So you’ve recently gone through a breakup and you feel like your entire world has just shred to pieces. Your boyfriend or girlfriend was everything! You two would spend countless hours texting each other, had cute date nights, fallen asleep on the phone every night and woke up to cute “good morning” and “I love you” text messages. All of it just went down the drain right before your eyes and now you are heart broken.
Guess what? It is ok and is not the end of the world. During this season of heartbreak, cling to God. Love on him as he loves on you. Open your heart, cry out, and thank him for closing that door. God opens doors that no man can shut. If he can open these doors, don’t you think he will close them too? Your rejection is God’s protection! Romans 8:28 says “And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.”
Have you ever noticed how your parents were super overprotective of you as a child? Well imagine how God feels about you. He’s crazy about you! More than likely, before the relationship and during God showed you those warning signs but you ignored them. Instead, you continued to be in an unequally yoked relationship thinking that you could change that person. Or you just looked at their physical appearance and not what was on the inside of them. Well God is protecting you from that relationship that was never meant to be. If it was in God’s plan for you to marry them then that relationship wouldn’t have ended. Just imagine how amazing your husband or wife will be!
The key in getting over a heart break is TIME. Take this time to heal and just focus on God and his plan over your life. Enjoy your single season and allow the Lord to get you ready for your Ruth or Boaz. I’d rather be happy and single instead of being in a miserable relationship. Don’t go out and try to get a rebound or convince your friends to go out, get drunk, and have one night stands. Instead, use this TIME to build yourself and focus on the person who matters the most, God.
I was in a 6 year relationship and 6 month engagement, I knew in my head that I was going to leave him months before I actually did. The DAY BEFORE I broke up with him, I had somebody in my corner. I wasted my time and his as I did not take the appropriate time to heal and lean on God. Instead, I had “idols”, I would use them to fill this void that only God can truly fill. Do you think my rebound and I worked out? Absolutely not!
After I took a step back and realized what I was doing, I cut EVERYBODY off. I drew nearer to the Lord and He healed me way more than I thought I needed. He made me a better friend, daughter of Christ, mother, and future wife. I now value my single season, I know that the Lord is preparing my husband for me and me for my husband.
“Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord.” – Psalms 27:14
This scripture is talking about waiting patiently on the Lord. As we wait, time passes on “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” –Isaiah 40:31
As TIME passes by and we’re WAITING on the Lord to renew our strength, cling to him because ultimately with TIME, the Lord heals ALL wounds.
