These are a collection of my favorite Bible verses about a broken heart that can help ease the pain and burden you’re feeling now. The Lord God heals broken hearts if we let him remove this pain from us.
“When my heart is overwhelmed lead me to the rock that is higher than I.” Psalm 61:2.
The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
If you’re wondering how God can mend a broken heart after a broken relationship or if you’re here today with a shattered heart, you’ve come to the right place.
It’s essential to remember that only God has the power to mend a damaged heart. You may have heard the saying “time heals all wounds,” but this is only partly true. Even if a broken heart does eventually mend, God is the one who makes it possible. For genuine peace and healing, one must rely on God. The greatest approach to relying on God in these trying times is to turn to him in prayer.
Recognize your need for Him. Request that the Lord mend your wounded heart. Ask Him for help in moving forward from the failed relationship.
My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise.
Grief is both a feeling and an action. It’s okay to cry when your heart is broken. It’s acceptable to feel worn out. You are not required to prevent it.
Scripture acknowledges the value of mourning. God cried without apologizing for it. God does not have dry cheeks when His heart is aching, and you shouldn’t feel guilty if you don’t either.
Christians are not just those who weep; they are those who weep properly. It is not enough to just let our emotions out; they need to be nurtured. It’s important to combine hope with our emotions.
My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
Grief calls for prayer. It is our souls’ connection with their Creator and Sustainer. When we pray, we aren’t trying to change God’s mind; rather, we are giving Him our deepest aspirations and relying on His stewardship, even when they aren’t fulfilled.
In His hour of great need, Christ cries out in prayer. Something about praying, about expressing to our Lord our deepest thoughts and emotions, makes our hearts more open to the comfort that only the gospel can offer. God adores hearing the sincere, genuine prayers of His children.
Our prayers and hearts will benefit when we feed from God’s word through difficult times.
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
Grief may be draining. We find ourselves emotionally and physically exhausted. At moments like this, it can be difficult to breathe at all as an awful and persistent fog seems to envelop our minds and bodies. Rest is necessary for those who are grieving. We need rest in our spirits as much as in our bodies.
Resting in Jesus often means purposefully stepping away from the chaos of the outside world. Making the decision to channel what little emotional energy we do have toward the goals of God’s kingdom, bringing about a peace that reason alone cannot explain.
Do not grieve by yourself. Grief is not a private matter. God loves His children too much for them to keep all their pain to themselves. To uphold the command of Christ, bear one another’s burden.
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
In your moment of need, allowing people to walk with you is a way to serve them while simultaneously allowing them to serve you. Satan uses our sorrow to help satisfy our desire to withdraw, both individually and collectively. It just seems like too much of a chore to manage to gather for worship.
It may be challenging for us to sing, pray, or focus during worship when we are grieving. The Lord’s Supper could appear to be an empty ritual. But when everything else seems to be failing, worship acts as a sort of spiritual ventilator, keeping us alive. Worship is easing our sadness and nourishing our spirits back to health, even when we don’t realize it.
The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.
Dear Jesus, I come to you today asking for your healing touch. I know that You are the healer of all things and the Great Physician.
You want us to turn to you with our burdens because through them we find hope. I am coming before you right now, brokenhearted and broken over the sadness in my life…
Please Jesus heal me.
Heal me, Jesus. Heal me, Jesus. Heal me, Jesus. I need your touch here and now to make all things whole again.
