15 Bible Verses To Mend Your Broken Heart

15 Bible Verses To Mend Your Broken Heart

Through it all, He is good.

C.S. Lewis once said, "Life with God is not immunity from difficulties, but peace in difficulties." As followers of Christ, we are not promised a free pass to perfection, but what we are promised is the forever certainty that we will find refuge in Him. As I reflect on the difficulties that this life brings me, I find comfort in his word. I decided to reflect on Scripture and compose a list of verses that have given me strength throughout my life. If you need some peace in difficult times, I hope this can be it.

1) "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go." - Joshua 1:9

2) "'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'" - Jeremiah 29:11

3) "He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds." - Psalm 147:3

4) "Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you." - Deuteronomy 31:6

5) "I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us." - Romans 8:18

6) "The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever." - Isaiah 40:8

7) "The wicked flee though no one pursues, but the righteous are as bold as a lion." - Proverbs 28:1

8) "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." - Philippians 4:6-7

10) "I can do all this through Him who gives me strength." - Philippians 4:13

11) "For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." - Romans 8:38-39

12) "Mightier than the thunder of the great waters, mightier than the breakers of the sea—the Lord on high is mighty." - Psalm 93:4

13) "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you." - Hebrews 13:5

14) "So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." - Isaiah 41:10

15) "He says, 'Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.' The Lord Almighty is with us." - Psalm 46:10-11

12 Bible Verses For Faith In Hard Times

Remind yourself that God is always with you.

Lately, I have felt lost at what God wants for my life. Ever since I've come back to UWG everything has been horrible. It seems that I can't catch a break. I'm trying my best to focus on school, work, and extracurricular activities. But it's hard when I'm having issues with my apartment/roommates and knowing my family back home is struggling and needs many prayers. All, I keep thinking is maybe Carrollton isn't where I belong anymore. I've asked God if He can guide me in the right direction. Below, I have found Bible verses that have helped get me through these rough, past couple of weeks.

1. Isaiah 43:2

"When you go through deep waters, I will be with you."

"Commit your way to the Lord. Trust in Him, and He will act."

Even If Christianity Isn't Real, I Did Not Waste My Life

"Life with God is not immunity from difficulties, but peace within difficulties." -C.S Lewis


If Christianity isn't real then I wasted my life.

Christians wasted their lives.

Wasted time on fellowship with other Christians who encouraged each other, prayed for each other and loved people.

Wasted time attending church services that convicted us and taught us more about Jesus, and topics that related to our lives.

And for what?

For a community of other people who shared in similar struggles.

Is Christianity just a phase people go through during a hard time, until they reach the end of it?

Is Christianity for weak people who need something to believe in?

Is the Bible a book written by random people who created stories, that happened to align with history, and co-inside with true historical characters?

Is it all just a religion like the rest of them? Someone to believe in, rules to follow, traditions to uphold.

See I don't think so.

I think if God isn't real, none of us have truly wasted our lives.

We lived selflessly, we lived to serve others, we tried our best to love our neighbors like ourselves.

The church has served with various organizations, and within communities to better society and help during times of crisis or natural disaster.

If Christianity is for the weak, then how is it that mothers who have lost children, people who have lost their homes, and disasters that have rattled our nation not managed to bring Christians down? Because of hope.

Because even in the toughest times, and heart-wrenching experiences, we found our hope in God.

And through Him, we have accomplished great things.

Christianity isn't a group of individuals who think they are perfect, or who seek perfection, but rather individuals who know they are far from imperfect. Who have humbled themselves enough to realize they don't have everything put together.

And if we're wrong, what do we really lose?

But if we're right, what happens to everyone else?

Christianity itself by no means is perfect.

But Jesus is.

Christianity has mocked the name of God through horrendous acts.

But we are not the example, Christians don't define who God is.

Christianity doesn't have to be real to you, as long as God is.

And if you ask any Christian, it isn't a life you'll regret.

Just like telling the truth isn't always easier but it provides honest friendships and creates trust.

It isn't a get rich quick solution, or help you with all your problems, and take away all inconveniences.

It won't make you perfect, or better than anyone else.

There is no formula or method, just faith.

It's not about religion or religious duties.

And if Christianity isn't real, then nothing. Then we believed a lie, and we either continue on living as some believe, live in an afterlife as others believe, or return as new creations. But nevertheless, there are no consequences.

But Christianity offers a gift, a gift of salvation, and a life without God is not a life worth living.
