How can I recover from heartbreak?
We all have been there heartbreak hotel, no one will get out of this life without being a guest at this hotel. The dictionary defines heartbreak as crushing grief, anguish, or distress. The term usually describes someone who has suffered a failed relationship or loss of a loved one. But a broken heart may be brought on by a myriad of causes such as disappointment in a child`s lifestyle, loss of possession, loss of job, etc. Whatever the cause, the pain of a broken heart can be enormous.
The world would assert that hope lies in psychoanalysis and medication. The most common cure is time. The world`s focus is on feelings, but God looks at the heart. While the non-Christian may sense a waning in intensity of heartbreak, only a Christian can experience complete recovery because only the Christian has access to the power of God who alone heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds ( Psalm 147:3)
The events in Job`s life may be the earliest biblical record of heartbreak. In one day Job lost his Children, almost all worldly possessions, his health, and his means of livelihood. Job grieved. Yet, he worshipped God and remained faithful. Job learned what all believers can learn through heartbreak, God is faithful and good and trustworthy. God never failed one of his people when they cried out to Him, and He will not fail the heartbroken Christian who cries out to Him toady. He may not always answer exactly in the way we would like, but He answers according to His perfect will and timing and while we are waiting for the answer, His grace is sufficient. ( 2 Corinthians 12:9) Jesus said ‘ I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble, heartbreak, sorrows. But take heart, I have overcome the world. ( John 16:33) Notice He said in Me, not in man, not in things , not in money. David said ‘ Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all. ( Psalm 34:19) God yearn to help us, but He will not violate our freedom. He will stand silently in the background of our mind, waiting for us to remember that He is with us. We do not live in Hotels all our lives, God will check us out of the heartbreak hotel. weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning. It`s time to check out, God has paid the bill in full. John 3:16 ‘ For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that Whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 14:1 ‘ Let not your heart be troubled : ye believe in God , believe also in me. Do not let trouble , trouble you, why not? verse 2 says ‘ In my Father`s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. no more heartbreak hotel.
