Weekend Wisdom: Brokenhearted

Had a rough week? The walk with me through one of the local parks. We’ll take our time, walk slowly, and enjoy the view while meditating on a verse that comforts us.


The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.

Psalm 34:18




We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed;

2 Corinthians 4:8-9






fear not, for I am with you;
    be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
    I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Isaiah 41:10




For his anger is but for a moment,
    and his favor is for a lifetime.[a]
Weeping may tarry for the night,
    but joy comes with the morning.

Psalm 30:5
