Broken People With Hurting Hearts

Today as people gather to celebrate Valentine’s Day, let’s take a moment to remember that there are broken people with hurting hearts all around us. Although this day is traditionally one for many to share an expression of love with the special people in their lives, this may not be a day of celebration for everyone.

If you’re hurting today, missing your loved one, please know you are seen and not alone. There is a God who loves us unconditionally and is holding tight to our loved ones who have run ahead to heaven before us.

Love is more than hearts and flowers. Though we may be broken people with hurting hearts, grief is a natural form of love. Grief is just love with no place to go. My hope today is to remember the love more than the loss. I will reflect on a well-known scripture that says: “And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:13

When I woke this morning, the words to the song, I Will Carry You, were playing in my heart. As I listened to the song closer, they became words of comfort from my Heavenly Father.

As the day unfolds, I hope you will hold on to the hope that we will see our loved ones again one day, and until then, God will carry us through. Please take a moment to listen and let God’s love wash over you. With His Everlasting Love, Pat

I know you’re tired, I see it in your eyes
All that anxiety that rules your mind
I’ll be your shield when you don’t feel
Like you’ve got strength enough to fight
I’ll stand by your side

I will carry you
Through your darkest night
When you’re terrified
I will carry you
When the waters rise
When your hope runs dry
I will carry you

  1. Oh gosh, yes. Holidays are not “holidays” for everyone. Years later, I can still feel what my loved ones would have wanted for me on this day and that helps fuel me.
