Pain and loss- check.
Felt broken- check.
Felt lost and alone- check.
These are common to all people but that doesn’t help too much when you’re the one going through it.
Heartache is an awful thing to deal with. It quite honestly can physically affect your heart and give you real feelings of pain.
The Bible has a good admonition against suffering alone. Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 “Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble… A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer.”
Life is not meant to be lived in isolation. God saw that Adam needed a helpmate and then proceeded to create Eve. Besides having people in our lives as precautionary to help us through tough times, we must be vulnerably open with those in our lives. It does us no good to have well meaning friends and loved ones if we can’t seek solace in our times of need.
Each of us goes through tough times when we need comfort and consideration from others. Do not go it alone. Start today! Build up your tribe of people who will be there for you through the good and the bad times. Begin to open up: be real, be honest, be vulnerable. Let people in –so they have the opportunity to walk you through hard times.
Until Next Time~
