I'm a huge fan of positivity. As a matter of fact, I'm probably the biggest optimistic person you will ever encounter. I always try to find the positivity in everything. I speak positive affirmations and believe God is in the blessing business. What happens when the blessing doesn't come? What happens when an unexpected, life shattering event happens?
I have survived some shattering heartbreaks unexpectedly. I've been fired from a job, divorce, loved ones die, money stolen, kids disobedient, failed business, the list goes on. I cried, got depressed, then cried some more because I was depressed. I had to learn that life is not perfect and it's okay to be sad. It's okay to be disappointed. It's okay to be angry. It's okay to mourn and cry.
One thing that the Bible reminds me of is these feeling will come but don't stay in those feelings because joy does come in the morning. "For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning," NKJV Bible. Joy comes because of faith in God. During my times of heartbreak and depression, I had to read the Bible and listen to gospel music all the time. I let God's word speak to my heart. I worshipped God to let His spirit of love take over my spirit of hopelessness. I fought for my joy. I fought for my spirit of forgiveness toward those that cause me pain. It is possible to overcome unexpected heartbreak.
I pray that everyone reading this will fight the good fight of faith. There is so much negativity going on right now, hope is much needed. There is good news knowing that all of the bad things going on will not last forever. Stay joyful in these days by leaning on faith. Don't give up on God because He is there waiting on you to push your way to life you want. Push your way to a life of happiness, love, and joy with faith in God. Push your way through when unexpected heartache occurs.
