Psalm 34:19

The LORD is close to the brokenhearted, saves those whose spirit is crushed.

The Christian narrative is beautiful and comforting.

In this religion, we see a God who wants to be intimately with us.

In the Gospel of Matthew, it says that Mary will have a son who will be named Emmanuel which means “God with us” (Matthew 1:23).

God is “made flesh” in Jesus.

And Jesus said that we could know God by knowing him (John 14:7).

And who do we see in Jesus?

Someone who reached out to the hurting and healed them.

Someone who advocated feeding the hungry, welcoming the stranger, clothing the naked and visiting the imprisoned (Matthew 25).

We see someone who stood up to the injustice of government and religious leaders but always in a non-violent way.

The way of Jesus was compassion.

Even when he is cruelly put to death, Jesus responded with forgiveness (Luke 23:34).

So if you are struggling, are feeling brokenhearted, or if you feel your spirit is crushed, come to Jesus.

Call out to him and be confident that his presence is readily available in each moment.

Set aside time for silent rest in his Healing Presence.
