We live in a world in which broken dreams, shattered relationships, and unfulfilled expectations exist. Naaman’s story reminds us that in such a world we, too, can be repaired, mended, and healed. Just remember that a little humility goes a long way. Better to be obedient without understanding than to be disobedient and trust in our own wisdom. The arms of God’s love can comfort a soul back into wholeness! The balm of Christ’s forgiveness can heal broken hearts! The Spirit of justice, restoration, and restitution can reset the human condition! On those days when you feel wounded, scarred, broken, and falling apart, remember that your repairability index is high. Healing is what Jesus is all about, and with him, repairs are guaranteed. As the gospel song puts it: He’s the healer of broken hearts, he’ll mend your shattered dreams. He’ll pick up all the threads of your broken life and weave them together again. To your soul, He’ll bring peace and joy. A friend in need He’ll be. The healer of broken hearts is Jesus of Galilee.
