Gathering the Broken in Heart

Psalm 34:17-19 (VOICE) When the upright need help and cry to the Eternal, He hears their cries and rescues them from all of their troubles. When someone is hurting or brokenhearted, the Eternal moves in close and revives him in his pain. Hard times may well be the plight of the righteous— they may often seem overwhelmed — but the Eternal rescues the righteous from what oppresses them.

Broken hearts – some full of scars, so much pain fills their memoirs,
Finding it hard to break loose from the memory of it all. Continue reading “Gathering the Broken in Heart”
