Friday Inspiration: Heart Revival

“Suffering has been stronger than all other teaching, and has taught me to understand what your heart used to be. I have been bent and broken, but – I hope – into a better shape.”
Charles Dickens, Great Expectations

“When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.”
Kahlil Gibran

“Listen to God with a broken heart. He is not only the doctor who mends it, but also the father who wipes away the tears.”
Criss Jami

      1. I am sure it’s going to touch the heart of many of my friends here bro. There are incredible people here on wp and I believe they will find comfort in what you posted. HSHBLT

  1. Such beautiful quotes. It is true whatever happend on the outside is already the blessing we carry inside as the blessing that makesnour shining even brighter, showing up as soon as we discover it. Beautiful song to go with.

  2. Really a beautiful song, with wonderful words. Your post helps to make a wider reflection on the world of music and the lyrics proposed. Artists have a great responsibility, they speak to the hearts of people, they can target the audience in a direction or another. Not all artists write with the intention of giving love, but just to get rid of their own insecurity, fear and personal anger. Not all artists write to give comfort and joy to others, but only to provoke curiosity and interest. And if we add to this aspect the reigning vanity, we understand how difficult is for the world to change gear.
    Love, W.

    1. Artists do have the power to influence with their music. We can hope that more artists will bring a positive and encouraging message to this world . It is highly needed! Thank you, Walter!

  3. This was just wonderful! All difficulties that we go through shape our heart and make us a person God created us to be. There is indeed joy in suffering.
