God’s Broken Heart

God never stops loving you. Which means God often experiences deep heartache – as hard as that may be to comprehend since God is the creator of all that is. The reason is the very nature of love itself. Since love embodies great vulnerability, passion and self-giving, there is always the potential for great pain. They simply go together. This means God hurts deeply when you turn away, harm others or fail to embrace God’s dreams for you. The point is not to try to fix God’s broken heart, because you can’t. It is simply to do something far more powerful than you can ever begin to imagine. Reach out to God, share yourself completely with God, and love God more and more and more. And then, do one more thing. Make these haunting lyrics the song of your heart, “… break my heart for what breaks Yours”.
