A BROKEN HEART
A broken heart is not unfamiliar to many because they may have had their heart broken, or may have broken some else’s heart or both. I recently read an article that said, “You Really Can Die of a Broken Heart,’ New Research Finds: We all know that feeling after a breakup; You literally feel heartsick. While you may think the term “broken heart” is just an expression, scientists now say severe stress can indeed bring on “broken heart syndrome,” or what’s been known as takotsubo cardiomyopathy. The syndrome carries risks similar to a heart attack and takes place when sharp spikes in adrenaline from acute stress, like the loss of a loved one, cause movement in part of the heart wall, which then spurs cardiac arrest. Scientists are now doing further research to determine who may be susceptible to developing the condition and how to treat it.”
Anyone who has had a Broken Heart never forgets it even while spending perhaps years trying to get over it. Then I read this from The Psalms:
“The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears,
And delivers them out of all their troubles.
The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart,
And saves such as have a contrite spirit.
Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
But the Lord delivers him out of them all.”
Lord, come heal and comfort the brokenhearted today.
“The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed.” Jesus
