When the Lord created us He created us in love. He poured into us what in is Him. Before we entered into your mother’s womb Lord place everything good in us. Yes, we were born of sin but our foundation is love. But as we enter into this sinful nature world our lives go through unexpected changes which lead us to mountains of hurt, pain and disappointments. During all the pain, hurt, disappointment and failures, the grounds of our heart become hard and numbed. With pain comes anger and with hurt comes suffering and with disappointment comes sadness. If we are not careful, we will allow these painful emotions to cause us to act in ways that are not pleasing in the eyes of our Father and will cause those whom we love the most that are not matured to leave us alone to fight pain, hurt and disappointment.
Growing pains can be just what it says growing pains. They most come from lack of knowledge, developing knowledge and process that is needful in our lives. As children of God we intend to cover up pains of our heart by getting involved in organizations, clubs groups and churches to hide the pain. We feel if we get involved with these things that our pain will go away, in reality our pain grows. When we get busy involving ourselves into various settings, the thing that caused the pain, hurt and disappointment is in the setting but because we are so eager to involve ourselves we don’t see it and in a set time that what caused the pain comes up and causes us to go into a more devastated place simply because we did not allow the Lord to help us with the pain encounter the first time it took place.
It’s good to be involved with different organizations, however some of us begin to hide ourselves within not deal with life itself. We as human bury our lives in places that will soon cause much more pain to handle. Some of us have experience pain and hurt over and over again and was told that is the only way get in the place God has design for us. Many stumble upon pain, hurt and disappointment before they ask Jesus to come into their life, therefore the seed was planted by an enemy of the past. Therefore, the pain of the past must be dealt with so healing can start taking place in our lives.
Many have no knowledge of why things are being repeated in their lives. It’s the same hurt but through a different individual, place or situation. Each time we experience that pain it grows bigger and our heart and mind grows coarse. This can lead to unknown bitterness which causes anger, hate, malice, evil thoughts or thinking and most of all not forgiving others and themselves. All this things cause our heart and mind to be hardened. When this takes place nothing good can enter in because of the coarse ground in our hearts, so we hide in different organization, clubs church and etc. thinking that be busy will solve it when it only adds on to the pain, hurt and disappointment.
Sad to say that many are unaware of the hardened of their heart and mind, they do not see themselves as prideful judgmental. Although they may read the word of God, go to church, feed the hungry, preach a good sermon, pray an awesome prayer, sow good seeds into the lives of other, but the ground of their own hearts and mind are not prepared to hold good seeds. For good seeds to be sown into the grounds it must be broken up. The Lord desires for us to have a pure heart and renewed minds; He wants to help you with us break up the hardness of our hearts and minds. The come by having a personal relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In Hosea 10:12 Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the LORD, till he come and rain righteousness upon you. Seek the Lord, ask Him to help you through the past hurt, pain and disappointment. There will be time you will experience that pain just as if it took place on yesterday, however keep pouring out to the Lord and He will pour His righteousness into you. Some pain and hurt have been there so long until it has made itself a home in our heart. It will feel as though we are losing something and you will be. It’s time for the past pain and hurt which has caused our life to be filled with anger, hate; bitterness, malice, evil thinking and not forgiving people to go. As we are seeking the Lord for our freedom from the past pain, it may feel as though a part of we are missing, that is the time we are to ask the Holy Spirit to fill in those places with Himself that feels like a big void. The one on one relationship with the Lord is so important to our future, but if we don’t let the past humiliation go our future can be filled greater embarrassment.
In Ezekiel 36:25, 26, 27″Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. ”I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them. As we are seeking the Lord, He will cleanse us from all the filthiness, pain and hurt. All those things that we don’t want to talk about because it’s too embarrassing. Those things that have caused us to stay in a closet of shame, The Lord is washing all of that away from us. A new heart his has in store for us, the heart of stone had no feelings, most of us develop that heart through much painful memories locked up in our minds, tormenting us causing silent rages in our hearts however everyone else sees what we refuse to see. But the heart of flesh has love and compassion, not just towards us, but now we will experience love and compassion for others. Now you can be a part of those things you were hiding in but to be a light drawing people out and not being the one who causes people to run from the light.
After you have allowed the Holy Spirit to help you with the past pain, hurt and disappointments you can walk in the righteousness of the Lord without painful thoughts but a joy knowing the Lord is your God and He is the one that will cause you to have great joy.
The seed of righteousness will spring forth and cause an increase that only the Lord will get the glory from.
