Power For The Brokenhearted

Power For The BrokenheartedWhen do I feel whole again?

Maybe you have asked this question while recovering from a broken relationship. Betrayal, divorce, abuse and deception often cause overwhelming feelings of inadequacy, sorrow and anguish.  Whether it is a spouse, friend or family member – damaged personal relationships can be some of the hardest to overcome.

These distressing situations work to steal your joy.  They cause fear to torment you and hinder your love walk from thriving.  The good news is that God does not want you to live this way.  You are not alone and there is help.  Today is the day to be whole again!

How you may ask?

By relinquishing yourself and your emotions to God. He is the only one who can make you whole.  Do not allow your heart to become hardened, but open it up to the promises of God. Your happiness and well-being are of the utmost importance to Him.

And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace
[Who imparts all blessing and favor], Who has called you to His [own] eternal glory in Christ Jesus, will Himself complete and make you what you ought to be, establish and ground you securely, and strengthen, and settle you.
– 1 Peter 5:10 (Amplified Bible Translation)

Take small steps of faith toward a closer relationship with Him by going as deep as you can in His Word. There you will find truth, peace and encouragement for moving forward! Discover for yourself how God has already made provisions for your healing and wholeness.

Here are a few points for you to reflect on:

  • He will make something beautiful out of any dark and dirty situation in your life.  (Isaiah 61:1-3)
  • He will restore your health and heal all your wounds – emotional and physical.  (Jeremiah 30:16-17)
  • Be patient. He will handle the situation in His perfect timing and in His way.
    (2 Thessalonians 1:6-10)
  • He sent His Son, Jesus and the Holy Spirit to guide and comfort you through the tribulations of life. He wants you to live abundantly! (John 10:9-11)
  • You are brand new! Everything in your past is forgotten when you accept Jesus Christ into your life. (2 Corinthians 5:17-19)
  • He will restore to you one hundred times more than you lost to follow Him. (Mark 10:29-31)

Praise God! You are free to forgive and love again. Emotional healing is a process, but you will feel whole sooner than you ever imagined. Wholeness is yours through the love and power of God!

The Power of Compassion – No Questions Asked

compassionLately, I have been intrigued by the power of compassion. Compassion is not only defined as a sympathetic consciousness of another’s distress, but it also includes a strong desire to alleviate the suffering.  Through my own life, I search to find how I can cultivate this unique spiritual force.

Jesus is a great example of compassion.

And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude,
and was moved with compassion toward them,
and he healed their sick – Matthew 14:14

So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes:
and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed him. – Matthew 20:34

And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him,
and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean. – Mark 1:41

One thing I realized about Jesus is that He did not inquire for specific details. He was not curious to know the cause for the pain, shame, loss or disease.  Although Jesus could discern the heart of men, His compassion moved Him to heal everyone regardless of their circumstance.  You would not find Him saying things like…

What happened to you?
How did you get yourself in this mess?
I am only willing to help a little.
Why didn’t you come to me first?
Explain what you have done to help yourself.
Have you learned a lesson from all of this?
This is what you get.

Jesus demonstrated compassion.  No questions asked.

He wants us to come to Him for our healing and our complete restoration. Jesus is the only one who can set us free from all evil and wickedness. His compassion comes without judgement and without condemnation.

God had compassion and sent His only son, Jesus to alleviate all our pain and suffering. Jesus had compassion and laid down His life so that we could have an abundant one. The power of compassion is fueled by love and does not require an explanation.  Praise God!

 Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another,
love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous:
not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing;
knowing that ye are thereunto called,
that ye should inherit a blessing. – 1 Peter 3:8-9
