He can heal your broken heart . . .
Be still and know that He is God . . . beloved!
Rest Within Me Beloved . . .
As the wrath of God now comes, Mine are to rest within Me, saith the Lord God Almighty.
Many Beings are brought to their knees as their mouths confess My Son, Jesus Christ, openly. Mouths that once belonged to satan and
his, become Mine; and hearts are turned quickly toward Me and My love.
Children, many will seek you. This is because I have become one with all of Mine through My heart and mind within each of you. Many upon the earth, and all in heaven
have now become the testimony of Christ. Christ, My Son, is the Word (see 1 Cor. 1:4-6; Rev. 19:11-13). Lives are changed as He, His Spirit, moves within you and through you. The power of God is unleashed through you, My Children. In this, the sons of God
are seen and known (see Rom. 8:14-19).
The power of God is harnessed within the love of Christ, which is now alive within all of My Children, saith the LORD God Almighty. Now, many who suffer are brought into Christ’s reality within
themselves. The power of Christ, God Almighty, and the holiness of God’s Spirit explodes throughout the earth and heaven; and there is a refuge given to all who manifest this love. Come into the safe place named “Love” now, and become as
I AM, Amen Amen and again Amen. Come into My Love and be safe. I am your safe place, and I am experienced only within Love, Amen.
Father continue to fill us all
with the Fulness of Yourself, Love, Chris
When a Broken Heart Heals . . .
I want to be with You God forever . . .
Speak the Word and be encouraged beloved . . .

THE PLACE WHERE THE BEST THINGS HAPPEN
by Allison Bown
What would you think if you saw these advertisements
tucked into your Bible the next time you opened it?
Available immediately: Secret Place with God with a 24/7 view of His beauty.
Fine Dining: 1st
class table and gourmet meals direct from heaven. Immediate seating open.
Penthouse for Occupancy: Solid rock foundation, 360' water vistas.
Sounds great, right?
They are available... and Psalms 27 tells us where.
In this Psalm, David expresses a longing that many of us feel: To lead a "One Thing" life. To dwell in the house of the
Lord all of our days. To behold God's beauty and inquire in His temple. To let God set us on a high on a rock, where we can't be moved.
But take note of where this prime real estate is located: "In the
time of trouble". (verse 5) For years, I've kept missing that part.
What I'm discovering on this journey is that the access to the Secret Place opens widest when life is at its worst. "In
the time of trouble, He shall hide me in His pavilion. In the secret place of His dwelling He shall hide me...He will set me high upon a rock... above my enemies all around me."
like the classic opening line of Dickens Tale of Two Cities; "It was the best of times. It was the worst of times." In the worst of times, God is at His best.
When I am at my most stupid, He
is at His most brilliant... in a way that makes me feel brilliant too.
When I am lost, God finds me and hugs me; without lectures on why I shouldn't have wandered off in the first place. His love
at that moment makes me want to follow Him and we can go further and faster than before.
When warfare rages around me, He is at peace, usually talking about something completely
unrelated to my circumstances. He elevates me from my ground level perspective with His smile and His majesty. As I continue to behold Him during these times, I find I am becoming more like Him in my responses.
when all is said and done, it is my own story with God that is turning the worst of times into the place where the best things happen.
Someone else's testimony IS a powerful and scriptural weapon,
but only if I process it into my own life. Another person's experience with God can bring insight, comfort and initial breakthrough, but it will be my encounter with Him in the "time of trouble" that will establish that truth
in my life.
He is your hiding place . . . put your trust in Him!
I trust in you God!
Serious thinking here . . .
Heartbreak is more than just an emotional defeat; to some the pain is very real. At one point or another, everyone must experience this mind numbing feeling (unless you confine yourself to a house and never interact with even
a pet) but that's not the norm and you're probably not reading this article if you've had that kind of sheltered life.
be caused by many different circumstances and that's what makes this emotion easily recognized by nearly every person on the planet. It can result from the loss of a loved one, a partner, a friend and even a close pet. Or it can be caused from disappointment,
betrayal or a change from known surroundings. It might not even be a loss at all but a sense of loss, or the realization that the love of the person you care most for is drifting far from where it had always been.
in the same perspective as heartbreak, neither has a corrective definition nor specific amplitude implied by the physical word itself. There's a never-ending limit to the definition of love because there are so many things we love and in many different ways.
There's friendship love, love for animals and possessions, love for music or hey, even food. Then there's that kind of love that is so overwhelming perfect, passionate and meaningful, a love that you have never before been able to achieve. This is the
love we're going to be talking about throughout this article, but before we can continue on, we must first understand why we as humans are constantly searching to fulfill this emotion.
A part of the desire comes from what we find most joyful in life. If you search for this answer, and look upon previous actions objectively, it's simple
to say that we are satisfied by making others happy. We receive complete satisfaction from doing things for others, and this feeling increases with the intensity of love we feel towards that specific person or thing. When you lose someone you love, you
have lost the sense of purpose acquired by the relationship between them and yourself. You lose the purpose you felt when doing simple things to make them smile, and making yourself joyful in return. The cycle should continue endlessly, but as we know that
could only occur in a perfect world, which this is not. Heartbreak happens, and it changes who we are for the better (in most cases) and so will it be for the rest of our lives and next.
"We of course equate the pain
of loss to the intensity of the love, but that is not what is behind the pain. The more you love and feel loved, the greater the increase of your sense of purpose because when you do something for just anyone and they do not appreciate it; your sense of purpose
is not completely satisfied. It requires seeing who you are helping, and their appreciation to make it complete." says personal developer, David Samuel.
Continuous searching comes from our need not only to self imply
a purpose of being, but also to find the "one" that will make us feel needed, appreciated, and most importantly, well, loved. We act in some silly ways just to be able to have a someone that we can call our own. We act crazy, we do stupid things, and
we make regrettable mistakes, but hey, that's just falling in love. We start picturing the rest of days together, share every ounce of pointless information we can recall, and create a bond greater than ever perceived, all before a thought of those three little
words comes to mind.
The Physical Pain
who's ever gone through the emotional pain of a heartbreak more often than not can express the experience through the form of some type of physical pain. Emotions affect physical health in more ways than many realize, but how does the body physically feel
the emotional loss; in other words, what is it that brings pain to the heartbreak?
"Pain is the way the mind responds to trouble inside the body," says Alex Zautra, a professor of psychology at Arizona State University. "Emotion is
the same way. Whether you feel love or sadness is also a response to something you feel outside the body. With pain it is a closer-in response, to something inside the body, but it is a response in an attempt to learn about and motivate recovery."
The depression caused by heartbreak creates a barrier that can prevent us from feeling and experiencing life to the fullest, in all aspects. Symptoms vary byindividual and range from withdrawal from society to
and pain. You lose a part of yourself when connections are lost, and its not far-fetched to say that you feel completely empty inside. There's an ache, a deep ache that erupts from the inside of our bodies longing for the past. The pain is real and there's
no other way to describe how bad it really hurts than to name it heartbreak. Its a longing for the past and the pain of feeling completely empty and abandoned. It makes it hard to get up in the morning and to get through the day, but all wounds are inevitably
healed through time, and thus you hope for the future to approach quicker.
When a person feels secluded or feels loss, changes in the brain's blood flow occur. The anterior cingulate cortex (responsible for regulating physical pain
distress) becomes more active during these times. This is seen in victims of depression who also register physical pain due to the detection of nociception, which triggers
a variety of responses, one which results in the experience of pain. People who are depressed or who are under extreme stress are more at risk to develop heart disease and other cardiovascular diseases based on research that found depression to help in thickening
artery walls .
Although most pain of heartbreak is not that severe, it still has a profound effect on daily living. Symptoms of breakup might include loss of appetite, insomnia, headaches, stomachaches,
nausea, a ton of tears, occasional nightmares, alcohol/substance abuse, depression, eating disorders, panic attacks, loss of interest, fatigue, loneliness and hopelessness.
The Stages of Heartbreak:
Someone who is dealing with heartbreak follows patterns similar to those of the stages of death
1.Shock and Denial- you may deny the reality of the situation; this provides emotional protection from feeling overwhelmed
by the situation. The shock of loss allows a state of emptiness to move in, clouding most judgment.
2.Pain and Guilt-after the shock wears off it becomes replaced with suffering and unbearable pain. Regret for things you
did wrong, or things that you weren’t able to do with this person adds to further tears. Life feels chaotic during this time, and its best to openly discuss feelings and stray from bottling up your emotions
3. Anger and Bargaining- lashing
out is a common form of attempting to release all unspoken emotions. This is the stage where the “why why why?!” questioning comes in. The pleas for returned love run rapid, trying to bargain with fate or with the person who was just lost.
4. Depression, Reflection, and Loneliness- like everyone else in this situation, a period of sadness clouds and
absorb your entire sense of being, leaving feelings of emptiness. This feeling occurs when you finally realize
and accept the magnitude of your loss. Isolation from people is exceedingly normal, and offers a time to reflect on the past.
5. Acceptance and an Upward Turn- The feelings of depression lift slightly and life becomes
possible to survive without that person so deeply intertwined with each activity. The days are a little easier to shuffle through, and you see the possibility of continuation. The reality of the situation is fully accepted and, although happiness may not return
for some time, the ability to move forward has occurred.
Can Heartbreak Occur- Literally?
According to studies on heartbreak and how it affects people, most of whom women, a connection can be
found between emotional pain and a literal form of heartbreak- heart attack. Depression is documented to affect its host physically and so is the case with heartbreak. The emotional stress is harmful and is said to possibly be cause for what's known
as Broken Heart Syndrome.
By Ashley Cox
Note to reader: "I almost died of the 'broken heart syndrome'
and what saved my life was hearing from God during my quiet time with the Lord. So it is important to spend time with the Lord every day of your life . . . espcially when you are broken hearted." Miss Shelly
King James Version (KJV)
unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall
find rest unto your souls.
Heal a broken heart . . .
by Wayne Cordeiro
All of us have experienced heartbreaks. They can be quite tragic, and though they may not end your life, they can stop some people from living life.
may be a broken heart over a family member going astray. It may be a broken heart over someone you were expecting to marry, but then you were jilted. It may be a broken heart over a missed job promotion. Basically, a broken heart can happen when your heart
is set on something or someone and you were jilted.
The question is not if you will experience a broken heart, but when.
And when it does happen, how will you heal a broken heart?
Allow me to suggest four steps to healing a broken
heart. Then let the Holy Spirit apply these to your heart! Here’s what to do to survive and successfully heal when a broken heart hits you:
- Do Not Fear a Broken Heart
First, do not fear a broken heart. This
may sound a little odd—of course we all fear getting hurt—but there’s great truth to it. Every one of us will go through one or many broken-hearted experiences. Don’t fear them; just understand that they’re a part of living life.
God knew this; that’s why Jesus came. He says so, as He tells us His purpose. Jesus said:
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the afflicted. He has sent me to bind up the broken hearted”
The very reason Jesus came was because He knew people had broken hearts. God understands a broken heart.
- Let Every Heartbreak Draw You Closer to God
“Trust in Him at all times … pour
out your hearts to Him; for God is our refuge” (Ps. 62:8).
When heartbreak happens, let it draw you closer to God. Pour out your heart to Him and let Him become a much-needed refuge. You see, your heart will break regardless, but don’t let
it break and fall in the direction of the enemy, whose purpose is to steal, kill and destroy. Rather, let your heart break and fall in the direction of the Lord – the One who loves and protects you.
You can choose to become one of two things:
bitter or better. If you fall on the side of the enemy, you’ll surely become bitter. But if you let your heart break on the Lord, He’ll heal you and help you redeem what was meant for evil for something good. He’ll redeem your broken heart!
- Let God Heal Your Heart Quickly!
God heals the brokenhearted! In fact, His Word promises so:
“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds” (Ps. 147:3).
Scripture also tells us that
God can “heal me and I will be healed.” That means He can do that instantly as well! However, the power of healing is up to Him. His power is unquestionable and instantly available. He can heal quickly, but you decide how quickly that will be.
Sometimes we don’t want God to heal our heart because it gives us recourse. It gives us the right to be the way we are against the person who wronged us. And it gives us an excuse to live below what we should. If you don’t let God heal your
broken heart, you can develop a broken spirit.
There is a big difference between having a broken heart and having a broken spirit. We can handle a broken heart, but a broken spirit takes the wind out of your sails. It takes the wind of the Spirit out
of your relationship with God.
God says a broken spirit is devastating. Never, ever let any circumstance break your spirit. In Christ, we are victorious – you are someone who has received eternal life. But when you have a broken spirit, you give
up your inheritance.
You decide how long your healing will take. The more time it takes, the more vulnerable you are to a broken spirit. So let Him heal your broken heart quickly.
- Set Your Heart on That Which Cannot be Broken!
Set your heart on Jesus and then keep it fixed on Him forever. This will help you not to suffer a broken heart or a broken spirit. It will help you to stay strong.
“Lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust
destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal; for where you treasure is, there will your heart be also” (Matt. 6:20-21).
Treasure Jesus more than any relationship, any promotion or any dream in the world. How do you bring all of your desires
into submission and alignment? Simply by making your greatest desire Jesus. When we make Jesus our greatest treasure, then we will experience the heart of Jesus.
All of us will experience a broken heart in a broken-hearted world. But we serve and love
a God who can redeem a broken heart and bring redemption to you and everyone around you. Allow Him to heal your heart today!
