A Love So Loud- Heartbreak.

     Ya know, I've mentioned the word heartbreak in a few of my posts since i've started this blog. But I feel like heartbreak is such a real part of our lives that it might just deserve it's own post..especially lately. It seems like everyone close to me is breaking up, or struggling, or barely getting by with being alright. And I think that a lot of us can't get past that achey, lost, hopeless, feeling- the one that causes us to wonder if everything will be okay again
     I've realized, being the sister of three other siblings, that words don't always help when it comes to fixing a problem. Sometimes, words don't do anything but open up the wounds more and more. Sometimes, people don't want to talk about it. Because sometimes, it hurts too much. And like i said earlier, it seems to be more prevalent right now than it usually is. With that being said, if you want to stop reading this because you don't want to think about the pain that a heartbreak has caused you, I honestly don't blame you..because I'm about to get to the point of this post, and if you keep reading- it's important that you take it in.
     I think the reason that so many of us get so heart broken is because we are so caught up in what could have been in our relationships. We think about the future before it gets here, we think about the lives we will spend together forever before we focus on the life we are spending together right now. I know this because i've been guilty of it a few times. And then we dwell on that. We dwell on how bad it is hurting right now and how we don't think we will ever move on. But we will. And that hopeless feeling in the pit of your stomach, that ache in your heart- that is there to remind you that you're a human, that not everything is going to be sunshine and butterflies, but it's not supposed to be. Bad things happen so that we learn to appreciate things when they're good. Life hurts sometimes, but every once in a while we catch a glimpse of something that reminds us that everything is okay- because it is. In Genesis, after God flooded the world, He kept a promise with us that it wouldn't happen again by sending us a rainbow..wait for your rainbow, because it is's just coming on God's time.
     Ya see, one of the cool things about believing in God, and having faith like some of you reading do- is that you know deep down that no matter how bad things may seem or how bad things may get- they always get better. Because the God we worship is a God of love and compassion. A God that wouldn't give you anything that you couldn't handle. A God that is full of tests and challenges, a God that seeks to make our hearts strong through Him
     So for the one who is struggling today, or the one who is constantly battling with being okay, "let go and let God." Wait for your rainbow because it is coming, even in the midst of your storm. And I promise you that because God woke you up this morning, He isn't disappointed with you yet. And as always- you're here for a purpose, so don't let anything stop you from fulfilling it. Believe today that things will get better, and start seeing the good unfold around you in this beautiful world.

He heals the brokenhearted, and binds up their wounds. -Psalm 147:3

  1. You are right on target with this blog Keller!

    If we rely on him, everything will work out for the very best way possible in our lives!

    I think in heartbreak and hard times in general we need to really ask God for the strength because it's just way too much to bear on your own.

    "I know I'm not strong enough to be everything that I'm supposed to be so I give up, I'm not strong enough"

    God tells us Isaiah 41:10 to not fear because he is with us and he is our God. That he will give us strength and help us and hold us in his right hand!

    Thank you so much for the post, and keep on keepin on for Jesus! I know this is having such an impact on lots and lots of people including myself!
