My Heart Was Broken

Last week someone was heavy on my heart so I emailed them to let them know I was praying for them.  What I got back was very unexpected.  They shared with me the divorce they are going through.  My heart was broken.

Divorce never effected me until I experienced it personally and now hearing about one just makes me ache.  I know we live in a fallen world and there are many pains that people should not have to experience like cancer, divorce, and death but we do.

I also realize that there is no Bible verse or platitude I can say that will make any difference.  If they are anything like I was, I might be punched for sharing something like that.  So I just told them I would pray.  Sometimes that is all we can do.
