Broken hearts and soul wounds are real. We cannot ignore them or minimize them if we want to live the abundant life that God has offered each of us. So, grappling with the truth of our hurt and doing the hard work to be well in our souls and to enjoy healthy, mutually satisfying relationships is required. However, when we place the onus on another person to heal our wounds we are setting ourselves up for repeated and cyclical disappointment. Not to mention the unrealistic demands and impossible weight we put on another person. The truth is, it is not the responsibility of another human being to heal the wounds of our soul. Period. The healing of our soul wounds and broken hearts is divine. God alone is The Healer. Further, as our Creator, he knows each of us intimately. He knows just what we need so that we may experience health, wellness, and wholeness on a soul level.
If this is resonating with you, may I encourage you to bring the wounds of your soul to the Father. Give him the broken pieces of your heart. He has good things for you. He wants you to live a life of joy, peace, and satisfaction. He promises to heal the broken in heart and bandage every wound of the soul. Trust in the truth of his word.
