God heals the brokenhearted

~

But you, God, see the trouble of the

~

afflicted; you consider their grief

~

and take it in hand. The victims

~~

commit themselves to you …

~~

Psalm 10:14

 

~

~

The Lord builds up Jerusalem (and those who are grieving)

He gathers the exiles …

He heals the brokenhearted

and binds up their wounds.

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted

and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous

and His ears are attentive to their cry.

~

Cry out to God Most High …

He sends from heaven and saves you, …

God sends His love and His faithfulness.

He does not ignore the cry of the afflicted.

~

Whoever who dwells in the shelter of the Most

High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

He will cover you with his feathers,

and under His wings you will find refuge

His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

Psalm 147:2-3; Psalm 34:18,15; Psalm 57:2-3* slight change

Psalm 9:12; Psalm 91:1,4

My eyes are dim with grief. 
I call to you, Lord, every day;
I spread out my hands to you.
 
 Psalm 88:9

On Friday night, I went to bed thinking about Psalm 88:9 and asking myself the question,”Can you ever be prepared for grief?” On Saturday, I woke up to the news that Ty, the son of my close friends Ty and Nancy, had been in a serious car accident and was on life support.  Then this morning, I received the gut-wrenching news, “Ty is gone.  They are donating his organs.”

The devastating sorrow I now feel is answering my own question: “No, you can never be prepared for grief.  You can only be prepared to receive comfort by knowing the source of true comfort.”
~
No guilt in life, no fear in death —
This is the power of Christ in me;
From life’s first cry to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny.
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from his hand;
Till he returns or calls me home —
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand.
