We all have painful and hurtful things that happen in our lives.
Many of those hurtful things can cause us to to withdraw from others, our church, and sometimes even from God.
Those hurts and pains, if not handled correctly, can become a hindrance to our faith and keep us from moving forward into all that God has for our lives here on earth.
So what do we do if our hurts and pains have begun to affect us in this harmful way?
I want to encourage you to take those hurts and pains and bring them to your Healer, Jesus Christ.
Get on the operating table with Him so He can do surgery in your heart to help heal you with His love.
I know from my own experience, that this is a painful process. How many times has He been doing at work in my heart, and I have jumped off the operating table because the pain seemed too great?
Sometimes He has to take you back through those memories so you can let it go to bring the healing you really need.
“You have to feel to heal.”
The Bible says in Pslams that God’s Word is our counselor. I want to encourage you to study, read, and meditate on his Word. His Word brings life and healing into our souls.
It’s also helped me to find a professional Christian counselor who can help me walk through the healing process so I don’t feel so alone.
So my brothers and sisters in Christ, I want to encourage you today to not choose a temporary fix for the pain in your lives. Maybe there’s an addiction that you had turn to for temporary relief from your pain. Maybe have drawn away from others’ and won’t allow people into your lives.
Whatever you have chosen to bring temporary relief for pain, I encourage you to lay that down and look to the true Healer of our souls, our Great Physician, to bring the healing you really need.
It will be a process, and it will take time, but I promise you it’s worth it.
With Love, ❤️
