FINDING STRENGTH IN THE LORD
We are blessed and God has given us everything we need. However, there are still times we simply wish ourselves away in to heaven so all the pain of this broken world will cease. Our focus is on the pain, and we forget to look at the blessings that are right in front of us. God gives us the strength to make a difference in this world, here and now! There are a lot of sad and discouraging things going on in the world right now, but if you look hard enough, you will also see the many joys and blessings all around you.
Most of us tend to shut our feelings out so we will not feel sad. We lie to ourselves thinking that not feeling is actually working for us, but we are wrong. This injures us more than we really know. If we do this enough, our hearts will ultimately become hard. But what is often difficult to remember is that hurt, can turn in to strength.
Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, and He saved them out of their distresses. He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and broke their chains in pieces.” Psalm 107:13-14
The answer is is not to shut off our feelings in hopes that we do not get hurt. Rather, we call on the lord to save us from the distress and give us strength. We face what is in front of us. This allows us to step toward the ever important process of accepting whatever may be in front of us.
“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.”
Psalm 147:3 NIV
