When you are heartbroken it may seem as if there is no hope and life may seem to have no meaning or purpose but there is a way to overcome these overwhelming feelings of loss. The Lord is the way to overcome these feelings.
Isaiah 61:1 The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; Isaiah 61:2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; Isaiah 61:3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified. The Lord can heal your broken heart and bind up your wounds:
Psalm 147:3 He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
Psalm 147:4 He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.
Psalm 147:5 Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.
The Lord sees and hears the cry of the righteous (morally correct, virtuous):
Psalm 34:14 Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.
Psalm 34:15 The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.
Sadness can harm your health so it is important not to allow the pain from a damaged relationship or loss of someone you love, no matter whether family, friend or mate to destroy you.
Proverbs 17:22 A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.
Dealing with heartache is hard enough but dealing with it alone can become overwhelming. Feeling the comfort of the Lord through prayer and worship can renew your strength and help you to overcome the pain you feel inside from the loss of another. If you are mourning a loss you must focus on the Lord and His love for you and He will comfort you.
Blessed [are] they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. Matt. 5:4
Don't go it alone. Take control of sad feelings by praying and worshiping the Lord, talk with the Elder of your church, your Preacher or with other believers. Keep in mind that when you lose someone from your life whether from a breakup it may be for the best later on. If you lose someone to death, keep in mind they are only sleeping and will rise again when Christ returns. All too often when we mourn it is not actually the other person we are mourning for but rather, it is the loss we feel of living without them and the pain you feel today will fade with time. If it is a broken relationship pray about it and if it is God's will for the relationship to be repaired or not. Ask the Lord to help you overcome your feelings of loss and accept the fact that it may not be the relationship God had planned for you. When you lose someone or someone dies that you are close too, there are many stages of grief which you will grow through before you reach the stage of acceptance, such as, shock, denial, pain, guilt, anger, bargaining, depression, an upward turn of emotions, working through your feelings and finally you will come to the point of acceptance and can see hope for the future. You can get through these stages with the Lord's help. Cast your cares upon the Lord, He can handle the load when you feel that you cannot. The Lord will have compassion on you, He is merciful and will give you strength, He will hold you up with His right hand and cover you with His wings. All you have to do is ask for His help.
Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. I Peter 5:7
Isaiah 41:10 - Fear thou not; for I [am] with thee: be not dismayed; for I [am] thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth [shall be thy] shield and buckler. Psa. 91:4
Hebrews 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
