To The Heartbroken: It Doesn’t End Like This.
Updated: Dec 7, 2020
I don’t know what your heartbreak is about, but I know it hurts.
My gosh, does it hurt.
It feels like you can’t breathe, or think. It’s consuming. It makes you wonder how anything will ever be ok.
And so you find yourself on the floor, feeling like getting up isn’t going to happen anytime soon.
If I was there, I’d lay down next to you. I’d tell you that this pain is so real, and it’s going to hurt for awhile.
But it’s you, and you have the Spirit of the healer living right inside of you, and so I know that this isn’t how it ends for you.
I’d tell you it’s okay to be devastated. This feeling won’t go away right now... But neither will God.
He pulls us out of deep waters.
He walks us through the valley.
He binds up our wounds.
I know it because I’ve been on the floor before, too.
I felt like it would never be okay.
But He did what He said He would do, and He lifted me up.
It wasn’t pretty. It wasn’t easy. It wasn’t quick.
But He did it and He will do it again.
The idea that life is over, or never going to be “good” again is such a lie.
He redeems. And He isn’t even close to being done with you.
Even though you may not be able to feel it right now, He is closer to you than the pain is.
So friend, if I was with you right now, I would say that even though we can’t make this go away, and even though we can’t see it yet..
Your story doesn’t end like this.
