I’m sure there has been a time in your life and mine, where we’ve experienced a broken heart. It may have been a break-up, the passing of a loved one, or a beloved pet. All these thing bring about a feeling of brokenness deep in our soul, so deep it feels like our heart is literally broken into a million pieces.
I’m not one for writing about my personal business, especially when it comes to my relationships, but I will be discreet. I have experienced two major break-ups that were very hard on me, my emotions were shattered, like the glass you see above. In the first one, I had been with this man for 10+ years, I loved him so much, but things didn’t work out.
We parted, that hurt none the less, but I never cried. I started dating another man, we dated for a little over two years, he was so caring, loving, strong, just what I needed in my life, when he left me I was devastated!! I didn’t understand why, he told me he loved me, and that I was his soul mate, I felt like I had known him forever!! The pain was awful.
Those were just two examples of broken hearts in my life, but the one that I thought would kill me was when my Mama died. I won’t go into details, but it was the most gut wrenching thing I have ever felt. I have never felt so much sorrow, guilt and pain. I wouldn’t wish that kind of pain on anyone, not even an enemy.
I know there may be some of you reading this right now that haven’t experienced it yet, but keep living, you will. A broken heart chips away at your very soul. It makes you wonder if you’ll ever be happy again, will you ever smile again, or will you ever love again. Only time will tell.
My story is not unique, there are many people that have gone through this pain, heartache, and loss. It feels as though we are living in a vacuum, no one feels our pain, no one cares, no one sees us, we’re all alone. Trust me, you’re not alone in this struggle to regain yourself, your life, love and hope.
There’s a way to come out of the darkness of depression, loneliness, fear, and sorrow.
Give yourself and your wounded heart over to the one who can heal it, God. He can hold your broken heart in His hands and protect it, keep it from further hurt or damage. He will lovingly hold you and let you know you are loved, cherished and wanted. This is what I had to do. I had to trust Him to take my broken heart, my wounded soul and heal it.
All the words you see in the hands in the above picture, He is all of these and so much more!! It took some time, but slowly He’s mending my broken heart. I still have sadness sometimes, but it doesn’t last for long, because I know He’s there to hold me and let me know everything is going to be okay.
Will you allow Him to mend your broken heart?
Leave me a comment, I would love to hear from you. Thanks.
