Healing Hearts

Psalm 147:3(TPT) – He heals the wounds of every shattered heart.

Luke 4:18-19(NKJV) – “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”

The Passion Translation – freedom for the brokenhearted, and new eyes for the blind

Brokenhearted: shattered, smashed, broken in pieces

Wounds: sorrow, grief, painful trauma

Broken heart: a great loss or disappointment. We feel hurt, scorned, forgotten, crushed or rejected.

Return with the Lord

Isaiah 30:18-19 and 21 – So the Lord must wait for you to come to him so he can show you his love and compassion. For the Lord is a faithful God. Blessed are those who wait for his help. O people of Zion, who live in Jerusalem, you will weep no more. He will be gracious if you ask for help. He will surely respond to the sound of your cries. 21 Your own ears will hear him. Right behind you a voice will say, “This is the way you should go, “whether to the right or to the left.
