He heals the brokenhearted
And binds up their wounds.
(Psalm 147:3, Holy Bible, New King James Version)
The human body has a natural healing process. Cut your finger, and healing begins almost immediately with clotting blood. Within days, new skin forms to replace the open cut. Deeper wounds take longer, but may heal within a few weeks. Break a bone and the knitting process initializes with blood clotting to bridge the gap and regrow the bone from several weeks to months.
A broken heart, unlike physical wounds, can be a slow and painful journey with the absence of specific healing properties to rush to the injured area. No blood clots. No new skin. No bone restructure. Counselors can help, but emotional wellbeing needs a special touch. The Voice translation defines this process as “He… heals the sorrows of their hearts.”
When you need the Great Healer, He is there for you.
Prayer: Lord, thank You for emotional healing. Your touch has healed the sorrows of my heart. Amen.
