Two weeks ago as I was cleaning my house, I didn’t notice the soapy water which was on the floor. I slipped and had a great fall. I flew like spider man. I was alone in the house during that time. Though it was very painful I had to be brave and strong. I crawled out of the water and I was sure that my bones were broken.
But I kept telling ‘All is well’. I picked up the phone to call my husband and as soon as I heard his voice I became weak. I felt the pain and was crying Ouch! Ouch! Its paining. But praise God for His protection that none of my bones were broken.
Sometimes we go to God and cry out Ouch! Lord its paining.
Friends, physical pain is to the body what emotional pain is to the spirit. Physical pain warns you that something in your body is out of order and requires attention that you are not well. Emotional pain also points to an area where healing or restoration is needed.
Don’t ignore these signals and don’t let them control you. You need to be true to yourself. You need a place alone with God, to sit down, reflect and rectify what is going on in your life. It is important to come to a place of separation with God and decide to live on.
In Jonah 2:2, Jonah cries out to the Lord, “I cried out to the Lord because of my affliction and HE answered me. Out of the belly of Sheol I cried, and You heard my voice. “
You can survive the loss of anything in life, but you cannot survive without God. He is the force that allows you to overcome everything, and His grace enables you to overcome the emotional pain. Check whether you still have bitterness over anything. Then, that is a sign that the healing process in you is not finished.
Let go into God’s hands and He will make you whole.
What emotional pain are you going through? Are you silently crying out Ouch! to the Lord?
