Praying When it Hurts
Hi there Lovebugs :)
Everyone handles disappointment and hurt differently. Some people choose to cry it out. Others may choose to write it out. Whatever way we decide to deal with things, the fact of the matter is, we MUST deal with things. Holding things in will only cause things to fester which will eventually lead to an explosion. It may cause you to lash out, break things and act in ways that are unhealthy. So what should we do?? Pray.
Prayer is simply dialogue between you and God. It is during prayer that you can release your fears, your frustration and your hurt to God. Ask Him to help you move on. Ask Him for guidance and direction in doing so. The Bible says "as we draw closer to God, God draws closer to us" (James 4:8). So the more we turn to Him, the closer we are to freedom.
So the next time something happens that upsets you, pray about it. Be still and know that God will work everything out even when everything feels and even looks wrong. God will see you through and even GROW you through the process. Hold on Sista! Help is on the way. In the meantime, all you gotta do is pray!
