It’s okay to admit what you are feeling. Being honest with yourself is crucial for healing!
The Lord Jesus came to give us a life of abundance and an eternal life (which starts now) with God; but Satan came to kill, steal and destroy that life. One of Satan’s traps is to plant seeds of deception in our minds which take root and bloom through negative experiences.
Having faith or being a person of faith doesn’t mean you should deny your emotions or experience. Even the Bible says CONFESS (to God, not necessarily to people) so that you may be healed/forgiven from wrongs (whether spiritual, emotional, moral, etc). Too many people of faith are stuck and in bondage because of what religious people tell them they should feel or think. I spent a long time questioning myself, God and my faith because my truth, my past and experiences were denied. And much of my healing was delayed because my truth was disapproved by the church. We are in Christ and all things are made new, but we still live in a human body with a soul, who experiences and feels the ups and downs of life. When we experience sadness, anger, pain or sickness:
– doesn’t mean we don’t have faith.
– doesn’t mean we don’t know God.
– doesn’t mean we don’t love God.
– doesn’t mean there is something wrong with us.
The enemy tells us lies, either through people or experiences and these grow strong (strongholds) in our lives. But God wants us healed! Be honest with what you are experiencing, even if the religious people around you don’t get it. The Lord gets it! He can take it! He’s not going to shame you for it. And He will definitely not reject you either.
I pray the Lord shows you how to process and cope with your past experiences. May all limiting beliefs be uprooted and the Lord give you the victory. And may any obsessive or tormenting emotions be broken now by the blood of Jesus and the power of His might! In Jesus name, Amen.
You deserve to live a life of wholeness.
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. Psalm 147:3
