Feeling Crushed & Alone? This Will Make You Feel Better.

You’re inconsolable & in anguish. Your tears have burned your eyes. You clutch on your chest because your heart is pain, it feels heavy and your soul is crushed. 

I’ve broken down the same way too. With tears running down my face, I’ve imagine God staring at me, in a detached mood. “If He cared, if He understood how much it hurts to be feeling this way, He would stop it immediately,” I’ve cried, feeling alone and wrapped in pain. 

So you can imagine the comfort I felt when I realized that He is actively present with us when we go through such times. Not only that, but that it also hurts him when we’re heartbroken.

Psalm 34:15 ESV 

The eyes of the LORD are toward the righteous and his ears toward their cry

John 11:33 ESV / 27 helpful votes

When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in his spirit and greatly troubled.

Psalm 147:3 ESV

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.

Psalm 34:18-20 ESV 

The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them all. He keeps all his bones; not one of them is broken.

What I learnt from those verses that you should know, during such moments, when you are heartbroken, He is with you. You are not alone. His heart breaks with you, each pain in your heart. He understands. His love surrounds you at such moments. With tenderness and compassion, He weeps with you.

I completely understand that problems can cause you to feel isolated. This is to remind you that He sees your pain, He feels the intensity of your heartbreak. To you, on a scale of 1-10, your pain is a 10, he feels the immeasurable pain that you’re feeling, the same pain, He feels its intense ache. He knows you as a person, He knows your likes & dislikes, He knows what makes you laugh & he understands exactly why your heart is breaking. He sees your point of view, He has compassion for you. His joy is not in seeing you destroyed by pain, as a matter of fact, His heart breaks too. 

When I was younger, there was this poem that was in my mother’s book. Later on I discovered that it was the lyrics to a song, which I’ve still not heard. But this poem, touched my soul, whenever a friend of mine was going through a problem, I would write  it in beautiful calligraphy, send it to them, hoping it would make them feel some comfort. Because it spoke better than I could ever want.

 Here it is, I’m sharing it with you because I also want you to feel comforted in knowing that you are not alone in your pain. 

TEARS ARE A LANGUAGE

Often you wonder why tears come into your eyes

And burdens seem to be much more than you can stand

But God is standing near

He sees your falling tear

Tears are a language God understands

God sees the tears of a broken hearted soul

He sees your tears and hears them when they fall

God weeps along with man and takes him by the hand

Tears are a language God understands

When grief has left you low

It causes tears to flow

And things have not turned out

The way that you have planned

But God won’t forget you

His promises are true

Tears are a language God understands

God sees the tears of a broken hearted soul

He sees your tears and hears them when they fall

God weeps along with man and takes him by the hand

Tears are a language God understands
