Everyone goes through a broken heart or some kind of loss in their life and God helps us. A broken heart can feel like the end of the world.
If we are scared of letting your emotions out the best way to overcome grief is to let God help us.
God Draws You Close to Himself
Psalm 34:18 says, “The LORD is close to the brokenhearted, and he saves those whose spirits have been crushed” (NCV). When you grieve, you often feel like God is a million miles away. But what you feel and what’s real are not always the same thing. God’s not a million miles away. In fact, he’s never been any closer.
The Bible says, “Jesus was a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief” (Isaiah 53:3 NLT, second edition). When you come to Jesus with your grief, he knows what you’re talking about, and he understands your pain. God is a suffering God, and he is a sympathetic God.
God Gives You A Church Family
Healing comes in the church. It comes in community. We’re better together!
“In Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others …. Be devoted to each other like a loving family …. Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn” Romans 12:5, 10, 15.
Therefore God uses grief and even pain to help us become more like Christ also he does it in three ways.
God uses pain to get your attention Proverbs 20:30. Second, he brings good out of bad (Romans 8:28). Third, he prepares you for eternity (2 Corinthians 4:17-18).
There are many people who grieve without hope. Your life on this earth is short, but if you believe in Jesus Christ and trust him for your salvation, then you have the hope of spending eternity in Heaven with God, and that hope will sustain you through your time of loss. The Bible says in 1 Thessalonians 4:13, “We don’t want you to be ignorant about those who have died. We don’t want you to grieve like other people who have no hope” (GW).
This is called redemptive pain; it is the highest and best use of the pain you go through. God does not want you to waste a hurt. “God comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us” 2 Corinthians 1:4 .
