How to Handle Heartbreak

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.—Psalm 147:3 (NIV)

Elisabeth Elliot wrote , “Repeatedly throughout our lives we encounter the roadblock of suffering. What do we do with it? Our answer will determine what we can say to another who needs comfort.” No one knows all of the answers or why things happen, but we can choose to trust God in every situation and always look for the good.

Lord, help me through times of sorrow and please reassure that my struggles are preparing me for the future.
