I wonder when Al Green was singing this song, was he thinking what I’m writing now?
And how can you mend a broken heart?
How can you stop the rain from falling down?
How can you stop the sun from shining?
What makes the world go round?
How can you mend this broken man?
How can a loser ever win?
Please help me mend my broken heart
And let me live again...
How can you mend a broken heart?
Fun fact! You can’t. 😐
I love a good meme. 😂😂😂 But for real though. You ought to be worried that God knows your heart, fam. It’s some stuff in there that you don’t even know in there. And it’s from what’s in your heart that God repays you. Don’t believe me? No problem! You ain’t gotta take KISHA word for it—listen to what Adonai said.
““The human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked. Who really knows how bad it is? But I, the Lord, search all hearts and examine secret motives. I give all people their due rewards, according to what their actions deserve.””Jeremiah 17:9-10 NLT
And if that’s not current enough for you, why don’t you read what Jesus the Christ said on the matter when He stepped foot into His calling as the Messiah:
“But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:”Matthew 15:18-19 KJV
And so we pray.
Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a right and steadfast spirit within me. Psalm 51:10 KJV
God has promised to uproot all things not planted by His hand in us, to take out the stony heart and replace it with a heart of flesh—what that means is that God replaces our hard hearted willfulness with tenderness, submission, and right thinking. The MIND OF CHRIST.
And from there, we are admonished to guard our hearts from the ways of this world, the thoughts it thinks, the things it does—because whatever flows out of our heart makes us, reveals who we are and to whom we belong.
Get into it.
When the issue of your heart flows out of the Spirit of Christ, then you are flowing from the River spoken of in Psalm 46:4 and Revelation 3:12. This river flows from the throne of God and the Lamb, and it’s streams make the city of God glad. God is in the midst of that city, and she(the city) SHALL NOT FAIL. Cuz God helps her and that right soon.
You are a city that sits on a hill, in Whom God causes the rivers of living waters to flow.
One time for the one time: Get. In. To. It.
Allow the Father to give you a new heart so that you will never thirst again. So that you’ll never see yourself as a loser trying to win. So that you don’t worry about the rain because you know the one who set the seasons. So that you don’t wonder what makes the world go round because you know the ONE Who created it. So that you can LIVE. And that more abundantly.
