Broken. Shattered. Forgotten. Pushed aside. You are going along through life, and suddenly it happens. You find yourself with a broken heart. And it hurts. Ever felt that way? 😭
So often we try to hide our pain, preferring instead to present to the world, a beautiful façade of who we are, more like a perfect version. We find it too difficult to risk the real vulnerability of exposing what once was or what really is.
Don’t be fooled by the face I wear,
Buried in my heart is constant fear.
Each night I venture alone into the dark.
Carrying the terrors that impaled my heart.
Lost in my world, trapped in my mind,
Often alone, but always seem fine.
Silent tears so often I cry,😥
I’m not myself and I wonder why.
Lost in the confusion of my mind,
Disappointments and regrets of every kind.
Lying in bed, with eyes open wide,
Trying to hide the pain I feel inside.
My heart is throbbing, unceasing pain haunts my head,
My body and mind, both feel beyond dead.
My heart is torn to pieces,
As my silent tears releases.
I cannot change the way that I feel,
I wish I could do something to heal.
Bleeding and in pain, Aspirin I take with disdain,
Oh how my heart yearns to be free again.
I can’t take it any longer, I can’t live like this,
I want to feel truly happy, this is my greatest wish.
I’m trying so hard my feelings to conceal,
I can’t turn back the clock, but in time my heart will heal…🤷✍🏼
I serve a God who works wonders still, miracles doth perform,
My sad and broken heart, he will patiently transform.
Through the cleansing power of his grace,
Will comfort me in his gentle, loving embrace. 🙌🏼🙏🏼👏🏽

Life has a way of breaking us, but God knows how to put us back together. He can heal our broken spirit, but we have to give him all the pieces. He longs to restore us regardless of how many times we mess up or fall apart. Instead of just learning to live with our brokenness, we need to give it to God to fix.
We cannot erase pain in this life, but we have a healer. He is the one who can fit the broken pieces of our lives that no longer seem to fit right into a perfect design. He is a restorer of all things. He is our Comforter and Counselor who fills our heart’s empty spaces. He will faithfully heal our wounds and renew our hope if we trust him to meet our deepest needs. With Him, brokenness can turn into blessing.
