A Hurt Heart

For a long time my heart felt like it had a knife in it that was twisting. 

Psalm 34:18 The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

When you value something or someone very highly and they are no more it can hurt you very deeply. 

One of the ways to remove a hurt is to remove what caused the hurt in the first place, this can take a long time.

 I believe one of the ways to help remove the hurt in your heart is to help you want nothing more than God. Its a bit hard to want someone you may have imagined doesn't want you, so I believe one of the main reasons your heart has been hurt is because you have imagined God is not Who He IS. This can be because you have had God misrepresented to you. This may  have led you to valuing something or someone in your heart more than you have valued God. One of the ways to help you is to help represent God to you. When you know there is nothing God wants more than you, it is my belief you will be a lot more able to want nothing more than Him. 

Isaiah 30:26 The moon will shine like the sun, and the sunlight will be seven times brighter, like the light of seven full days, when the Lord binds up the bruises of his people and heals the wounds he inflicted.

Matthew 22:37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.
