Hurting, Yet Comforted by Love; Talking Heart2Heart

Hurting, Yet Comforted by LOVE...

Hurting, Yet Comforted by LOVE…

I have heard many say, “Love should not hurt.” I disagree, but this is my opinion and my experience, so if you disagree with me that is perfectly fine. There are many circumstances of love that may be painful as well. Love and hurting (pain) is closely related because of your emotional senses. Love is an emotion triggered by your senses to pin-point needs and meeting those needs. Love encourages one to expose the most prized possession; The HEART. When the heart is involved, you can be sure the emotions are awaken to feel. I find it hard to believe that anyone can experience LOVE on any level without pain at some point. If you have not experienced pain, I would question the Love. While you may be hurting, yet comforted by love through the power of God as he strengthens you. Luke 23:34 Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”

Love with a PURPOSE....

Love with a PURPOSE….

Love is giving your all to prevent the suffering of another, so yes LOVE does hurt. John 3:16 “For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son so that anyone who believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” Jesus suffered through torture, shame, and dishonor for the Love of the world. This Love hurt, yet he was comforted by the power of God. God gave him the strength to endure the pain, shame, sickness, diseases, poverty, lack, hate, weakness, and everything in between for the LOVE of others. Luke 22:42 “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.”

The most painful situation involving love is losing someone to death, and this type of hurt can seem unbearable or even impossible to bear. When you lose a mother, father, sister, brother, child, or husband, this pain pierces your heart to the core of your inner being. John 14:27 “I am leaving you with a gift — peace of mind and heart! And the peace I give isn’t fragile like the peace the world gives. So don’t be troubled or afraid.” I’m convinced that this pain is NOT like any other pain. How do you recover from such a devastating uproar of your soul? How do you resume life? How do you pick up the shattered pieces of what your life now consist of? How do you find the person you once were? How do you fill the void in your life? How do you get over the shock of the lost? How do you comprehend such an unbelievable lost of life? How do you make sense of the lost enough to move on? Ephesians 3:20 Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us. 

God is the healer of all WOUNDS...

God is the healer of all WOUNDS…

The questions are legitimate and heartfelt from a wounded heart searching for answers.  Luke 8:17 For nothing is hidden that won’t be revealed, and there is nothing secret that will not be made known and come to light. The human mind is naturally inquisitive about all things and wanting to know the what, why, how, when, and who. Understanding a situation soothes the human mind. This may not always be good for the mind of a human because we are made of feelings wrapped in emotions. As humans we tend to want everything now, but we may not always know whats best. Isaiah 55:8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD. So even if the many questions still linger without answers, the time will come when God will show all things.

We all may have lost a loved one at one time or another, and it’s difficult when you can’t make heads or tails of why your loved one died. This seems to be the hardest part of dealing with death because the acceptance of the situation is somehow based on the understanding of how and why it happened. If you could only understand, then you can make better sense of the situation. Many struggle with the thought of never understanding the why’s and how’s of the passing of a dear loved-one. The struggle appears to be in the mind because it’s the place where things have to make logical sense in our world. But the heart is where the pain, void, emptiness, and loneliness resides.

Even through the struggles in life, God is always with us. Deuteronomy 31:8 It is the LORD who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed. God never promised us a life without pain or sorrow, but his word will give us strength and comfort along the way. So as trials and tribulations arise in life, just know that God is not the author of accidents or death. God is not the god of this earth that seat is held by SATAN. When Adam sinned, it gave the DEVIL legal right to enter the earth as well as interfering in lives. So when incidents occur causing death it’s not at the hands of Almighty God. John 10:10 The thief’s purpose is to steal, kill and destroy. My (GOD) purpose is to give life in all its fullness. God is the giver of life, and all its goodness. So when death visits your family and sweeps your loved one away; just know that God had NO hand in that incident. As we live in this imperfect world, there are imperfect things that will occur to all people. God is good and all good things comes from God, and he is incapable of partaking in evil doing.

God is LOVE… and He got You…
