I got a text last night stating that a friend just found out that her best friend has just been given seven months to live. I also just got done having coffee with one of my closest friends that is dealing with the harsh side effects of an eight month journey battling hodgkin’s disease. Just two months ago, we just walked with our friends as they grieved through the loss of a parent.

All of these situations are absolutely heartbreaking. But all of them are spoken to directly in the Scriptures. If you are walking through something today that is breaking your heart, know that God is fully aware and fully engaged. And only he is able to bring peace, perspective and healing.

Psalm 34:18 – The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed.
