Beautiful Pain

It’s way different when we actually get a slap of truth about our realizations…
the ugly truth about how ugly one can be in all aspects and angles.
 
No wonder why one gets abandoned. 
No wonder why pain gets to dwell.
…No wonder.

shattered heart

Yet through this agony, one gets to cry out to the only One who truly listens.
No wonder why it’s a beautiful pain.
…No wonder.

“Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer.
From the end of the earth I call to you,
when my heart is faint.”
(Psalm 61:1,2)

“May your unfailing love be my comfort,
according to your promise to your servant.”
(Psalm 119:76)

Empty-hearted

One of the saddest parts of life is when we think that we have plenty when in fact, we are empty.

It is when we realized that more than being empty-handed, we are empty-hearted.

“Empty-hearted” that implies two resounding things:

First, it echoes the rhetorical classic,
“If a tree falls in the desert, and there is no one there to hear it, does it make a sound?”
Love without an object of love negates love itself.

Second, it’s a prequel to being brokenhearted.
A feeling of being pushed away; a constant subtle rejection that seems to never get tired of
breaking broken hearts. 

Negated love. Neglected love. 

Yet in this rock bottom quagmire, emptiness makes quintessential things clearer to see — that we are broken to be made whole again by the only One who can complete us and that the meaning of life that each one of us are striving to find can only be found in the One who created it. 

May our hearts cling on to this truthful statement made by the psalmist…
“If your heart is broken, you’ll find God right there…” 

God is love. He loves.

The Happiest Feeling…

…is when God takes away something you dearly love…but your heart remains at peace.

“I give you peace, peace that you will never find in the world…”

                                                  —John 14:27

If My grace fills your heart, your heart may be broken, but your faith will not be shaken.
