Are you facing heartbreak? Having a broken heart is one of the hardest life obstacles to overcome. During these times when we feel the lowest is when God can show Himself to us the most. His word gives us the encouragement we need to press on.
Moving past the disappointment and burden of a broken heart is a big task. It can hinder us from being who God has called us to be. What if your brokenness could be wiped away? God knows what you are feeling and going through because He has seen it before. This isn’t his first rodeo! He even made time to write down His advice for you so that when you are feeling down or He feels far away and out of reach, you can always find reassurance. If you are experiencing brokenness, these verses are for you.
