When the Hurt Won’t Go Away

When my husband left me, I felt a deep and hurting loss…

All of us can remember a hurt that was so devastating that we seem to be unable to shake it. Sometimes, the hurt just doesn’t seem to go away. We have done all we know to do. We have taken all the steps and prayed all the prayers, but still the hurt continues every time we think about it.

After my husband left me, I couldn’t get myself together and I went into depression. One day, I drove out of the garage with the automatic door still closed. I almost crashed through the metal door and broke the garage door opener. That was when I realized that I needed help. I went to the doctor to get pills to help me to focus, but that didn’t help. It only gave me a big stomachache.

Grief has its seasons. Even though I knew the process of inner healing, I needed help.

I went to a professional Christian counselor to deal with the feelings of hurt, anger and loneliness. Through consistent prayer counseling, I was able to get relief and the help I needed.

If the hurt has consumed you, and has taken over your life, it is time you seek out help. We are not placed on this earth by ourselves. From time to time, we need to get the right kind of help from others who can guide us over these difficulties.

Confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed.” James 5:16, ESV.

Sin may be wrong thoughts or ungodly beliefs that you hold concerning the situation. Sometimes we are so close to our present situation that we aren’t able to get a clear perspective on it, and you need professional help. You might consider going to your pastor, counselor, therapist, or life coach.

Father, help me to be honest with You and with myself.  This pain is too much for me to bear alone. Let me not hide my pain any longer. Let me recognize when I need help.  Please lead me to someone who can help me walk through this.  Your Word tells me that You will direct and guide me by Your Spirit, therefore I trust You to direct me to that person.

In Jesus Name, thank You for meeting my need.
