Day 7: The Brokenhearted


She "fought the good fight".

She "finished the race".

She "kept the faith" (2 Timothy 4:7-8)

Down to her last SECOND on earth,

and then KYLE passed onto heaven.

A mother of three little girls.

A wife.

A daughter.

Her heart continued to beat JOY throughout her being,

as she pressed forward,

through every treatment,

through every obstacle,

as a SMILE always remained.  

She has left a legacy of

FAITH

to her three little girls,

to her husband,

to her mother.

But now

her children,

her husband,

her mother,

and so many more

remain on earth,

while KYLE has been set free

from every ailment.

Now GRIEF remains in the HEARTS left behind.

GRIEF always exists,

where there is LOVE. 

If there wasn't LOVE

 where would GRIEF be,

but if there wasn't LOVE where would GOD be?

Where is GOD when GRIEF hits your BROKEN HEART?

RIGHT THERE & RIGHT HERE

because GOD so LOVES

that HE SENT JESUS

to enter into

GRIEF

to

"heal the BROKENHEARTED" (Luke 4:18).

 BROKENHEARTED~

A SHATTERED HEART.

A FRACTURED HEART

A HURTING HEART.

ALL BROKENNESS

that hits your

 HEART

like a freight train

 through death,

through a BROKEN relationship

through a BROKEN circumstance

through a BROKEN feeling.

BROKEN IS BROKEN,

BUT JESUS has come to HEAL BROKEN.

TO HEAL~

"To release from the destructive effects of brokenness" (Renner).

TO RELEASE!

Oh will there will be continued

SECONDS of TEARS for the LOSS.

Oh yes.

TEARS RELEASE the pressure from a BROKEN HEART.

GRIEF HURTS

and so does

JESUS.

JESUS HURTS with you in those SECONDS of GRIEF,

and that is why

HE came TO HEAL THE BROKENHEARTED.

TO HEAL is to make WHOLE again.

For where there is LOSS

 there is

JESUS,

 who

HOLDS you when the one who is no longer here

is there to HOLD you.

JESUS can not REPLACE

 those who have gone before you to heaven,

or even those who have chosen to not be in your life.

BUT JESUS was left behind

to enter into the BROKEN spaces and places of your HEART

to do what only HE can do,

and what HIS FATHER has PROMISED HE can do~

"If your heart is broken, you’ll find GOD right there;if you’re kicked in the gut,

HE'LL help you catch your breath"

(Psalm 34:18 MSG).

As long as you have BREATHING SECONDS

you will experience

the JOYS and the SORROWS of LIFE.

As long as you are BREATHING in your SECONDS

you WILL experience

HIS HEALING of those

BROKEN SPACES,

SECOND by SECOND

as JESUS becomes your BREATH.

And one day

there will NEVER EVER EVER

 be a need for

GRIEF

because

"HE will wipe away every tear from their eyes,

and death shall be no more,

 neither shall there be mourning, nor crying,

 nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away"

(Revelation 21:4).

KYLE

has been RELEASED from

all her pain,

yet leaving those behind to

GRIEVE her great loss.

Please keep

her family in your prayers

as JESUS HEALS their

BROKEN HEARTS,

through this time

as they

WAIT,

for the moment when

ALL IN CHRIST

will

ARISE TOGETHER

to be

FREE FOREVER

from all

BROKENNESS.

But as we all

WAIT,

let's take each precious

SECOND

to

experience

JESUS

in every

"HARD SEASON"
