My Heart Hurts Lord!

This was such a timely reminder to me today that God Loves me!  when I heard this song it just hit everything I’ve been going through so much pain suffering asking God to take my mountain but He doesn’t but keeps telling me to trust Him.  This week has been hard.
Today around noon, I have received some news about my past marriage that crushed my spirit. I felt this huge pressure in my heart. I fell on the floor and cried out “it hurts so bad!” to the Lord. Over and over again, with tears flowing out of my eyes.  I have not felt that broken or cried that much in a long time.

You know what I want to do with my hurting heart?  I want to take it on a tour so all my friends can hug my hurting heart, I need Someone in my corner, That Someone is God.

Have you ever noticed that no one can heal your hurting heart? As a matter of fact, sometimes it’s even a puzzle to you why your heart hurts. Things can seem to be in place. Things can appear okay, but deep down, you know they aren’t.  As hard as you try to put on a happy face or be thankful, you still feel like you’re falling apart.

Scripture says that blessed are the poor in spirit and that God is close to the broken-hearted. Tears are the economy of the broken-hearted kingdom, and I am making sure that every single one of them falls at the feet of my loving and compassionate God.

I know that today I am not the only person in this world whose heart is sad but surrendered. That’s why I’m writing this – I hope it finds someone else who is so very sad but is so very certain of a God who cares and hears. Sometimes it’s hard to be sad and full of joy at the same time, but from everything I’ve read in the Bible, it is hard but it is probably the best place to be because God is close by.

When we go to God in prayer, we’re admitting we need help. When we kneel before our Heavenly Father, it’s like we’re climbing into the lap of the King of kings. He’s sovereign. He sees all things and knows all things. But most of all, if we have confessed our sins and called on Jesus to be our Savior and Lord, then God is also our Abba Father. He cares about us. He wants to help our broken heart.

If your heart is hurting today, why not go to God?  Kneel.  Pray, “God, show me why my heart is hurting. If I have any ownership in why it hurts by harsh words I’ve said, by being unfaithful to You, by caring more about what is happening around me than you Father; Lord, forgive me. I repent and ask You to help me live as You want me to live. Give me Your perspective, strength, and insight. Heal my heart. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”

There is help for the hurting heart. And the healing begins when we put Jesus in the center of our hearts.

My name is Cheryl Downum, 2015 was a difficult year for me. I chose to separate from my husband because of his unrepentant abusive behavior and a year later we divorced. I moved from Atascadero ca to the Temecula Valley in Socal. As I’ve walked this journey, I’ve found myself growing closer to Jesus. My heart is now infused with empathy for others that find themselves in this place. And, God has given me a story, a message of hope to share. A message birthed in my brokenness that brought forth a sweet-surrendered dependence on God’s unconditional acceptance and love. The reason I am writing this blog is; I have found in my life that the Lord often uses our deepest pain as the launching pad to our deepest calling. My desire is to encourage His children to seek a deeper relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. I hope that as you read my blog, you will feel inspired and encouraged. Thank you for visiting!
