Broken Hearted

Psalm 51:17

My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise.
My spirit breaks daily.  I often do not want to show that side to others or to my God.  I see in this Psalm above though, that God will not despise a broken heart.  He loves us no matter what.  We will break.  We fall.  Our failings and sin are countless.  His Son came to save. 
Easter weekend is upon us.  I will relive this story at church, in the Bible, and in my heart.  Jesus was broken for us.  God’s heart broke for us.  His heart still breaks for us.  When I feel like I mess up or when others around me mess up.  Help me to have a heart of forgiveness…a heart of love.  Help me to gentle, kind, peaceful, and patient.  For it is when we are broken that we rise up to be healed.
