13 A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.
When we lose a loved one, we begin to weep. The heart break feels as if our soul is being torn to pieces. The strain feels as if it is too much to bear. We begin to look back on the memories and think of the laughter we once had shared with them. God will use those memories to keep us going. I know it is going to hurt. However, it is never a true goodbye. It is only a see you later. You may weep and mourn when you think of them, but I promise you will laugh. I promise God will comfort you. I promise the memories will make you strong. So when your heart is broken over a loss, just turn to God and let him hold you. He will let you remember the good times and he will put the pieces of your heart back together.
