"Winter has come back again.
Feels like the season won't end.
My faith is tired tonight,
And I won't try to pretend
I've got it all figured out,
that I don't have any doubts.
I've got a busted heart,
I need You now."
~Busted Heart by For King & Country
Hey, how are you? Oh, still broken? Yeah, I know. I can feel it, thanks. How am I doing? Oh, ya know... trying to mask my hurt, that's all. Yeah, it's all cool. No biggie. Just shootin' the breeze out on the road, trying to drive away from all my troubles. So... how's the healing process going? Oh, it's not? But... we talked about this, man. C'mon, I need you to heal now, okay?
If you're reading this and you've had a broken heart, the joke isn't on you. No matter your age, it still hurts, right? I've heard so many times that teenagers don't really know what love is, and yeah, I believe them in a lot of ways, but there are some ways that I disagree with... for instance, I cared for someone a lot, and then... well... it turned out that they were pretending to be someone they weren't.
But enough about me. Let's talk about this broken heart business. Hurts like crazy, huh? Been there. Trust me, I know. I'm not an expert on healing broken hearts, and unfortunately words won't do the healing for you, either. God does! It takes a lot of time, too. I mean, I just started letting everything go, and it's been like... three months. Okay, but get this. IT'S SO FREEING!!!! Once you let go, you just... I don't know... it's just... this amazing feeling that I can't really explain. If you have your own experience of just letting go and letting God, I'd love to hear it. This is an amazing feeling, even though it still hurts every once and while, it's so worth it.
Dear Broken Heart,
Yeah, it's me again. Hi. Um, you see... I'm making a choice to stop letting this person control my time and thoughts... because honestly he's done nothing but hurt me, even if he doesn't realize that. So... yeah, if you could start healing now, that'd be awesome.
P.S. I know it's really You behind healing, God. ;)
