|Broken Hearts Are Open Hearts“There are many sorts of broken hearts, and Christ is good at healing them all.” —Charles Spurgeon“God is the only Physician who can fully heal a broken heart, and he has never failed in his ability to heal.”Imagine your heart is failing and you require a very risky open-heart surgery. At the hospital, there are several doctors who claim to be proficient at this surgery, but only one has a spotless record — nothing has ever gone wrong with his procedures. Everything he does is perfect. Would you then choose a doctor with lesser experience, or a poorer record? Not if you value your life. God is the only Physician who can fully heal a broken heart, and he has never failed in his ability to heal. . A broken heart is an open heart, and an open heart is vulnerable. In this time of vulnerability, let him be your refuge. Let him fill you with healing through the singing, praying, and worshipping from your broken heart.|
Worship Creates PerspectiveTurn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in his wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim
In the light of his glory and grace.“Worship puts our pain in its rightful place — under the reign of an already victorious Father.”
Though suffering is never a small thing, God is always greater. Worship refocuses our minds on God’s greatness, and puts our pain in its rightful place — under the reign of an already victorious Father. As strange as it may feel in the moment, lift your hands in praise and remember that the victory has been won. Remember that the God who holds your life in the palm of his capable hand is leading the victory march. “He will not leave you or forsake you” Standing at the top of the mountain of adoration, we are suddenly aware of our smallness. And it’s not offensive to us at all. We find joy in knowing that God is glorious beyond our imaginations and gloriously in control of all things, including every inch and second of our heartache. Nothing can touch you except that which has been carefully filtered through his loving fingers. Let heartfelt praise remind you of his great love and absolute sovereignty, and let these reminders bring healing to your broken heart. Worship is a balm for even the deepest of wounds.
