I don't know if any of you have moments like this. I can be doing the most mundane thing and God drops something into my brain.
I was driving on one of my many endless journeys with our girls, listening to CDs. Steven Curtis Chapman. The song was about not feeling like you had a home. God whispered the word "heartbroken".
I had been musing on the topic of heartbreak the week before. (God sends weird muses!) I write some of these muses down. Anyway, God said that we should not be surprised by heartbreak because He is heartbroken. I had never thought about it in that way before.
He is heartbroken by the separation from His beloved. He created us to be close to Him. He longs to be with us more than we long to be with Him. His Creation will not be complete until it is reunited.
Does this sound like any of the heartache you have had? The Book says we are to "think it not strange" when troubles come our way. This was His little reminder for me that He knows what it feels like.
I am so thankful for His reminders!
