Praying for a Healed Heart

A heart is a wonderful thing
it can be broken, mended
kept, or given away


Hearts are so strong
and yet so fragile
and every one is different


Some are adorned with ribbons and string
flowers, and jewels
and pictures of puppies



But others are full of holes
covered with patches
and duct tape
and glue to hold it all together


  Most hearts are a combination of both
they are beautiful … but broken
So we use the ribbons to keep the pieces together
while the glue holds everything in place to heal


because every time you have to fix a heart
it gets stronger, more durable
So whether your heart is only cracked
or broken into a thousand pieces

 

Whether it is hurting
or has been healed
You have to remember
this is all a part of who you are
and who you are meant to be
 
So that you may help others
Who feel the same as you do
Whether it be in joy or pain
happiness or hurt
and everything in between
