Punched in the emotional face

“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.Great is our Lord and mighty in power; His understanding has no limit”  Psalm 147:3,5 (NIV)

We all go through times of ‘heartbreak’ and disappointment. Those are situations that can create loneliness, discouragement and hopelessness. Life has it’s way of hurting at times. There can be experiences that we run into that make our spirits feel like we’ve been punched right in the nose of our emotions. Other instances may not be as crushing, but still nag away at our being.

The challenge is to not try to escape pain. Instead, we need to confront it. Sure we may have those key people that we can go to for comfort or advice. But going to our all-powerful, yet intimate God is the key to true healing. True growing from any experience. True comfort. ‘His understanding has no limit’!

I recall a time I was hurt deeply by someone. Confused and empty, I decided to go for a car ride with God. That drive was a huge breakthrough for me. I talked a loud to Him, pouring out my heart. Then I listened. Over the years this type of communication with my all-understanding God grew my relationship with Him to another level. I even would have fantastic counseling sessions with Him over dinner at Pizza Hut (I didn’t talk a loud, Mr. Hut and the waitresses would think I flipped).


Heavenly Father, remind me to go to You first with my hurts. Thank You that You completely understand and completely care. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
