Hello and Happy Day! This is Dr. MaryAnn Diorio, your Virtual Life Coach, welcoming you to another episode of Winning with the Word. Today is Monday, February 10, 2020. Today’s Podcast is Episode #6 in Series 2020 and is titled “When the Heartache Is Unbearable".

Years ago, I heard a speaker say something I have never forgotten. She said, "Treat everyone as though he has a broken heart, because he does." Those poignant words were engraved upon my heart and totally transformed the way I looked at people. Those words, I believe, were what led me to become a Life Coach. And my experience as a coach during the past several years has proven over and over again the truth of the speaker's words.

In one way or another, everyone has a broken heart. We can't live long on this earth without experiencing something that will break our heart. A toddler's heart might be broken because his mommy has to leave him for a few hours. Or, far more serious, a toddler's heart might be broken by a mommy who has physically abused him or abandoned him. A teenager's heart might be broken by unrequited love. A married man's heart might be broken by a wife who leaves him. A middle-aged woman's heart might be broken by the death of her mother or her father. Broken hearts are all too common and all too painful.

Heartache comes in many shapes and sizes, and no one is immune from it. Most of the time, we learn to cope with heartache. But sometimes, the heartache becomes unbearable. So, what do we do in such cases?

As always, the Bible, God's manual for man, provides the answers. Let's take a look at what this greatest book of all time has to say about heartache:

God knows our heartache. Not only does He know it; He wants to heal it. Acts 15: 8 tells us that "God knows people’s hearts." God knows your heart, too, and He knows the depth of your suffering. He wants to take away the pain and replace it with His joy and peace.

God sent Jesus to comfort the broken-hearted. In Isaiah 61: 1, a verse quoted again by Jesus in Luke 4: 18, we read: "The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is upon me, for the LORD has . . . sent me to comfort the broken-hearted." Jesus came to earth to comfort the broken-hearted. He wants to comfort you, too. Why? Because He loves you!

God heals our broken hearts, thereby removing the heartache. Psalm 147: 3 NLT says, "He heals the brokenhearted and bandages their wounds." Picture our loving Jesus, bandaging your broken heart as He restores it to wholeness. 

God is near to you at all times, especially during times of deep heartache. The Bible tells us in Psalm 34: 18-19 that "The LORD is close to the brokenhearted; He rescues those whose spirits are crushed. The righteous person faces many troubles, but the LORD comes to the rescue each time."  If you are broken-hearted, the LORD is close to You and wants to rescue you.  What an amazing promise!  Surely knowing this gives us hope to go on when we feel like giving up.

In order for Jesus to heal our broken heart, we must ask Him to. Jesus is a gentleman,
