There is so much heartbreak in the world. The messages I have received just this week are overwhelming.
Lost loved ones.
Loss of a love.
Loss of someone we thought was our friend.
Loss of a job.
Loss of hope.
When we suffer from loss, there is spiritual pain that wiggles its way into the core of our beliefs. It is hard to find ways to heal when we experience that deep seeded pain.
God is the only place to find the healing we desire and need in our spirits. Remember these things as we experience heartbreak and are looking for ways to heal. A place of hope.
- Remember you are not alone. “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand,” Isaiah 41:10. There is no need for fear. We have the almighty God to strengthen us and hold us up when we cannot. He’s got our back!
- Draw close to Jesus in prayer. “Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,” declares the Lord,” Jeremiah 29:12-14a. Pray! Pray harder! Pour out your heartbreak to him, and He will draw you close. He listens. He understands. Talk to Him.
- Nurture a grateful heart. “Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever,” 1Chronicles 16:34. Thank God for the little things. Nothing to be thankful for? Are you breathing? Are you a child of God? Does God love you? That’s a great place to start.
- Choose Joy. “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit,” Romans 15:13. We have to make a choice. Do we choose misery or do we choose joy? Joy comes from the Lord. Choose to receive it. He fills you with peace. Choose to receive it. Allow your spirit to overflow with hope!
Allow yourself to feel the pain. Healing cannot occur if you are only pushing the pain down, hiding it. Then cling to the facts above that you need to remember.
How do you heal through heartbreaks? How does your faith guide you back to a place of healing?
Praying for healing through the heartbreak.
