When two people first find they love each other in a deep and meaningful way, their hearts are filled with an ecstasy that overwhelms all other emotions.

As their love grows, they promise each other a lifetime of happiness, excitement, generous giving and open sharing.

Sometimes the joy of that relationship can fade if the promises are broken. The effervescence of yesterday’s overwhelming feelings of love can be replaced with today’s heartaches and distress.

As we interrogate ourselves over and over about our commitment, our actions and even our words, we can find ourselves at the point of despair where we even question our own ability to love.

The cry of the broken-hearted lover was heard when Jesus called to His heavenly Father for support in the Garden of Gethsemane after the Last Supper.

During those times when promises and hearts are broken, we need to reach out and seek the help of Jesus, who has experienced what we are going through, because during our rough times it is a lot easier if we don’t have to go it alone.

I’m Peter Mack and that’s faith.
