“When we truly understand what it means to love as Jesus Christ loves us, the confusion clears and our priorities align. Our walk as disciples of Christ becomes more joyful. Our lives take on new meaning. Our relationship with our heavenly father becomes more profound. Obedience becomes a joy rather than a burden.”—Dieter F. Uchtdorf (via lasera)
Hello, I was wondering if you had any advice about moving on from a relationship? I trust God & I know it really is for the best but sometimes I worry I’ll never really get over it. Thanks for reading this :) :)
Hello there. Moving on from a relationship, especially if it was a long-lasting one, can be very difficult to do but I promise you, you WILL get through it! I would suggest that you stay away from this person you’re no longer with because often when you’re still around them, the old feelings resurface and can prevent you from moving on fully. Sometimes that may mean not talking to them at all and avoiding them on social networking sites. If you keep looking back at what you had with this person by still being friends on these sites (such as Facebook) you will keep yourself in a cycle of hurt and pain because of what this breakup may have done to you. It is also good to keep your mind moving forward and try to prevent it from going over every detail of your past, something that can continue to keep you trapped from moving on.
Usually when you’re trying to get over someone, it is hard to believe that you can move on and come to a point where you will no longer want them back or will no longer think about them. During those times of doubt, though, remember that our God is one mighty and such faithful God that He will always give you the strength to get through this and allow you to get to a point where you will no longer hang on to someone from your past, but will give you hope for a much better future. I believe that when something ends, it ends for a reason and that God ALWAYS has something better coming along. So even though you feel like you won’t be able to get over them, sooner or later you most definitely will. The best medicine for a broken heart is love from our Lord and during this moving on period in your life, learn to trust God with ALL of your heart, knowing that He loves you with everything He is and knows exactly what you need, even if you can’t see what will come along next.
Along with reading the Bible (like the Psalms, Proverbs, the book of Job, and Isaiah—these have been some of my favorite books) I would suggest buying Jesus Calling by Sarah Young as a daily devotional to help you through this time in your life. You’d be amazed at what a wonderful devotional can do for your faith in God (it has often times blown me away at the messages I have received from that book and how closely it related to my day-to-day walk through getting over my ex). Immerse yourself in God’s love, His word, and the messages He sends you to help you get over your past. This will give you strength and hope that you truly can get over it. This will all take time and will take some hard work at times but I can promise you, your faithfulness to God and always having hope for the future verses having sadness over the past will bring you an abundance of blessings from our Lord.
I hope this has helped, my prayers will be sent your way!
I don’t like the term “falling in love”. When you fall, its a mistake and you always get back up. I want to grow in love with you instead. Learning to love you through the good and bad times. I don’t want our love to be a mistake.
Just because you believe in Jesus, does NOT make you a Christian. Even the devil believes in Jesus... Doesn't make him a Christian. Your faith is defined by who you follow and the denying of yourself. So PICK UP YOUR CROSS, and walk.

Everything happens for a reason, please don’t feel sorry about what happened! I’m honestly in such a better place right now in life, all thanks to God who has brought me out of such a hard heartbreak, leading me to more joy than I have ever experienced! Life is going really well and thank you for your message :)
“When a Christian man and woman systematically deny their own physical desires as an expression of mutual faith and submission to Jesus Christ, they are laying a solid spiritual foundation for their marriage. They’re learning to fight sin as a team. They’re learning to care for each other, pray for each other, and challenge each other. In the most practical of ways, they are submitting to Jesus Christ as the Lord of their relationship.”—Joshua Harris (via inspirationtree)
“Are you hungry for Jesus? Are you hungry for the Holy Spirit for real? Do you want to see revival hit everywhere? Do you want literally the kingdom of heaven to overturn every other system and operation? Cause I do. If you’re hungry for Jesus, good, you’re in the right place. You know why? Because He says, ‘If you’re looking for Me, you’re gonna find Me.’
Pray and ask the Holy Spirit to be real. HE IS. Don’t let anyone discount the power and presence and supernatural wonder of God in our day and age. The Holy Spirit moves, every day. FACT. Healings, signs, wonders- expect it. If you preach a gospel by a resurrected Lord that does not include the power of God, you’re missing out. And the people you’re talking to are missing out.”—Tommy Green of Sleeping Giant (via breanna-lynn)
