I can't say I LOVE hurt. But what I can tell you about it is ... It's definitely a learning experience.
I recently experienced a hurt that I haven't felt before ... The hurt of a broken heart. I learned so much from the experience. Again, I wouldn't say I've enjoyed the process or wish it on anyone, but I have to say in the moment when I needed to speak confidently I was able to. God has given me that CONFIDENCE to be who I am & not be afraid to stand up for myself.
I've also learned that I don't need a guy to tell me I'm beautiful or special because God made me perfect and I am beautiful and special to him! I also know that it doesn't mean anything if a guy tells me I'm not worth it because if I wasn't worth it then I wouldn't be here.
By the grace of God he is mending my broken heart. It takes time, ALOT of time, but it's a work in progress. And one day I will be happy ... so happy I won't even know what to do with myself, and until that happens I'm just going to keep perservering through the hard days knowing that God will be right beside me the whole way through.
What an amazing thought,
"'Never will I leave you, Never will I forsake you'. So we say with CONFIDENCE, 'The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mortals do to me?'" (Hebrews 13:5b-6).
This gives me such HOPE ... We may get broken hearts or get hurt or be in pain, but in the end the Lord will never leave us, He is our helper and at the end of the day no man can burden us because the Lord takes that burden from us. I have so much to be thankful for!
I think I have been somewhat wallowing in my pain ... NO MORE! I don't want this hurt to be a negative in my life, I want to learn as much from it as I can and if I think about it in a more positive way I will be able to get over it more quickly & not be bitter.
