Relationships can be rough especially if we try to take matters into our own hands when God has already spoken. When a relationship ends it can feel like the end of the world for most of us. Whether it’s a friendship, courtship, or business relationship, it hurts!
When you’re going through a horrible breakup, it doesn’t matter how many people tell you that every thing is going to be okay. It still hurts. You just want the pain to stop. You don’t always want to hear the breakup cliche’s and bad relationship advice. Truth is, we want to believe what your loved ones are saying, but it’s hard. How can they know what the future holds? How can they know that God has someone better for me? How do they know anything?
Whenever I’m going through it, I always like to refer back to the one source I know will never fail me. The Bible.
There’s something about reading the word that has a calming effect for just about any situation I may face.
Here are 25 scriptures that helped me tremendously after my most horrible breakup:
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.”
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.
Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice.
Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.
And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze be straight before you.
Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the Lord God is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation.
The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the World gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you.
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.
Wait on the Lord, be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.
For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace.
Therefore let those who suffer according to God’s will entrust their souls to a faithful Creator while doing good.
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
Cast your burden on the LORD, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved.
My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
