When Life Gives Me So Many Heartaches, I Hold On To God

When Life Gives Me So Many Heartaches, I Hold On To God
Zara Walker

When I am grateful, I hug Him.

When I am happy, I celebrate with Him.

When I feel sad, I listen to songs that will remind me of Him.

When I am afraid, I call on to Him.

When I feel so down, I just talk to Him.

When I feel like I don’t want to talk to anyone anymore, I whisper to Him.

When it feels like I can’t, I cry out to Him.

When it feels like the end, I surrender to Him.

When it feels too much, I ask Him to lessen it.

When it’s so heartbreaking, I give Him my heart and tell Him, “Lord I can’t handle these heartaches anymore. Touch my heart and heal me again this time.”

My heart is made by Him but like all the other human hearts, it gets tired. My heart feels weary of all the heartaches. But during these times, I hold on to Him. For I know He will guard my heart. He will not let my heart be enshrouded with hatred and rage.

My heart is made by Him so I give Him the full responsibility. He has the right to make it whole again or not. He holds everything. He is in power.

My heart is made by Him but this is not an exception to the rules. My heart is not immuned to heartaches. I happen to stumble most of the times and my heart is the most damaged part. But I always recover and that’s because of Him.

My heart is made by Him and so my heart will continue to love. It will love no matter what. It will keep on loving the deserving and undeserving people in this world. It will not stop loving until it breaks into pieces. And still, He will mend my broken heart. He will make it whole again.

My heart is made by Him for it to inspire others that despite the many heartaches, it still cares, understands and trusts others. It is willing to wait and hope for greater things.

My heart is made by Him that’s why I know He will not fail. People may fail my heart. People may disappoint my heart. People may break my heart. But He never will. He has promises and I hold on to that.

Lord, I trust You and even when this life gives me so many heart aches, I will trust you even more. I will hold on to Your words, Your promises, Your ways. 

Lord, I trust You and even when this life gives me so many heart aches, I will cling to you even more. I know those heartaches are temporary. I know those are Your ways to teach me and make me learn the difference of genuine love to fake one. The difference of long lasting to a fleeting one. Lord, it is Your love which educates me.

Lord, I trust You and even when this life gives me so many heart aches, I will love even more and hold on to Your plans for me. I will wait and be patient enough.

Lord, I trust You. So when you give me so many heartaches, give me the strength to hold Your hand and never let go. TC mark
