There is nothing worse than living with a heavy heart. That crushing feeling makes it hard to think, to have joy, and to breathe, or to function.
Psalm 34:18 tells us that “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those that are crushed in spirit.” I love that when I feel that I’ve been deserted and that I’m all alone in something, the Lord is close. I may not feel Him, but faith tells me that He is near and that I am never alone. What better companion could we have through all of life’s heartbreaks than the Lord? “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” Ps. 147:3 And if we let Him, He will fill us with the sense of His presence right in the middle of our sorrow. He is, after all, The Comforter and no one does it better than He does.
Today I am thankful for the comfort of the Holy Spirit.
