It is not yet Valentines Season to write about this sort of thing but it seems love is always in the air.
We have those friends who are hugotero and hugotera (persons with deep profound sayings about love) that makes it easier for us to laugh beyond our pain.
It is easy to learn to love a person especially when we like them. Falling in love with a person is a process.
First, you get acquainted.
Then, you add him or her on Facebook, follow them on twitter or Instagram.
Then you hang out together with your friends.
Then you hang out together exclusively to get to know each other.
That’s the typical cycle of entering a relationship today. What’s next? Well, it depends on . It might a happily ever after or, ouch! broken hearted.
Now where do broken hearts go? People are saying:
- Go to Camp Sawi.
- Go to bars and have some drink till you get drunk!
- Go to your room and cry all day!
- Go hang out with your closest friends to gain sympathy.
But there’s one most people often neglected. Going to Jesus.
Personally, I’ve been into few heartbreaks in the past, and the last one was the most painful for me. And all I can say, all of them led me to become a better version of myself.
When I was broken, no I didn’t go to my friends to tell them what happened, I cried out to God, a time with God is like a time with the one who truly cares.
Going to Jesus might be the last option for many people but little did they know that Jesus is the only answer for all their heartbreaks.
Why Jesus? Because he loved us first. We loved because of it. Only Jesus was the one who love unconditionally yet people hated him for it.
Friend, in times of brokenness only God can make you feel ease for He is close to the broken-hearted. He said; “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. — Matthew 11:28 NLT
