The pain, it’s almost unbearable; the pain in your heart. You long for comfort. We all do. The breaking heart hurts more than all physical pain. For example, the pain of losing a loved one, having an abusive caretaker, or saying goodbye without knowing what the future will hold. Maybe you never had a father to love you, maybe you had one but he didn’t love you. Or perhaps you were the one kid in class who everyone teamed up on to make fun of, “Your glasses look funny, your nose is too pointy, you’re too skinny, your hair stinks, your clothes look like what your Grandma would wear…” The list goes on, and it’s all pain in your heart. It’s taking up too much room, you might hate yourself now, even though you are beautiful. We’ve all experienced heart-break. Heart-break doesn’t mean a boyfriend or girlfriend breaks up with you; that’s only one form of heartbreak. And I believe many of us, if not all, have had this pain. We all desire comfort, healing. The world tells us “Survive. There’s doctors to help you if you break a leg or catch the flu, but with the matters of the heart, no one can heal that.” I am here to tell you something different. Let me introduce you to the Doctor of Love.
He’s strong and gentle, ever ready to lend a shoulder to cry on and an ear to hear. He’s full of grace and hope and longs to love you. His own heart aches when He sees the pain you have. He desires to bring healing, and He can. He can heal you, but only when you want Him. He will never force anything upon you, for you have free will, but He will offer advice and prescribe medicine for healing. He doesn’t care if you are the geek in school, wear braces, or have funny glasses. He doesn’t care how short or tall, fat or skinny you are. He doesn’t look at your outward appearance, for He specializes in matters of the heart and looks only at your heart. When it aches, He longs to sew into it stiches of love and joy.
He loves you. Oh, how He loves you. He loves you more than any man on this earth could ever love you because He is not from this earth. He is so much more than a man, yet He is a man. He is the Doctor of Love. Some call Him Jesus.
His love for you is so great that He was persecuted and wore a crown of thorns and was nailed to a cross, all for you. ALL for you. He saw that your heart was broken, He saw that you could not fix it; that no man could fix it, so He said “I will fix it.” As his blood was shed, your blood was cleansed and life was poured into it.
So come, come to the Doctor of Love. Come and be healed. Come and receive joy.
“Come to Me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” –Jesus Christ
