What Should We Do When Our Heart Hurts?

Whether it is the death of a loved one, having a loved one sin against us, or another trial, what is the proper protocol when our heart hurts?

Do you ever feel like you are standing in a dense fog and are only able to see a few feet in front of your face? You know in which direction is home yet you constantly stumble over obstacles on the footpath? I feel this is where I go sometimes when my heart hurts. I know what scripture says yet I am quick to listen to others who may or may not be of the word. Those of this world confuse me and leave me walking in circles in the thick mist. I look to those of the word to shout to me and shine a light to guide me safely.

“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.” (Psalm 119:105.)

“All scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be adequately quipped for every good work.” (II Timothy 3:16-17.)

But is being in the word enough? I personally do not believe so. I feel when our heart aches we should be having on going conversations with our Father to help us through the tough stuff. He should be the first one to whom we turn. Actively seek Him and do not give up or give in to any feelings of defeat. Our Father is faithful to us and never, ever gives us anything we cannot handle! Not only is He there to listen but He has also given us His word, His response to all of our questions and sorrow.

“The word of God is living and active and sharper than any two edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12).

“No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.” (1 Corinthians 10:13.)

After reading this I run my situation through my mind and search for the “way of escape”. I cannot see it now but am faithful it will come to my attention eventually for not only do we have our Father and His word, we are also given a new heart that can see “that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose” and not to harm us. (Romans 8:28-30.)

“Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things freely given to us by God, which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words.” (I Corinthians 2: 12-13.)
