Your heartache is breaking you…

Your Heartache is Breaking You . . .

I don't know about you but music and art speaks to me in ways that no stack of theology books can touch (even though I regularly and easily get lost in the sublimity of the writings of the saints). Reaching an even deeper level are those artists and lyrics that are true in art and theology. In these works of art we can completely rest and be led into the heart of God through the marriage of truth and beauty. Audrey Assad, a marvelous Catholic singer, often leads my heart to the heart of God. This one is for those who's heartache is breaking you but who have hope because when we look to Christ, help is always on the way. Lift up your head…

If this music moves your heart too, please support Audrey by sharing this post on Facebook. She is a great gift to the Church.

  • Thanks to you I’ve been hopping from Audrey Assad video to another on YouTube 🙂 Her music is beautiful!
    First read her talking about Seeking Holiness before a Spouse on Register but only heard her songs now. And this songs fits well with that. Before my second conversion, I got heartbroken over a friend I had a crush on. I later realized that God was opening my heart for the graces He wanted to give me my first silent retreat a month later! Best heartbreak ever! 😀

    Just got this in my inbox at s time when I need it most.

    • I am delighted Aine. What do you hear the Holy Spirit saying to you through this song?

    I think the day-to-day anxiety of living is a kind of heartache. It may not seem like it has anything to do with losing love or being separated from a loved one, but from a Catholic point of view, it does.

  • Audrey Assad

    Thanks for posting this video. Glad to be a blessing, and thankful for the support!

    • Ah well – you thanking me is a bit humorous. May God increase your audience a thousand fold and may you continuously grow in His love and grace.
