“God can heal a broken heart, but you need to give Him all the pieces.” – Anonymous.
Have you ever dealt with a broken heart?
I don’t mean to get up close and personal…
But, if you know me by now, if there is anything I desire for you…
It’s your full restoration, wholeness, healing and transformation in Christ.
And, believe me…
The above stated is POSSIBLE.
So long as FREEDOM through the precious blood of Jesus has been paid for you (and I)
Bondage to PAIN
Bondage to HEARTACHE
Bondage to SUICIDAL THOUGHTS
Bondage to a BROKEN HEART
Does not have to be your choice.
So…can I ask you again?
Have you ever dealt with a broken heart?
Is your heart broken, right now?
Did your ex cheat on you?
Did you cheat on your ex?
Did your friend recently break your trust?
Did you recently betray the trust of your best friend?
Has your father sexually abused you?
Have you abused your mother of late with some nasty words?
Are your siblings after your demise?
Is your heart posture ill toward your siblings?
“What’s with all the questions, Michelle?”
“And, hey, what’s with asking me about what I’ve done? Isn’t this post about heartbreak? My heartbreak?”
Well…it is and it isn’t.
All throughout this series, I’ve stated that our generation is deeply wounded and traumatized by the residual effects of their failed relationships.
Of course, one of those grave effects being:
You may have heard that, “love makes the world go round.”
But I think you and I can also say that, “heartbreak makes the world go down.”
Most, if not all, people have emotionally suffered from the overwhelming distress, sorrow, and pain of the heart. And the suffering from heartbreak along with its baggage of pain has aided many to believe the lie that their healing is far-fetched or simply impossible. I mean just think about all the love songs out there that promote all kinds of melancholy feels, the blues and gloom. People have seriously been wounded by partners, spouses, friends, siblings, co-workers, parents…anybody and everybody.
Though our hearts have been shattered in diverse ways…
Can I appeal to you today, that some of us have got the blues because we are or have been the HEARTBREAKER?
Yes, it’s true.
For a lot of us, the pain doesn’t reside because of how people broke us.
But, we instead got the blues because we’ve realized how much we’ve broken other people.
Whether you’re the HEARTBREAKER or the HEARTBROKEN one, today I simply want to leave you with a few key scriptures and a tip to overcome your hurt and begin your healing process. Please remember, whether you have been damaged or have been the one doing the damage, Christ wounds heals ALL wounds. I pray that as you hover over these scriptures, that the Lord will speak to you, breathe over you afresh and allow every shattered piece of you too become whole!

A Tip: Be Gentle With Yourself!
It can be easy to spiral into a whole of depression after a messy breakup, failed engagement, or divorce. You might even think it more justifiable to resume in your pit of sadness, if you’ve ever been abused or had a close friend seriously disappoint you. Moreover, you might just be feeling like the absolute worst person in the world, because you did somebody dirty and now you are unsure as to how to handle the guilt that you feel.
You must understand that, life is full of various conflicts and relational issues, and so, I get it. You’re wounded. But you cannot afford to keep re-living in your mind all the various events that led to your heartbreak or the pain you inflicted on somebody else. If you really want to move forward and have Christ heal all wounds (and not time), then you’ll have to watch that you don’t continue to speak negative things over yourself! You need to speak positively concerning your heart, body, mind and soul knowing that your heartbreak is just for a temporary moment, the hurt you inflicted has already been forgiven, and that God loves you ever so deeply!
Remember, bondage is a choice because freedom has been paid for.
I pray that you will choose freedom, choose healing, and choose to move forward into your bright wholesome future.
