In 1995, the late actor, Christopher Reeve was paralyzed in a horseback riding accident. Before the accident, he played the part of a paraplegic. In his role, he often visited a rehabilitation centre and recalled thinking, “Thank God that’s not me.” But then tragically Reeve was injured and experienced first hand what he feared. Job, in the Bible, suddenly lost his health, his wealth and family. He said, “What I feared has come upon me.” But later, with the Lord’s help, he was able to say, “Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him,” and continued serving the Lord. How good to know that though many of us do experience physical, mental and financial setbacks, we can turn to the Lord Jesus, who was “touched with the feeling of our infirmities.” and described as “a Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.” If you have a broken heart today, I urge you to look to the One who is the Healer of broken hearts.
