Psalm 34:19

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted.  Psalm 14:19

There is actually a condition known as broken-heart syndrome, a temporary condition triggered by the death or loss of a loved one.  The main symptom is sudden chest pain that mimics a heart attack.

It’s so true that grief takes its toll on our physical and emotional health.  Yet when we are attacked by heartache, our Great Physician is always available—even in the middle of the night, when the pain of sorrow is most acute. Have you lost someone or something special? Remember that God specializes in broken hearts.
