A Broken Heart

I once received a letter from a lady from Wisconsin whose daughter had been brutally murdered.  She had read one of my books and wrote to ask, “Do you know what heaven is like?  Has anyone ever come back from there to tell us about it?”

Her letter expresses one of the deepest longings of the human heart.  “Does heaven have anything to say to us in times of sorrow?”  Yes, yes, most definitely. The scriptures say, “And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, write, blessed (i.e. happy, fortunate) are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth:  yea, saith the spirit that they may rest from their labors; and their works do follow them.”  (Revelation 14:13)

There is hope in Christ for the burden of a broken heart.  Trust in him and he will help you when you have a hurt that won’t go away.
