“He heals the brokenhearted and bandages their wounds” (Psalm 147:3, NLT).

Most of us have experienced a broken heart to one degree or another. Sometimes the hurt isn’t too deep and is easily overcome or forgotten. Some hurts go so deep the person is forever affected. Some have perhaps died of a broken heart. Life holds a lot of pain and there are no real cures. Drugs and alcohol only dull it and lead to even more heart break.

God knows our hearts and he knows the depth of our pain. He watched as his one and only son was tortured and killed. You could say Jesus went to the cross brokenhearted over the pain and destruction caused by sin. The good news is he is the one who can heal all broken hearts and bandage the wounds we all carry. His love, grace and mercy is the balm to soothe and the cure which heals.
