I have experienced heartbreak over and over and each time I told myself I wouldn’t allow myself to experience it, then all of a sudden it happens again. That’s the problem with heartbreak, it can happen at any particular time in every areas of our lives.

It has happened to me a couple of times. I remember when I was only seventeen, something unexpected happened to me. I was not ready for the death of my Dad. Before the demise, two years ago, I felt the pain of seeing my sister suffering from diabetes at a very young age. All these inevitable experiences contributed to my suffering. Even in my social relationship, the guy I dated for five years left my heart into pieces; what then followed was depression brought by a stressful state of mind.

At times I wonder if there is a way of being protected from heartbreak especially when you are in a ministry and good leadership is expected from you. I know some of us have experienced hurt and pain and you have asked yourself these same questions.

During the recovery of my dad’s passing I was really blown away with the love and support I received from my church and our family friends. Psalms 68:5 tells us that God is the father to the fatherless and that verse has given me comfort till this day. My sister still has diabetes and there is a lot of improvement. I believe that one day she will be healed completely. When my five year relationship ended and got into a depression, I decided to focus on the word of God and get into ministry and that has really helped me.

Psalms 34:18 tells us that God is closest to the broken hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. This verse really stood out for me during my tough times. Right now am at peace and when I look back am grateful because I have experienced God’s love and comfort.

You might be experiencing pain right now but I want you to know that God is loving and faithful and He uses pain to draw us nearer to Him. Let God in and let Him ease your pain and everything will be okay.
