Today, what if…
What if you were the one hurting,
the one in need .What if your money was not enough to feed your family today?What if you your joy was no longer yours?
When was the last time you stood still? Looking and listening. Maybe while you are at a ball game, the shopping mall, maybe even in church.As I am a survivor,I find myself seeing the hurt in the lives of others.While asking God, how can I help?One thing I have found is, many people do not want to go to that place, their place of pain.I can see where people pile work, pressures, pain ,and fears, all the emotions they do not want to deal with.They place their pain into their hiding place.
What I have found and, this is me. I don’t speak for any one else, I dont know a lot , I can’t recall all. I’m not well learned ,that I have accepted.What I do know is PAIN .
It is real,it is in each of us. What is important is where do you put your pain.Also pain for one may be a great joy for someone else. We will become a stronger,healthier world when judgement of others end. We don’t have the right to judge yet still we do. We dont get the right to have our way in others life.Yet we do are best to make others feel the ways we believe we want them to be.
When new life is born it is a great time. For others it can be sorrow,maybe they lost a child, maybe they can’t have a child.What we are called to do is LOVE. And in our love our pain will be healed!
*1Corinthians13:4 Love IS patient and kind.Love is NOT jealous or boastful or proud (v 5)or rude.It does NOT demand its own way.It is NOT irritable and it keeps NO record of being wronged.(6)It does NOT rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out.(7)LOVE NEVER GIVES UP,NEVER LOSES FAITH,is always hopeful,and endures through every circumstance.
I just now had to stop.I saw where I did NOT release a wrong done to me .I was a very small thing, and yet I put it in my place of , (its ok place) I will just bury it .
What happens is when we truly become real with God (in us )He reveals His love! Then the hurt becomes the healed .
Can you see the hurt in others? Or is your pain all you see ?I have found as I reach out to others. Jesus reaches to me.I would like to encourage you to open the pain.Hit the remote.Just like we have a electric remote to use for our cars to go into garage for protection. Use Gods love to open the door to the pain.He is our protection!
So when your remote does not work ,your choice is the leave the car in the drive,(letting the pain to go unprotected).Or get out and open the door yourself.( Dont pack the pain)
Here is one to chew on…My car is broke ,and there is no room in the garage <:
Would love to hear your thoughts !!
One that walks on, Never alone !
