The Lord is Close to the Brokenhearted

Several times in these past few days I have been reminded of how painful that life can be as I have heard about and seen the struggles faced by others.

As I was praying about this I was reminded of these words from Psalm 34 v18:

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

When we are struggling, we might get supportive cards or e-mails but the thing that we often crave is to have someone who will walk with us in our pain.

I love the way that God especially wants us to know that he is close to us when we are feeling brokenhearted. He walks with his followers always but he wants to remind us that he is close when we are feeling low or are in pain.

If you’re struggling, brokenhearted and in pain then I hope and pray that you will know and experience God’s presence that is with you.
