Broken hearts

as high school kids, many of us have been through emotional turmoil, heartache, or even broken hearts. everybody has there own way of healing these problems. since this is my blog, you get to read what i write. so ha. eat it.

a broken heart heals best....
when we focus on something happy like...well nothing comes to mind. just try it.
when you just let yourself loose and cry your eyes out
when you sleep all day
when your friends take you out to party
when you deny that they broke your heart
when you drive real fast and turn the music up really loud
when you're not around the one who broke your heart in the first place
when you let yourself loose and break something
when you cuss out the person who hurt you
when there is lots of alcohol to be consumed
when someone else comes along for you to sleep with
the the drugs make you forget everything that ever happened....

how about this: the best way to mend a broken heart is to let go of the relationship and fall in love with Jesus Christ all over again (or for the first time if you have not already done this) through prayer, meditating on His Word, and pure, blind faith. by forgetting all that lies behind us and realizing all that He has done for us, we can't go wrong. when we realize the sacrifice He made for us by coming to earth, living a sinless life, dying on the cross while He took the punishment for all of our sins, and then coming back to life again to prove that death holds no power, nothing that happens to us seems to matter anymore. when we lay aside our desire to trust ourselves and put all of our trust in God, nothing can go wrong. He will never leave us or forsake us.

Psalm 121
i will lift up my eyes to the mountains, from where shall my help come? my help comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to slip; He who keeps you will not slumber. behold, He who keeps isreal will neither slumber nor sleep. the Lord is your keeper. the Lord is your shade on your right hand: the sun will not smite you by day, nor the moon by night. the Lord will protect you from all evil; He will keep your soul. the Lord will guard your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forever.

Just think, someday we won't even remember what a broken heart feels like. Or any saddness or pain or whatever. They will be gone forever.

Amen, preach it brotha!!! may I add: to heal from a broken heart is to forgive the heart-braker just like Jesus did with us. come to think of it, we broke His heart more than any of us can imagine. but He didn't brake the relationship--we did. and He died to mend that relationship.

but if it's a guy-girl relationship you're talking about, you should brake the relationship to some extent.

Another fix for that broken heart is letting your best friend's big sister punch the lights out of whoever had the audacity to break your heart in the first place. I'm another girl- so I can. :) LET ME AT 'ER!!!!!!!!

I'm very proud of you, Joe. You're awesome.

The first time I read this, I thought to myself, "This is good."

But then today, something happened to me, and I came across your blog again. I re-read the 3rd paragraph and started to cry a little. Today was the perfect day to read this post-- I can really relate to it.

Thanks for putting it into perspective Joe!
