A righteous man may have many troubles but the Lord delivers him from them all-Psalms 34:19 NIV
Can't figure out why things have turned out the way they have? Searching for answers all around while racking your brain for some sort of understanding? Does this sound familiar?
Just in case you don't know or may have forgotten nothing happens in this life by accident, chance or coincidence. We know this because everything that has taken and will take place from birth to death has already been spoken of by God (all things have been predestined according to the PLAN of God-Ephesians 1:11 NIV). So it's safe to say that your heartache didn't just fall into your lap because you're unlucky.
Heartache is wonderful and beautiful! Now I know that you're probably saying "WHAT" and how in the world can despair be viewed as wonderful much less beautiful? Well it can be! Living through heartache creates an increase in prosperity (Jeremiah 29:11 NIV). Now do you see the beauty? I sure hope so.
If you're heart is hurting count it all joy (James 1:2 NIV) because your heartache isn't in vain.
