10 Verses for a Broken Heart
Tuesday, December 23, 2014
About two years ago. I went through my first real heartbreak. It was one of the most awkward and heartbreaking moments of my life. I had only been in church for two years then, and this was the very first true test that I was placed in since I began my walk with God.
I was confused, and I went through a hard time trying to figure out what the Lord was trying to show me. I was left on my own, and it felt as if I had absolutely no one by my side. Most of friends weren't with me. My parents were far away, and it was just a really tough time for me.
Days passed, months passed and eventually I learned to depend solely on the Lord. I would meditate on His word daily, and I would speak with Him. I was angry at first because I didn't understand, but later on I realized that maybe all of this happened because God did not want me to depend on people but on Him.
At the time I would read a lot of verses that would give me strength and hope for the future. I would like to share with you 10 verses that helped me get over a really rough time in my life, and I hope that you are strengthened by theses verses as well.
If you are suffering in any way, remember the strength and power of God.

These are only a few. There are so many more verses in the Bible that can guide you on your path to healing.
What ever you may be struggling with at this moment, whatever battle you are fighting just remember that with time things get better. There are steps that one takes in the process of healing. I took them during this rough time of mine, and I eventually understood everything. In every difficult situation we face we are made stronger, and we are NEVER abandoned by God.
