Moving On With God: How To Deal With Breakup
“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” – Psalm 147:3
Dealing with a breakup is a very painful and stressful experience for everyone — you will undergo with sleepless nights, several emotions and will think that you cannot move forward with life. However, coping up with this throbbing pain will be easier if you surrender your feelings to God and let Him mend your broken heart.
Here are some ways to cope with a breakup with God’s help and Grace.
Rely on God
“Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken.” – Psalm 55:22
This Bible passage tells us to cast our burdens to God and he will comfort us. God is our Father, best friend, our great refuge and comforter — talk to Him, cry out to Him and call His name. Rely on His Love and His Word by reading the Bible and some devotional book. Coping up with a heartbreak is not easy, but with God nothing is impossible.
Keep Yourself Busy
“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” – 1 Corinthians 10:31
Keeping yourself busy while coping up with a breakup is a great advantage. Spend more time with your family and friends, learn new things together or enjoy your time alone. Travel, start a Write the Word journal, try a new hobby, do some exercise, volunteer in your community or church or declutter your space. Put away some things in your space that will remind you of that person and replace it with the things that will inspire you, such as colorful Bible verse themed plaque, wall frame arts and other knick knacks.
Trust God’s Plan
“Jesus replied, “You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.” – John 13:7
Trusting God is very important, even if we don’t know His plan for us. Sometimes, He allows things to happen for a reason — to teach us, guide us and lead us to a better way. “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” – Romans 8:28
Remember, it is okay to cry and to feel the pain, but don’t dwell on it. Thus, moving on requires more patience, forgiveness, acceptance and hope from the Lord. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11
