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 pleasure, excitement, generous giving and open sharing.

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

As we interrogate ourselves over and over about our commitment, our actions and even the words we used, 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 on Calvary as Jesus called to His Father for support.

During those times when both promises and hearts are broken, we need to reach out and seek the help of our God who has experienced what we are going through.

During our rough times it’s a lot easier if we don’t have to go it alone.

I’m Peter Mack and that’s faith.
