How do you live with your one broken heart? 💔
We've all felt it...the pain, the suffering, the hardships of a broken world.
I felt it when I was struggling to find the meaning of my life amidst depression... ***
When everything earthly possession I owned was stolen from me... ***
When I was lying in a hospital bed sick and in pain... *** It would have been easy to despair, to give up hope, to feel alone...and many have asked me how I have stayed so positive through everything I've been through. 🌟“But there is this truth: Blessed are those who who cry, who are sad, who mourn, who feel the loss of what they love-because they will be held by the one who loves them. There is a strange and aching happiness only the hurting know-for they shall be held.”
I didn't despair, lose hope, or feel alone because I can cry out and be held by a God who understands, by a God who gave up His perfect life in heaven to live in this broken world and die a terrible death so that I have HOPE in a better future ✞ “The body of Christ doesn't offer you come cliches, but something to cling to-right here in your own scarred hands. His body doesn't offer some platitudes, but some place for your pain-right here in your own offered time...He is our wounded healer who uses nails to buy freedom and crosses to resurrect hope.” ✞ “How do we live with our one broken heart? Only the wounds of God can heal our wounds.” ❤️ And that is why we remember this Good Friday. ****
