God is ready to heal your broken-heart but you need to give Him all the pieces. You cannot trust God halfway, you need to trust Him all the way. And every piece of our brokenhearted needs to be surrendered to God for total healing.
Psalms 34:18, 147:3
Healing is a process and it usually takes time. Psalms 147:3, paints a picture of God’s Healing hands completing the process of healing in our heart. So today if your heart is a million pieces, maybe nobody around you even knows what you are going through… I think the question is, will you choose to trust God with the broken pieces of your heart. Because it might not have been your choice that your heart is broken, but now that you are in a place where your life wasn’t intended to be, you now have a choice of what you will do from here onwards.
Choices to make with heart-break
When God was speaking to Israel people He actually gave them a choice, to choose life or death.. But He went ahead and gave them the answer to choose life because He is the best teacher.
a. Recognize or Rationalize.
Many people are suffering from heartbreak but when you encounter them and ask how they are, they will say am good but in realities they are hiding their feelings. Because they think, when avoiding problems, they will be able to get rid of that problem. Avoiding something doesn’t actually means it will stop that something to be there. The right thing to do is actually to face your problem and go through it. You see if you never healed from what hurts you, you will bleed on people who never cut you. Rationalize is defending something that hurts you. Yeah, I cut myself because I was playing with a knife… What is that… Instead of you handling it and accepting it, you are feeling that you deserve that hurt, cut or pain.
CHOOSE TO RECOGNIZE that you have pain.
b. Resolve or resign.
Resolve is a firm commitment to a chosen path, that you look at the path before your healing that God has put in from of you. That am going to choose to stick with it even if I don’t see things changing over a night. Complete healing is not a quick fix, it’s choosing to trust God no matter what as He thoroughly heals your heart.
CHOOSE TO RESOLVE.
c. Rebuild or React.
One of the greatest mistakes people make is that they get out of one relationship and their heart is broken and the immediate reaction is let me get into another relationship. That means you are reacting and not rebuilding. That’s means you will be going to drama to drama to drama, pain to pain to pain, trial to trial to trial. If you get out of relationship, restrict yourself, let yourself heals and take some time to rebuild yourself. Like going back to God’s word. Proverbs 4:23.
CHOOSE TO REBUILD.
d. Restore or Relapse.
You have a choice to entrust your life to the hands of God, that even when you don’t see Him binding your wounds, you trust Him He is doing what He promised. Or you can choose to trust yourself with the pieces of your brokenhearted, try to pull things together and fall back in the pit again and again, relapsing back to your previous circumstance over and over again.
CHOOSE TO RESTORE
Don’t let the person who didn’t love you stop you from meeting the person who will love you.
