11 Scriptures to Read When Dealing With Heartbreak
Dealing with heartbreak is one of the biggest challenges many of us will face. There’s a good chance that we will all deal with heartbreak at some point in our life.
Heartbreak is common when we lose someone that we love and care about. We can also experience heartbreak if we lose something valuable, or lose an opportunity we had.
We need to deal with our heartbreak in the right way. It will look different for everyone, but we should be intentional about healing our heart. If we don’t deal with our heartbreak, it can grow into worse feelings of depression and hopelessness. We can start believing that our heart will never heal.
One part of dealing with heartbreak is our relationship with God and His Word. God tells us that He is our Comforter, Healer, and Helper. We should rely on Him and know what the Bible says when we need it the most.
