God's truth for today's world.

If you are feeling broken, there is one person who understands this and it is Jesus. We are all familiar with the feeling of helplessness and hopelessness when our lives don’t quite work the way you hoped they would. If you are feeling low and could use some uplifting, Jesus understands how you feel and he wants to help. Let him into your life and pray to him, tell him how you are feeling and it can help to heal your broken heart and your broken spirit.

Key Takeaways:

  • If you are feeling broken and kicked to the ground then you are not alone.
  • You probably try to avoid your pain no matter the cost, like by using alcohol.
  • If you hand over your broken self over to Jesus he can help to take a bit of that pain away.

“They will do anything they can to avoid the pain and to ignore the pain. The problem when you take this road is that you never really deal with the brokenness. The heartache is still there and will even intensify when the anesthesia wears off.”
