it gets better, i promise

This world can and will break your heart. I know it has mine. You spiral down in this hole that you think you may never come up out of. You feel your world crashing down on you. You feel like there’s too much to do, so you do nothing.

I know this feeling and I was there not so long ago. We had made plans. I had my life mapped out. I knew where I was going. I loved it. I felt in control…and then I didn’t. I camped out on my couch for my entire Christmas break, and I regret all that time I wasted. I want to help you from making that same mistake I did. I want to help you get over your heartbreak more quickly.

First of all, take a minute and think about all that you have been given and be grateful. Receive the love and friendship that is begging to be given to you. Is anyone trying to help you? Are you pushing them away? Are you making excuses? Playing the victim?

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 says: Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 

Yes, sometimes bad things happen to good people. We get our feelings hurt. We suffer losses, but it is all a part of a bigger plan. Have you ever heard the saying “You can’t see the forest for the trees?” Well, this is kinda that. And I want you to know that I am not discounting your pain and hurting at all. I truly believe that you are feeling so much right now that it seems unbearable, but I want you to know that there is more. So much more coming.

I consider our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. = The pain that you’ve been feeling can’t compare to joy that’s coming. (loosely translated) {Romans 8:18}

Those plans that you had, they will be different now. Who knows? They may even be better. You will look back at this season and realize why it had to happen. You will want to express so much gratitude and praise for this hurt redirecting you to a better path.

Let that give you peace and healing on your journey. Please, reach out to someone if you are in this pit right now. I would love to chat with you if you feel like you have no friends to speak with.
