For years I suffered not knowing that I didn’t have to feel so bad. Many therapists had ideas about what would fix my broken heart but they were like bandaids on cancer. I have always been a religious person but believing in God and knowing God are completely different things.
When I started looking at Jesus Christ as a real person and pursued a relationship with him, I began to understand that he is the only one who could heal my broken heart. It’s his job as our Savior to teach us how to let the pain go, but the only way he can teach us is if we are close enough to feel his love and let him tutor us everyday. CS Lewis taught us this when he said, “Relying on God has to begin all over again every day as if nothing had yet been done.” It’s generally not an instant healing, it develops along with our genuine friendship with him.
He wins us over with his compassion and wisdom. He speaks to us with the language of the spirit and we learn that language as we converse with him. It takes faith and time and I know how hard that is for most people, but the opportunity to hear God and be healed by him is worth any price we are asked to pay. Peace is the ultimate prize.
