Almost exactly 4 years ago I buried a piece of my heart.

And while I’ve definitely been healed, my heart is no longer broken, there are moments when I realize it’s still not completely whole. Honestly, it won’t be until I enter eternity.

I know I’m not the only one who feels this way.

Most, it not every single person reading this has been wounded or broken in one way or another.

Many of you have lifted up a sacrifice of praise to your God.
You have knelt at the feet of Jesus and cried until you didn’t think you had any tears left.
You have ached with such pain you didn’t think it would ever stop.

And yet here you are today, a testimony to the grace and strength of your God. Not only did He walk you through that pain, He brought you to a place where you could once again joyfully praise His Name.

Because that’s how amazing our God is.

I don’t know where you are right now. But I do know what it’s like to smile while hiding a broken heart. Thankfully, I also know what it’s like to feel so full and so blessed you could burst. Beyond that, I know whether your heart is broken or whole praising the Name of Jesus will only bless you.

Even when it hurts.

May you be blessed, Believer, whether you come to God broken or whole. May you find strength and hope in the faithfulness of God. He is a good and kind God. He is in Covenant with you and He keeps His Covenant. That’s just how amazing our God is, even when it hurts.
