Emotional Restoration

Discussion in 'Thoughts for Today' started by Copper25, Aug 6, 2012.

  1. Psalm 147:3) He heals the brokenhearted And binds up their wounds.

    Certainly there is by no means a guarantee of a life free from pain, and certainly this includes emotional pain. This come from many places such as our job or school. Many times we feel hurt because of infractions conferencing the golden rule (Mark 12:31)“‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself”. Insults, slander, and gossip are just a few ways others can hurt you and me. Note that this can happen reversed. Proverbs 12:18 says “reckless words pierce like a sword”. The wounds words can cause penetrate the depths of the soul and can break us bit by bit when they resonate in our minds. (The devil definitely can put thoughts and words in our mind. Weather we choose to accept those thoughts is entirely up to us). Feels don’t just magically disappear at our desire. Emotional states like depression, extend periods of sorrow, and hopelessness can just sit in our heart with no intention to leave. But thanks be unto God we have grace. Let us seek God for the restoration and stabilization of our emotions, especially in those occasions when we are feeling overwhelmed.
  2. It's also great as christians to have close brothers by to build each other up with love, gentleness, kindess... patience. People can be cruel, both Christians and not. Stick close to them, and trust in God.
