FMF: Pain

Back again friends. Late post today. Forgot to do it before I took off for the day and haven’t been home since I left at 9:30a.

Here it goes

Pain, something that we all are familiar with. For some it starts right at birth. Others, in their childhood. Fortunate few it holds off until adolescence.

Pain looks different for every one. As does the way they deal with pain.

Growing up, I dealt with pain through eating. When I was sad, I ate. When I was stressed, I ate. When I was hurting, I ate. Eating became the way I dealt with everything.

The way I deal with pain now, is different. Not easy, but different. Each day, I am choosing to use a different method of healing. I am running to the Ultimate Healer to ease my pain.

Pain from the past still arises. Pain from the current while it still oozes. Pain from the recent past, still stings when thought through.

This pain, no matter how hard it may be right now, is only temporary. The pain that I know now is nothing compared to the joy I will know in the end. After all, seeking the Healer of all pain instead of something else is the point of the life after-all, isn’t it?

STOP

  1. Wonderful post! (and can I just say I loved that you almost forgot to blog?) 🙂
    yes–why do we search for comfort elsewhere….why do we settle for more band-aides when we could have healing by the Great Physician…
    I’m still striving to not be okay with band-aides…but I’m getting better. one day at a time!

    • Oh friend, if only you all knew how often that was a reality and I just don’t fess up to it. I can’t even count the number of times it’s like 10 or 11 at night and I’m like “oh crap! I need to blog something today.” ha.

      I have usually face a similar question when it comes to the Great Physician. Mine looks like this “why do we so often trust HUMAN physicians over trusting the Great Physician?” Challenges my perspective/motivation almost every time.

      Baby steps is what it’s all about. One.day.at.a.time. One.step.at.a.time. One.breath.at.a.time.

    • Sharing our hearts is what blogging is all about right? It’s what I strive for. After-all, for me, the more of my heart I share, the more authentic this site is, the more chance of reaching others in new ways for Him. Thanks for stopping over!

    • Aww. Thanks Katie. I, too, dwell on the here and the now as well as the me side of it. It’s hard work to change that to focusing on Him and His plan through it, but when it becomes reflex, it will be oh so beautiful.
