Another Heartbreak, Another Chance to Grow...

Another turning point in life.
And oh how I remembered telling myself that I never wanna experience this again.
But life is full of risks, and when I gave it my all I opened myself to that same pain and once again here I am.

I must say, it feels far more magnified than previous heartaches.
Just another chapter in life?
Closure...but I'll let time take its toll.

I never saw this coming.
Actually, no.

Priorities have been reshuffled.
No reason to open up again.
But reason to trust God that all things will fall into place.

4 hours of sleep will have to get me through today.
And it's Christmas eve today, the irony.
Yet, I still know my reason for the season.
As much as this has been the most painful Christmas eve, I know Christmas will be the turning point.

I've had enough heartbreaks to last me a lifetime.
Love can be so painful, but yet we were made to love.
Only God's perfect love can be of any standard to depend on.

But for now, it's just God and me on this road.
When everything else fails, God remains faithful.
Wake up call, but He will keep me going.
Thank You Lord for teaching me lessons through heartbreaks.

Time to pick up the pieces.
God knows how long I'll take scouring around for the tiny fragments that have been scattered.
But one thing I do know...I've got a God who is bigger than any circumstances.
Life may be a roller-coaster, but He's the operator and He's in-charge.

This Christmas will definitely be interesting.

Love is overrated.
God is underrated.

Tell me did the wind sweep you off your feet
Did you finally get the change to dance along the light of day
And head back to the Milky Way
And tell me, did Venus blow your mind
Was it everything you wanted to find
And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there

God is love. (1 John 4:8) :P

I agree.
I think I contradicted myself.

But no matter.
It was said rashly I'd say.
We were all made to love, but I guess in this aspect...I'm referring to romantic love.
All those made up fairy tales, not true.

But, I'll love those around matter who.
Still made to love aren't we? : )

Joshua said...

Yes, sir. We were created in His image, and it's His very breath in us that causes this beautifully crafted machine to move. Love is what we're all about. Where we fail (and we all do), is when our love for Him falls short and our love for this world takes over.

Yes, let us always love, and remember to love Him first. :)

The Lord bless you, Matthew.

Matt said...

Amen to that.
I think the best thing there really ever is, is knowing that though we fall short...He still loves us unconditionally.

Amazing love.

God bless you for being such an encourager.

burown was the verification word. Buh-rown. Haha. I've heard some people pronounce it that way. :D Hahaha.

1 Thessalonians 5:11
"Therefore encourage (admonish, exhort) one another and edify (strengthen and build up) one another, just as you are doing."


Matt said...

That was totally random Mr Wright.
But I think you're awesome anyway.
Haha! : )
