A Broken Heart

by djgorena

We recently had the famed Christian music artist, Dallas Holm, in one of our services. He was incredible as usual.

As I sit here this afternoon in my study, I cannot help but be encouraged by a song that he wrote years ago entitled A Broken Heart. The lyrics read as follows:

So you got your heart broke in two,

And you hurt so bad you don’t know what to do;

And you think that you’re the only one who’s ever felt this way,

But there was sure another One another day.

Chorus:

And He died of a broken heart,

It broke for you and me.

He loved us more than words can say,

And more than we could see;

His death was not from pain He felt while hanging on that tree;

No, He died of a broken heart for you and me.

And it seems you’ve come to the end,

And you’re standing all alone without a friend;

And you’re just so sure that no one’s ever hurt this bad before,

But there was One who hurt this bad and even more!

Chorus:

And He died of a broken heart,

It broke for you and me.

He loved us more than words can say,

And more than we could see;

His death was not from pain He felt while hanging on that tree;

Tag:

No, He died of a broken heart

Oh, He died of a broken heart,

Yes, He died because He loves you and me!

It has been such a tough year and half and I just think of what it is that Jesus went through for you and me. Although at times I can feel my broken heart aching, I just remember that Jesus Christ’s heart was so broken for us that He died according to the Scriptures, was buried, and was raised again according to the Scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:3, 4). When I realize again and again that He did all of this for us, I cannot help but thank Him and continue to turn to Him when I feel the pain.

Here are some verses from the Bible that can help you with a broken heart from Quick Scripture Reference for Counseling Youth:

  1. God knows and cares about our broken hearts – Psalm 56:8; Isaiah 61:1; Isaiah 57:15; John 11:33-36.
  2. God is in charge of the events of our lives. He knows what is best – Proverbs 19:21; Isaiah 25:1; Jeremiah 29:11-13; Psalm 33:11; Romans 8:28.
  3. God will respond to our needs. Relief is coming – Psalm 34:18; Psalm 147:3; Ecclesiastes 3:11; John 14:1, 27; Psalm 42:5-6; Psalm 116:7-9.
  4. When we are hurting, God can use that hurt and the comfort He gives us to help others who are hurting – 2 Corinthians 1:3-4.
