Trial Turned Testimonies

DEALING WITH PAIN

24. 05. 2018|| PAIN

I have emotions.

I get happy.

I am strong.

I am bold.

I am super confident, sometimes its taken for being too blunt.

I easily adapt.

I laugh a lot.

And yes, I get sad.

Surprised? See….

I cry too, over irrelevant things sometimes.

I feel pain.

I get hurt, disappointed.

Maybe because I set expectations for others to fulfill…

Maybe because I give others a certain standard to attain and fall apart when they don’t…

Maybe because I set goals for myself I’m not able to see through…

Maybe I’m so much of a strict planner that when the plans don’t work I feel frustrated…

Or I’m just human? 

Or I’m just stuck in my self wall that I forget others too have emotions…

I let my emotions all out forgetting others can be affected by it…

How do you express pain, is there a certian level of outburst of pain elthat can be tagged as ever enough?

Recently, I’m sharing in pain with my friend, who lost a family friend. The situation is a complicated one and while praying this morning I realized how deeply hurt, wounded and sore this family would be going through and I cried out my eyes to God. This scripture poured out in my spirit.

“To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord , that he might be glorified.”

Isaiah 61:3 KJV

In such deep thought and weight I asked how one can deal with pain, and then I realized that God had helped me deal with different levels of pain at different stages of my life.

I could be what some call always on the “ebb and flow”. So I had to ask for a strong spirit and follow God’s leading, and trust me its been fulfilling. 

Now, I want to debunk the notion or ideology that seeking spiritual help cannot ease the pain. It absolutely can, nevertheless, we need shoulders to rest on and talk to in trying times.

I see scenarios where people don’t get out of pain, the pain finally comes and overwhelms them and i feel really sad, really really sad. 

So I’m ready to walk this road with you, and by the Grace of God available through Christ Jesus, you will overcome, that I believe.

So reach out to me and let’s talk!!!!
