Some broken hearts take longer to heal than others. And that’s okay. Ground yourself in God’s love. Jesus has all the time in the world. Let’s pray…
Lord Jesus, You know this life is tough. We start our days with the best of intentions but in a world full of hurting people we get hurt. Most times our hearts bounce back but sometimes it takes a while.
And we close that part off, thinking we’re protecting ourselves when we’ve only locked the pain inside us. Little by little we build walls we’re trapped behind.
Your love is relentless. You keep knocking. You keep encircling us with your love till the walls fall and we open our hearts. Your love never fails and never gives up, no matter how tightly shut we are.
We are your Father’s children and it hurts You to see us hurting because You love us and know the blessings DADDY God has for us.
Lord root us and ground us in your love. Love on us till our roots reach out, grab hold and drink deep. Till we’re filled with the fullness of God instead of sorrow.
Thank You for pursuing us with love, along with goodness and mercy, all the days of our lives.
We are a blessed people and it’s in your name we pray—Amen.
