Recently, someone close to me, someone that I love and thought I could trust, turned her back on me. She gave me no explanation, she gave me no warning, she simply packed up her belongings and left. She won’t talk to me, she won’t answer my messages, so I’m left with nothing but unanswered questions.
It’s been a rough week.
I’ve run through my emotions like water, and am still nowhere near the end. I’m heartbroken and confused and hurt. I think the hardest part of this all is the simple fact that I was given no opportunity to talk to her about anything, let alone given the chance to say goodbye.
That’s why I am so very glad that I am not alone. The Bible says in Psalm 120:1, “I call on the Lord in my distress, and he answers me.”
As confusing and stressful as this is I can go to God and He will never leave me, never forsake me (Deut. 31:8). He will always be there for me, He is my shoulder to cry on, He is the arms that hold me when I am weak. (Ps 55:22). He is my refuge in times of trouble (Ps 118:14).
The Bible says in Isaiah 41:10, “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
With time, my heart will heal. I may never have the answers, but I can rest in the certainty that God does. And God’s got my heart in His hands. And if you’re going through something similar, please know, that God’s got your back too.
