Are you scared to be HURT? To be in PAIN? To be heart BROKEN? There are certain circumstances in our life that are inevitable to bring us pain, like losing a loved one, being sick or someone intentionally hurting us. However, there is this kind of pain also that is a consequence of the choices we make. It is the kind of pain that we don’t want to go through because we know it could break us big time.
It could be letting go of a wrong relationship, it could be giving up a compromising business, it could be stopping an addiction, it could be reconciling with a family or friend. Whatever it is that will cause you brokenness and deep hurt, always remember that God’s desire for you is to live a life free from any bondage. God loves you so much that sometimes He has to allow you to go through brokenness so that He can make you whole again and He could give you a life that is truly abundant. The best part of this brokenness is He will always be with you and carry you through.
My friend, don’t be afraid to go through brokenness that will bring a lasting peace in your life. It is never too late. You just have to let go and let God work in your life. Always remember, God wants what is best for you.
“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Psalm 34:18
It is so true that in the pursuit of pleasure, we chose to do so many things that damaged and hurt us. We chose to compromise that in the end, turned those temporary pleasures into deep wounds that are so painful to heal and leave us scars.
If you are in this situation, don’t lose hope. What’s amazing about God is He can turn those scars into something beautiful. The consequences maybe painful but God will carry you through if you stop and turn to Him. Turning to God and pursuing Him instead will give you a brand new start. It is never too late.
If you are in the verge of compromising, STOP! If you seek pleasure, seek God. He alone can give you pleasure and joy that will last. He alone can satisfy you. There are no regrets when you choose to obey and wait on God.
“For He has satisfied the thirsty soul, and the hungry soul He has filled with what is good.” Psalm 107:9
No one can judge you on how you go through pain. There is no big or small pain. To each is it’s own. There is also no right formula on how to overcome pain. How God created us also includes our own unique way of dealing pain. However, what is common to all of us is that we should be able to overcome it. We may dwell on it but we must not remain dwelling on it like there is no hope of healing. How are you overcoming pain in your life? Do you know that God is the GREATEST COMFORTER? The deepest thoughts and emotions that we could not describe, He ALONE can give the kind of comfort that we need. He sees the depth of our pain even without words. God can help us overcome as He comforts us. Don’t dwell.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” – Jesus
