In this video, I talk about how we can handle it when we are hurt.
Script – NOT VERBATIM
“A time to weep and a time to laugh; A time to mourn and a time to dance.”
No matter how we have been hurt, remember things come and go, time passes, and nothing stays the same forever. While it may seem like everything has slowed to a crawl and nothing changes it can and will. It’s up to each of us to reach out to the Father and ask for help, to ask for strength to get through the trying times.
2 Corinthians 2:4
“For out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote to you with many tears; not so that you would be made sorrowful, but that you might know the love which I have especially for you.”
When you have been hurt, don’t be afraid to express your pain – privately between you and God, to a close friend, or maybe even publicly. Paul spent a great deal of time expressing how he felt about things. We can’t let unexpected pain stay inside and grow. It will only poison you and your relationships with others. And it will eventually lead to depression and maybe even bitterness. It’s just not healthy
“And not only this, but also we ourselves, having the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our body.”
God never promised us that we would not be hurt. Remember the God never promises us that our life would be a rose garden. As humans we will have pain and suffering. When Jesus walked the earth he suffered every human emotion that we do. He cried at the loss of a loved one, he suffered pain when he was tortured, and he showed us that no one is immune from suffering. If we use Him as an example and remember to maintain our relationship with God, we can find comfort and solace. Remember whatever pain you are experience is temporary it will end.
