Lately, several of my closest friends and I have felt the pain of grief. My heart aches from missing my friend who courageously fought cancer and won her reward of Heaven. It doesn’t help that her birthday is in September and Breast Cancer Awareness Month is October. Although I know her suffering has ended, I still grieve the idea of her suffering and the pain left in the heart of all that loved her. Several of my friends have lost loved ones and attended funerals over the past few weeks. We have all felt the wave of emotions that comes with losing someone.
Today, I was talking within a group chat with a some beautiful ladies. We talked about grief and how we have dealt with it. We prayed and encouraged each other as we usually do. Then, I opened my devotional to find that the Verse of the Day was Psalm 147:3. I read the lesson and shared the verse with the group. Afterwards, the same verse popped up in my Facebook memories. Later, it was the opening verse for Pastor Jarrett’s message today. What was God saying? I believe He was reminding us that He heals and repairs broken our broken hearts. I believe that He was reminding us of His humanity and how He too grieved when the very ones He was sent to save rejected Him. I believe He was reminding us that He had walked in the agony we feel, so that He would be accessible to us and be our help during our seasons of pain or sorrow.
Since He loved me enough to remind me of this today, I wanted to do the same for you. Is your heart broken? Are you experiencing loss and grieving someone you loved dearly?
Well, He is here to bind your wounded heart and restore it. Let Him do it for you.
