When the body is broken and in need of healing we don’t question that. We don’t say it’s taking too long to heal. We can see physical signs of brokenness. We can read the medical reports. But when it’s the heart, the emotions, that are broken and in need of healing that’s a different story. Emotional pain, unlike physical pain, is mostly invisible to the naked eye. You have to really be looking for the signs of an unrest heart. The thing about pain you can’t see is that sometimes you don’t know they’re suffering. Let me assure you that the pain of a broken heart is worse than any physical pain that I’ve ever felt. It lingers. It takes hold and doesn’t easily let go. Even when there are physical signs, tears, not being able to eat or sleep, eating or sleeping too much, people still question the validity of emotional pain. Tell you that you’re being dramatic. Tell you to just get over it already. Just because my pain isn’t visible to you doesn’t mean it isn’t real. And everyone heals at different rates.
But when the heart heals it feels like a weight has been lifted. That you can see the signs of. I can’t wait for that day when the weight of heartache lifts and my world feels a little lighter!
If you’re hurting today I urge to find rest in the arms of God. He is the only one who can heal a broken heart, but you have to give it to Him first. If you need prayer for this, or anything, leave me a comment below. I would be honored to be pray for you.
