Do You Have a Broken Heart? ~ ?

"I am put out of their heart and forgotten, as if I were dead; I am like a broken jar." (Ps. 31:12)

?

"May Jehovah be praised, For he has heard my pleas for help. Jehovah is my strength and my shield; In him my heart trusts. I have received his help, and my heart rejoices." (Ps.28:6,7)

?

“Those that are broken at heart.” In some cultures, “a broken heart” has reference to unrequited love. But the psalmist’s words refer to “more general grief and sorrow,” says one scholar. 

?

Yes, even faithful worshippers of God may at times experience extreme hardships that break their heart. “Those who are crushed in spirit.”

?

Discouraged ones may become so low in their own eyes that they momentarily lose all hope. A handbook for Bible translators says that this expression may be rendered “those who have nothing good to look forward to.”

?

How does Jehovah respond to those who are “broken at heart” and “crushed in spirit”? Does he keep distant from them, feeling that they are unworthy of his love and attention? On the contrary! 

?

Like a loving parent who holds and comforts a child in distress, Jehovah is near to his worshippers who cry out to him for help. He is eager to comfort and soothe their broken heart and crushed spirit. He can give them the wisdom and strength needed to cope with any trials they may face. (2 Corinthians 4:7; James 1:5)

?

Why not find out how you can draw closer to Jehovah? This compassionate God promises: “I reside . . . with the one crushed and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly ones and to revive the heart of the ones being crushed.” (Isaiah 57:15)
