How to Mend a Broken Heart

Good Morning!  It seems that the enemy is running rampant right now.  I know so many people that are going through the muck.  There are so many broken hearts in the world.  I came across this treasure in my email and thought I would share it with you.  If you are one of those going through trials and tribulations...if you are one of the broken-hearted...I pray that you will be touched and lifted by this.  If you know somone with a broken heart...share this with them.

How To Mend A Broken Heart?
Here are four steps that are certain to help you up that mountain.

1.  Occupy / 2.  Gratify / 3.  Sanctify / 4.  Glorify.
Occupy:
Occupy your time, don't sit around moping.  Do something. Idleness is the soil of self-pity and depression.  Get busy.  The best thing that you can do is to do something that helps others. It's a universal principle that when you start focusing on helping others, your own problems are diminished.
Don't just stand there, DO SOMETHING!

Gratify:
Write a list of the things you like, then pick three of those things and put those things in your life - now.  Make sure you can afford them and that they aren't harmful.  When our hearts are broken, we often deprive ourselves of the things we enjoy. Make an effort to put enjoyment in your life.

Sanctify:
Do good.  Don't return evil for evil, hurt for hurt, pain for pain.  Don't wish something horrible would happen to the other person.  Hope for their good fortune in your spirit, and it just may release your good fortune in your world.

The easiest way to forget someone, is to truly wish them well.

Glorify:
Life is not over.  You can live without them.  Not only can you live without them, you can live  even happier without them.  It is a matter of perspective.  Even with the negative in your world at the moment, there is something for which you can be thankful.

There is plenty to be thankful for actually.  Give God the glory for what you have.  You can't be sad and thankful at the same time.

Tell heartbreak to move over.

If you are suffering from a broken heart today, give these 4 steps a try.  Without sounding too cliche', time truly does ease the pain and Jesus heals.

Yes, i t does seem there are so many people hurting from a broken heart. The Word of God says to pray for your enemy and praying for someone that has hurt you is not quite the same but once you start praying for that person to be blessed (the 1st and 2nd time is the hardest) a person will be amazed at the tenderness of the heart and the weight that is lifted from them. Very good advice and am praying it helps someone in need.

Blessings to you and love you so much.
