25 Encouraging Bible Verses For A Broken Heart

No one ever prays to experience a broken heart, but it happens. A broken heart can come from the passing of a loved one, a breakup, a breach of trust, a divorce, or an opportunity you had prayed for, and worked so hard for that eventually didn’t work out.

The sad thing about a broken heart is that it does not matter how packaged the message was passed across in a bid not to hurt, it still hurts badly.

The HolySpirit is our comforter, and the role of a comforter is to give comfort at all times, so the best person to turn to at this point is God because he is not ashamed of you, he is touched by your tears.

Remember the scripture that says that “we do not have a saviour that is not touched by our infirmities”? God wants you to surrender your pain, and anxiety to him.

He knows how much hurt the experience must have inflicted on you, and he wants to you to communicate your pain to him, there is a balm in Gilead to heal you.

You can do this by meditating on his truths for you, look at his faithfulness over your life in the past years, bless him for that, you can do all of this with the tears pouring down your cheeks. God has you in mind, you are not alone.
