Scriptures for Broken Hearts
Did you know that the book of Psalms is to prayed and not particularly to preached ? Have you read the book of Psalms? the entire book is the perfect book for times of trouble, struggles, heartbreak and fear.
Psalm 34 by far is one of my go to Psalms, when I am in need, there is nothing that can comfort a broken heart like our faithful Savior 🙂
The bible is full of many Scriptures that speak to us when we are feeling burdened and downcast, however today lets take a look Scriptures for the broken hearted.
Psalm 34 OF DAVID.
I will extol the Lord at all times;
his praise will always be on my lips.
2 I will glory in the Lord;
let the afflicted hear and rejoice.
3 Glorify the Lord with me;
let us exalt his name together.
4 I sought the Lord, and he answered me;
he delivered me from all my fears.
5 Those who look to him are radiant;
their faces are never covered with shame.
6 This poor man called, and the Lord heard him;
he saved him out of all his troubles.
7 The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him,
and he delivers them.
8 Taste and see that the Lord is good;
blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
9 Fear the Lord, you his holy people,
for those who fear him lack nothing.
10 The lions may grow weak and hungry,
but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.
11 Come, my children, listen to me;
I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
12 Whoever of you loves life
and desires to see many good days,
13 keep your tongue from evil
and your lips from telling lies.
14 Turn from evil and do good;
seek peace and pursue it.
15 The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous,
and his ears are attentive to their cry;
16 but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil,
to blot out their name from the earth.
17 The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them;
he delivers them from all their troubles.
18 The Lord is close to the brokenhearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
19 The righteous person may have many troubles,
but the Lord delivers him from them all;
20 he protects all his bones,
not one of them will be broken.
21 Evil will slay the wicked;
the foes of the righteous will be condemned.
22 The Lord will rescue his servants;
no one who takes refuge in him will be condemned.
Christians were never promised a live that would be without trial, tribulations and heart break. When I’m feeling upset. down or going through a difficult time, I have learnt that by praying Scriptures have helped to change my way of thinking and provide me comfort like anything else. Praying Psalms 34 is a great one to start with, if you have never prayed! Read the out load or in your head! When we use the Words of God Himself, we can rest assured that we are praying God’s will. There are no worries of putting our own selfishness into prayers.
“Your most profound and intimate experiences of worship will likely be in your darkest days – when your heart is broken, when you feel abandoned, when your out of options, when the pain is great – and you turn to God alone.” ~ Rick Warren
