Brokenness Is Real, You Only Need to Be Still
First off, I honor you for your courage to say yes to a relationship where you could possibly get hurt the most, but also where you could grow more. Your love story is unique and well-written. The kind of love that no matter how strong, will never be perfect. The kind of love that no matter how long, there is still no guarantee of forever. The kind of love wherein commitment comes first before judgment. The kind of love that is flawed yet real.
Some Treasured Truths
Today, let me be that friend who wants nothing but the best for you. Here are some treasured truths that I have kept in the tablet of my heart.
Invite God in any of your relationships. Make Him the center of it.
You see, we are all pretty much broken. Sometimes, we handle it well. Yet most of the time, we fumble and bungle. We turn to things that can fulfill those voids in our hearts. We turn to people whom we thought are able to fulfill the emptiness. This can be a serious trap for you. You may think that your love for others can satisfy that longing but it will never will. It may give you comfort and satisfaction for a little while, but will never bring healing. God is knocking at your door. He wants to come into your life. He wants to come into your relationship. Yet, He is the kind of God who doesn't push Himself t us. He waits. He never comes against our will. We have to give Him permission to come into the places we have so long shut off from everyone. Will you let Him heal you?
When you have badly hurt others, give God the access to your broken heart. Turn to Him first for forgiveness.
Ask Him to enter the shattered places. You know where they are. Ask Him there. Was it an issue from the past? Was it dosrespect and dishonesty? Inability to communicate? Allow God to shed light to those dark places. Give him the permission to heal both of your wounded hearts. You can't continue to love when you have unsettled heart issues.
Throw all the enemy's lies. Believe it or not, but your wounds left hidden messages in your heart. Lots of it. You're wothless. You're not man enough. You're a failure. You're a disappointment. You're too much to handle. You're unlovable. The long list of these lies can continue. On and on and on. And because they all brought so much pain, you felt all too deeply too. They pierced your hearts, and they seemed so true. In fact, you learned over time to just accept them and live with it. You embraced it.
Ignore Those Lies
My dear friend, ignore those false words. Those lies are not the words that God has said of you. You are His child, His beloved, His cherished one. Sadly, you will never be able to see each other the way God sees you, unless you throw all these lies away from your identity.
Love, you don't need to always have it together. Life is hard. We know that. Yet, we can be vulnerable. You don't have to suppress the pain and make people think that you are perfectly fine. You're not living to impress but to progress.
Grief, dear friend, is good. Grief helps to heal our hearts. Jesus himself was a "man of sorrows and acquainted with grief." (Isaiah 53:3)
Let the tears come. Be alone. Get inside the shower and let the tears freely come. It is the right way to treat your brokenness. Allow yourself to feel again. And you will feel many things.
Anger? That's okay. Anger's not a sin. (Ephesians 4:26)
Regret? Of course, you'll regret so many lost years and chances. Fear? Yes, that makes sense.
Grief says, "your wound mattered." It does. You mattered. You're thoughts which say, "This is not the way life was supposed to go." Jesus knows that. Beloved, the tears of a woman whose life has been hard and lonely and nothing close to her dreams, Jesus sees that. He wants you to know, "I am in control. Let the tears come."
God will not give you second chances; He will give you new beginnings. Which means your shattered hearts will be made new. It is amazing. It is available. It is possible.
The God who knows your every thought and intention and sees every failure and sin is eager to give you a clean record, with no history of cheating, with no history of past defeats. The blaming game will no longer exist.
Be reminded that you can always give yourself second, third, fourth chances but only in God will you be able to have new beginnings.
He will open your eyes to a love you never knew existed, a love you can only dream of. You will be able to forgive graciously. You will handle your heart differently. Not in second chances but in new beginnings.
GOD IS RE-WRITING YOUR LOVE STORY.
"He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. He who was seated on the throne said, "I am making everything new!" Then He said, "Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true."
