How often do we get hurt and then due to the pain, we put a pause on enjoying our life? Some of us pause for so long that it begins to look permanent. Unprocessed pain kills people. It metastasizes, and it destroys, so PROCESS THE PAIN. We all have options. Everyone cannot afford a counselor, but we can afford a pencil and paper, and we CAN process it with God.

External Behavior Is A Symptom

Why did we get mad at the boss, kick the trash can and pout at our desk? It wasn’t about today; it was about yesterday, or it goes further back to when we were a child. Unprocessed pain is like the flu, if we don’t throw up and get that stuff out of us it will just get worse. Once we get that stuff out of us, the healing can begin, and we can enjoy our life.

The Forgiveness Is For You

For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. (Matthew 6:14) When we forgive others, we leave the vengeance to God (Romans 12:19). When we let go, we let ourselves off of the hook to get revenge, and we appropriately put that person on God’s hook.

Let’s Pray Together

Lord, we all have our pain points, some are recent, and some go back thirty years. You know what those are for each of us. Reveal those areas of unprocessed pain, help us to face them, and to allow you to touch that area and begin our healing. We receive your peace that surpasses all understanding (Philippians 4:7). We receive your love and instead of pause, we will press play to resume our joy. Amen!
