These are all parts of life and our Lord Jesus is the only one who can see us throiugh all the pain by living a life of love, forgiveness and by His grace.
Shelly, I sure can understand where you are coming from and what made you write to share.
Writing empties you out from all the hurt and pain and allows you to see things in a new persepective and a new light and allows us to be more balanced and to go on with living our lives through the pain and allows us to be healed by the grace of Jesus.
This is such a good part of you of how willing you are to share all the different parts of your life, the good and the bad and the painful and the hurting as well as the healing and loving part of it all.
Our Lord wants us to be real and authentic knowing that what we are going through at the time will be able to help someone else with our experience of what we went through and how we handled the pain and misfortune.
Our trials and tribulations are not just for us but also for others to learn by.
A few years ago I had a friend who knew part of a situation. She was on the outside looking in and only saw the surface of the end result. On the surface it looked as though I had done something wrong. However, it was the other person in this situation which was breaking my heart. I remember this pain well, and what made it so much worse was I felt like I could not defend myself. I ended up writing the poem below to release my feelings.
We were all in pain recovering in different ways, and at different levels. I choose to pray through it, and asked God to act as my defender. I never opened my mouth to protect myself, nor defend my actions. In doing so I was able to be judged, while not talking about the person who still was causing me pain.
I knew we were both hurting, and struggling. The person on the outside saw one side of the emotional wounds, she was unable to see my wounded heartt, which were developing scars. Through my obedience and prayers to God He healed my wounds which were becoming scars. God also healed the friendship, and no words were necessary between anyone. It was God's power not through our words but rather through our prayers that made everything better. God works wonders through His love and the love we have for one another, acted out through kindness and goodness He is shown through us. This completes us in ways the world can never touch to gratuity us.
Seek the Lord in all your ways and you shall be made whole. I believe this is in the bible somewhere. I know it for myself through this life I live.
I fail and I stumble, and at times I do not live as I should. However, I am constantly renewing myself, my soul, my spirit through God's word, and this my friend makes all the difference! I did not live up to my standards yesterday, nor God's standards. But today is a new day to live out God's will. I chose. And with God's help and strength I can make Him proud as I work hard at keeping Him first every single day, through my thoughts, words, & actions
