Where Do Broken Hearts Go?

In the music industry there has been so many songs and lyrics in relation to broken hearts, “Where do broken hearts go?” as well as, the newest hit, “Sleeping with a broken heart”. Both men and women wake up and realize one day that their heart has been trampled on by someone that they loved.

Some have walked through the process of healing and some have yet to experience a true healing of their emotions. The circle of trust once again must be re-established so that one does not make an assumption that all individuals are the same.
However, in our time of brokenness there is so much we could learn. Remember, we too play a part of this broken piece of the puzzle. There could be a number of things that led to this point of brokenness in our lives. Unkindness in our words, how we judge the other person or could it be that we have issues ourselves? Believe it or not, we could be just as wrong and could play the part in breaking a heart too.

But, what do we do when we find ourselves here? Where do we go with our emotions? Well, just telling it to a close friend can be helpful for the moment. However, when it comes to our damaged emotions a quick fix is simply not enough. Seeking professional counseling would help to get a corrective perception of your dilemma that would result in a long lasting effect on your future relationships.

Also, when it is all said and done no one knows us like the one who created us. When a kitchen appliance is broken you take it back to the manufacturer. You take it back to the one who made the product. When we are experiencing a broken area of our lives, going back to the one who created us, our Heavenly Father not only mends the broken place temporarily but puts in us the ability to heal completely so that when the vulnerability comes around again, we have the right parts to withstand.

Oh my friend, it is not healthy to think that you can shield your heart forever. Unless you plan on living in a cave or simply leaving this world you will get hurt again. But where do we go when the hurt is insurmountable and too hard to handle? Can I suggest to you my friend that you make the choice to go to the right source? This will make all the difference in the world for your continual existence on this earth.

Come on take a risk again, life is worth it!


  1. when I read this post the scripture that comes to mind is Ephesians 6:12.

  2. praingsister...yes, the scripture does encompass the broken heart of a man or a woman. Thank you!

  3. Amen to this message! At 44 I have had a few broken hearts in my time from friendships etc. but sadly we also have caused broken hearts in others I'm sure even unintentionally.

    I agree with you Lady J that we must return to the source -- Jesus is my greatest comfort especially when my heart is broken. He's the friend that sticks closer than any brother and I'm so thankful.

    What I have found is that my response in the midst of the brokenness if you will; determines what happens for me -- healing and the ability to move through the pain and still love on people in spite of the hurt.

    Thank you for sharing this with us. Blessings!

  4. Wow Lady J! This speaks directly to me. As I get a little older, I'm learning to find the balance between not being so guarded that I can't open my heart for someone who can love me the way God intends and being so open that I let the wrong person in. But I heard Bishop (or someone else say...sorry I can't really remember), "I would rather love and have lost, than to have never loved at all."

    Thank you for sharing your insight on this!

  5. Thank you so much for this. I have been hurt and healing and I know with God it shall be done!!!!
    Thanks again for this word.

  6. Thank you for this word to encourage, I exprienced some stange relationships, some of them had me hurt and wondering for a long time. Iam now opening up to trust and love people again without fear of rejection.
