A PIECE OF MY HEART...Gloom, doom and heartache

Have you ever noticed how many songs on the top 40 are about gloom, doom and heartache? Its been that way for as long as I can remember. Songwriters write about gloom, doom and heartache because that is what real life brings!

Heartache is often linked to romantic let downs, such as boy leaves girl or girl leaves boy. But heartache comes in all kinds of forms not just romantic breakups. No matter what kind of heartache we suffer from, there is one bottomline about having your heart broken and that is it is AGONIZING! Having a broken heart affects much more than just your heart hurting. The kind of gloom, doom and heartache I am talking about is a pain that you feel deep in your gut, it weighs your entire body down.

Have you ever experienced this kind of heartache? The kind that makes you feel like you simply cannot go on?

The Psalmist tells us that we should "Cast our cares on the Lord and He will sustain us!" (Psalm 55:22)

Whether big or small, God cares about the condition of your heart. We cannot look to other things or other people to bring complete restoration to our brokenness ... God is the ultimate healer, even of broken hearts!

Do you have some pieces that need to be put back together? Talk to Him about it!

and thats a piece of my heart today;
