Do you ever wake up in the morning in terrible pain? Sometimes it is physical pain. Other times it is anguish of the soul. It is not a good way to start the day.
About six months ago I tried to run. I hurt my knees. My right knee constantly throbs but I usually ignore it and go for my half hour walk anyway. This morning my knee is hurting terribly. I am in pain. There is no way I can go on my walk this morning. Maybe I will have to wait until this afternoon or tomorrow. My wrist is broken in several places and that is hurting also. It has been hurting and healing for six weeks. I hate waiting.
I will take my ibuprofen and hope that the pain goes away. Too bad there is not a pill we can take to alleviate heartbreak, grief and sorrow. It takes a long time and Jesus to heal our soul when we are hurting. There is no bandage we can put an emotional pain. There is no pill that cures a broken heart. We can take antidepressants, and I do, and I find them very helpful, however they do not cure heartbreak, sorrow and grief.
If you are in pain today, whether physical or mental I suggest you do the following.
Choose acceptance. Stop fighting the things you are powerless to change. Ask God to help you. Pray this prayer:
Go to Google and put in “Bible verse” and any topic that you think you need. You may put in rejection, poverty, sickness, depression, anger, envy, grief, or any other topic . God’s word brings comfort to my soul in a way that nothing else can.
I also suggest you get outdoors and enjoy the sunshine. I may not be able to walk this morning but I will definitely be spending time sitting out in the warm air and sunshine. Cloudy gray rainy days make me depressed. Sunny days make me happy.
I care about you dear reader. If you are in need of prayer please leave your name below and I will pray for you. You do not even have to give the reason unless you want to. God loves you so much and I do too.
