Listen sis, I have faced my own share of heartbreak. Regardless of who was to blame, I’ve had to feel what it is like to pick up the pieces of a broken heart. But here’s the truth. Heartbreak hurts but the beautiful thing is that, with God’s help, you will not stay in that place forever. Here are a few things that I encourage you to do as you allow the Lord to mend your heart.
Take time to heal
Don’t skip over the healing process and just try to move on. It might be super uncomfortable and hard to go through at times but in order for your heart to be repaired, you have to sit and allow the Lord to do it. It is also important to remember that vulnerability is necessary for the healing process. You have to be honest with the Lord, surrender every emotion, and let down any walls that would block God from completely walking with you as you heal.
Guard your heart and mind
Be careful what you expose yourself to and speak against any toxic thoughts. When you are working through heartbreak, you have to guard your heart by not entertaining anything or anyone that would distract you from the process. You also have to guard your mind and not allow toxic thoughts to consume you. You have to speak the Word of God against any thought that does not line up with the Word.
Don’t stop enjoying life!
Sis, you still have a life beyond the heartbreak! Don’t allow depression, sadness, anxiety, etc. to consume you and stop you from living! That is what the enemy and your emotions want you to do but you have to know that your identity and purpose far exceed the heartbreak that you might be experiencing. The heartbreak is temporary but who you are and why you are here will never change.
Think about the lessons learned
I believe that there is a lesson that we can take away from almost every situation that we go through. There is something that we can take away as a lesson so that we do not find ourselves in cycles. As you are going through the healing, ask the Lord to show you what He wants you to learn from the situation and how to avoid repeating any mistakes.
The Lord is near to the heartbroken
And He saves those who are crushed in spirit (contrite in heart, truly sorry for their sin).
