandma suffer that way, to die that way...
Until I learned that, you my Lord, died of a broken heart...
that our hearts might be healed of their broken-ness...that our lives might be healed of the helpless and hopeless abandon to a fate we feel has absolute power over our destinies, our hopes and dreams...the desires of our heart. 
Numberless people have suffered broken-ness in millions of ways...libraries and instituions have volumes of books that offer council and words of wisdom, even the Bible falls short of it's promises to those who walk in blindness and unbelief,  in pride and self-centeredness....These bandages are helps to the broken hearted....but they will not heal it....
There's only One Way to heal a broken heart...and that is the Way of Love...the Light of Love...the Word of Love...the Spirit of Love...the Life of Love that heals to the uttermost...renews and strengthens with the Word of promise, the word of faith, the word of hope...that "ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD TO THEM THAT LOVE GOD."...
LORD, ONLY YOU CAN HEAL A BROKEN HEART.

Sweet (((Joy))),

Interesting thought in this blog: "How can someone who loved you with all their heart die of a broken heart?

I don't know...

But our beloved Abba Father knows & can completely heal any broken heart yeilded to Him.

It's heartrending to consider the Lord Jesus' broken heart as He hung on the cross... If only we truly understood His brokenness, we would do our very *best* not to sin anymore! If only we could truly understood His perfect love for us...Love that surpasses anything we've ever known... Amazing Love...

The way of love... The way of Light... Lord help me walk more and more in this Your way...

I love & pray for you (((dear one))),

forever & ever,

ooly!

I remember reading many times how wives would literally grow sick, wither away, and die after the death of a child, a husband. When love is this deep, that it literally kills a person slowly, well, it has to be a Godly love. When a spouse passes on, it is to be expected, if they were truly one in Christ... as husband and wife, that spouse who still walks on earth, is left incomplete. They have memories and children in most cases but the fact remains they have to learn how to do every single thing, they have done with their spouse, without. Such sadness! Such grief! To miss the gentle sigh after the husband reads an article, or the smell of chicken & noodles rising through the air after the wife has passed on. Woe. I remember listening to my Grandmother after Grandpa passed away. She said, she was merely here waiting for God to call her home. It took 21 years for God to make that call and I can imagine the peace He brought her on that day. Glory be to God for giving such imperfect people the ability to feel so much love for another that without them, they merely wait upon the Lord to bring them peace again, sometimes while on earth, sometimes at death.

What a beautiful blog post! Thank you Sweet one! Prayers for you, Faith Always
