I had a phone call from a dear friend that prompted me to search for some scripture for a broken heart after my early morning devotional. I immediately recalled a comforting Bible verse that gave me peace in the past after receiving devastating news and picked up my Bible to read these words to her in hopes that they would have the same effect on her that they did for me and that she could get some much needed rest from her troubles.

Psalm 34:18-19

The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.

As we know, even the most dedicated Christians can have a bad day but we know exactly where to go for comfort and guidance, the word of our Lord in the Bible. He in all his wisdom and glory provides to the faithful, scripture for a broken heart, knowing that His followers will have times of sadness and suffering.

Young people more commonly search for comfort relationships fail and breakups follow and older people search for peace during times of bad health or after the passing of a loved one. And then there are those times when we simply have a bad day and need reassurance that the Lord is always with us. Bible verses can heal a broken heart as well as guide us toward salvation.
