Whatever the pain, the cry is the same!!

Make it stop! Those are the words of most any child that gets hurt and it continues to be the cry, though often inwardly, of adults.  Pain is universal.  Everyone has experienced it in some way or another.  There are different types of pain and different levels. 

Types: There is the pain when a loved one passes away.  There is the mental and physical pain of abuse.  There is the pain involved in a break up.  There is the pain experienced when you stump your toe.  There is the pain experienced when you hurt someone else.  There is the endless chronic pain that some suffer with each day due to an illness or disease.  Whatever the type of pain, the cry is the same. “Make it stop!”

Levels: When visiting a doctor for treatment, usually the first thing they ask is if you are in pain.  If so, what level between 1 and 10 with 10 being excruciating.  They use these numbers as a gauge to try and identify with what you are experiencing.  Most of us have different thresholds or tolerances for pain. One person’s 3 may be another person’s 10.  It is all up to the individual.  We should be careful not to tell someone that what they are experiencing is not that bad based on our experiences.  We are to be supporters and comforters if we are well enough in our own right to assist.

Relief: What do you do when you are in pain? There are options! As a child we may have run to our mothers for help.  When your heart is broken from a relationship, do you run to another?  Think again.  There is medication for the pain.  Physical remedies can be found over the counter and are sometimes prescribed.  There are counselors for the mental pain.  Most importantly there is a MIGHTY counselor that handles ALL of the pain.  HE is the Doctor.  HE is the counselor.  HE is the answer.  The bible is full of reminders of God’s healing power and His everlasting love. 

Psalm 34:18 The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.

1 Cor 13: 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Rev 21:4 He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”

If you are hurting due to circumstances or condition, don’t give up.  Be reminded of the answer.  Matthew 7:7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you”.

Just Because You Can't See it Doesn't Meant It's Not There!

Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it's not there. You don't see the wind yet recognize its presence as the trees sway. You don't see the Holy Spirit but you recognize Him in your heart. You don't see God but you see Him in others & witness His wondrous works.

The answer you are seeking is there. It's being worked out. It will be revealed to you when you are ready to receive it. Continue to seek & trust God for it. It's on the way. In the meanwhile, stay in His will and allow Him to lead the way.

Jeremiah 29:11 - 'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future

Let's Do The Math

Deep down we know what our wants needs & desires are. We know how we want to be treated and loved. In my opinion we mess up when we bury those innate desires and settle for something else. We try and bend to fit the mode of what is being offered instead of waiting for what God will provide. The word says if we delight in Him then He will give us the desires of our heart. We get inpatient and think it's not coming or this relationship is close enough so I'll take this. God does not want us to settle. He wants what is best for us.   In another vein, If you are in a relationship and you KNOW without a doubt that you are not being treated the way you should be, why are you still in it? I'm not speaking on marriage. That is a totally different level of commitment.  I'm talking about any other non binding relationship be it a job, a friendship or a coupleship (smile). Are you waiting for something better to come along?  If so, you may be missing what God has for you because you are not in position to receive it. You are bound, tied up and wrapped up in the wrong place and and space. You need to be available to receive your blessing.   Do the math! None of us are average. None of is are less than. We are greater! The word says, greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world 1 John 4:4.  That means the God in us is great. Tell yourself each day that you are great. Even when you are sad, upset, confused, befuddled or disgruntled - you are Great!  You deserve to be happy, fulfilled and satisfied, & living abundantly. I ask that you pray & seek Gods will in your life.  I pray that you be blessed beyond measure as you live in the greatness that is you in Jesus name.  Amen
