Broken Hearted

Broken Hearted
Broken Pieces

The LORD is close to the broken hearted … -Ps 34:18 NLT

broken[07665] = shattered in pieces

He heals the broken hearted and binds up their wounds [curing their pains and their sorrows]. -Ps 147:3 AMP

bind[02280] = bandage, encourage, doctor, heal
wounds[06094] = pain, hurt, injury, sorrow, troubles

Trust that the LORD is near
Trust that the Prince of Peace
Can take our broken pieces and give
His unbroken peace.

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. -Jn 14:27

Broken things can become blessed things if you let God do the mending.

Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you. -2Thess 3:16


Broken Hearts and Shining Stars

May 21, 2011

Philippians 2:15-16 AMPC … show yourselves to be blameless and guiltless, innocent and uncontaminated, children of God without blemish (faultless, unrebukable) in the midst of a crooked and wicked generation [spiritually perverted and perverse], among whom you are seen as bright lights (stars or beacons shining out clearly) in the [dark] world, holding out [to it] and offering [to all men] the Word of Life, so that in the day of Christ I may have something of which exultantly to rejoice and glory in that I did not run my race in vain or spend my labor to no purpose.

Bright shining stars, holding forth the word of life
Oaks of righteousness stand anointed

Their leaves are for the healing of the nations -Rev 22:1-2;Ez 47:12
Like hands offering life
To bind up and heal the brokenhearted
To comfort all who mourn
To bestow a crown of beauty instead of ashes
… the oil of joy instead of mourning
… a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.
Isa 61 AMP

Psalm 34:18 The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

Psalm 147:3-5 He heals the brokenhearted, and binds up their wounds. He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name. Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite.

Oaks of righteousness stand anointed
Bright shining stars established/planted by the Lord’s hand
Broken hearts healed
Shining before the nations declaring His praise.

Isaiah 61:10-11 MSG … I will sing for joy in God, explode in praise from deep in my soul! He dressed me up in a suit of salvation, He outfitted me in a robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom who puts on a tuxedo and a bride a jeweled tiara. For as the earth bursts with spring wildflowers, and as a garden cascades with blossoms, so the Master, God, brings righteousness into full bloom and puts praise on display before the nations.
