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; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord. – Luke 4-18-19 NKJV

How do we heal from a broken heart? When a mate, friendship, or other close relationship falls, it can be painful, and it can also hinder our future if we let it. We may hesitate to love again with our whole heart. The fear of experiencing pain keeps parts of us behind walls of false protection. 

There is no guarantee that we will not get hurt again, but wallowing in that possibility stops us from trusting new people. It causes them to reap what others have sown. This fear steals the potential of our new relationships and keeps us bound to the past. The Spirit of Christ can heal the broken heart. Only He knows how to put the pieces back together. His love conquers all.

God wants us to face our brokenness instead of covering it. When we surrender those hidden places to Him, we give Him access to areas we cannot deal with on our own. He removes locks, free us from bonds, and makes us whole. His love never fails. His healing tears down the walls, brings wholeness, and renews our hope,  from glory to glory.
