Four Guidelines for Expressing Spiritual Heartbreak
1. Let the emotions flow.
Application: Emotions are human. We shouldn’t seek to block them.
2. Emotions should never block hope and love.
Application: Allow hope to sustain in ways that emotions cannot.
3. God’s purposes are believable and true.
Application: Ask God for the grace to trust that your circumstances ARE His plans.
4. We must trust God with the past, present, and future.
Application: Would we want a God we could fully understand?
Summary: The death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus remind us that no depth of human experience can overpower the hope we have in our Lord.
