In dealing with a broken heart realize that HE is aware, release your hurt to HIM then, rely on GOD’s resources to comfort you. “Blessed are those who mourn for they will be comforted.”
How can I be happy in the midst of trial and tragedy? Receive GOD’s comfort.
It’s amazing what some people try to be comforted by. Some people take pills. Some people get drunk. Some people try affairs. Some people watch TV all the time. Some people read novels, fantasize in novels. Some people sleep all the time, all of them trying to get rid of all the pain in their life.
GOD says, “Don’t do those things.” They are just quick fixes, they don’t last. What are the comforters that God uses?
One of them is GOD’s Word. Fill your mind with Scripture.
David said in Psalm 119.25, 52 (LB), “I am completely discouraged... Revive me by YOUr Word…YOUr Word has been my comfort.”
Read through the book of Psalms and highlight all the verses that comfort you. Then you will have them in those times of trouble to read what GOD says to you. Psalms was written to comfort us.
There are over 7000 promises in the Bible. Underline all the promises so you’ll know where they are. And claim them.
I know that there’s a lot of hidden hurt. Behind our pretty faces is a lot of pain.
You come to the Front Porch saying, “Does GOD have a Word for me?” The answer is, “Yes, HE does have a word for you. The word is your pain matters to HIM.” HE sees it, HE understands it, HE feels it. HE’ll help you in that frustration, that pain, that hurt. Look to GOD’s Word and become a student of the Bible.
Just a thought from the front porch…
