Some of the biggest blessings comes from the worst pain. Many times when we are in the middle of such pain it is too difficult to see how things will work out.It is hard to see where your life will be in light of present circumstances in 5 or 10 years from now.
I have been though many tough situations that changed my life direction forever. Some good some bad.In the end they were only difficult for a short time in comparison to the future,and I have to say life has been good to me.
My advise for going through painful things:
1.Keep your head up. You are stronger than you think.
2.Pray. The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.Psalms 34:18
3.Remember that this will not last forever. 5 or 10 years down the road you will look back at this moment and know that you are better for it.
4. Forgive quickly. It is much easier to move on when you let things go. Even if you need to forgive yourself, do it. God thinks you are worth it he has forgiven you so should you. If you need to forgive someone else, do it and remind yourself they are forgiven every morning. Soon your feeling will catch up to it. You can’t fully move forward until you do.
5.Cry. do what ever you need to do to experience your grief ,pain , hurt,ect…..then let it be over.You cant experience a better future until you have completely dealt with the past( even if the past was just yesterday).When it is done move on and don’t let yourself to go back again.let the past be just that.
6.Praise God. He is your comfort. When you open yourself up to praise you feel better. It may be the only thing at 1st that helps get you through the day.
7. Smile. Don’t let your emotions dictate your outcome. It may feel un-natural, but you will soon appreciate the smiles you get back.
8.Learn. Some things we go through are for us to learn from them. Take a deep look at your self and see if there is something that needs to change. Then ask God to help you.
These are a few things that has helped me through some pretty painful things in the past. They sound harder than what they are. I know that I am a better person for the things that I went through.I pray they help you,too.
