Have you ever had your heart broken? Not just in a Hallmark-movie-of-the-month kind of way, but by a friend, spouse, or family member?
Maybe you allowed yourself to be vulnerable, and a friend betrayed your confidence.
Maybe your favorite sibling hurt your feelings, and you’ve spent weeks, months, or even years waiting for the apology you know you deserve.
Maybe your spouse did something to disappoint you, and you aren’t sure how to move past it.
You, your spouse, your sister, and your best friend since high school — every one of us are flawed, broken beings, striving to do and be our best, but often falling short. And sometimes, our shortcomings wound the ones we love the most, or someone else’s flaws bruise our own imperfect hearts.
Proverbs 3:5 says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.”
The Bible instructs us not to ‘lean on our own understanding.’ It is natural to want to reset the balance of hurting relationships, and to rebuild trust with the people we love most. We all want meaningful, dependable relationships that won’t let us down. But we simply aren’t capable of fixing all the brokenness around us, or even within ourselves.
Jesus Christ is the dependable friend we can truly put our trust in.
Our Creator God has a good plan for our lives, and His Son, Jesus, is a good and perfect gift given for each of us: a Friend who will never leave us, never forsake us, and never let us down. When your heart is broken, or you simply need a listening ear, don’t turn inward; turn to Jesus.
The Lord is worthy of our trust, and a relationship with Him is life-changing. Tell a friend!
