Ouch! That hurts! ?

AMED 45.03

Home | A Miracle Every Day | Miracles | Ouch! That hurts! ?

The first step of any emotional healing is to admit you are hurt. Denial and pride are a vicious combination that stops us from admitting hurt or personal pain.

How many times have you heard people say, Im just fine, thank you”? Now, you can tell its not true, but you cant make them be real with you because they are probably not real with themselves. Thats what you call denial. People who are in denial arent even aware they’re messed up. Then even those who are struggling have so much trouble being honest. 

King David did not have this problem. 

Have you ever read the Psalms? That man was so in touch with his feelings and failures that he wrote songs about them. Check out Psalm 6:2: Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I am weak; O Lord, heal me, for my bones are troubled.” (Psalms 6:2, NKJV) 

He admits to being weak. Do you know how hard that is for a man?

As a child, I remember the day I fell next to our home. I ran to my dad, covered in blood, and his comforting words still ring in my ears: “Go see your mom”. My dad was a war veteran who had little time or emotional equipment to fix my booboo. Thats how I was raised. 

How about you? If you are a woman, you’re generally more in touch with your feelings and the feelings of others. You think about emotional issues. Men think about stuff like cars, sports, projects and hobbies. So, ladies, you are so far ahead of us men, its ridiculous. Men have to first overcome denial. Women, on the other hand, often experience more abuse and pain. Thats a statistical reality. Whether its child sexual abuse or domestic violence, women often get the raw end of the deal. 

So, men, its time to get out of denial and admit your weaknesses. And women, its time to invite the Spirit to heal and empower you from deep within.

Because you’re a miracle.

      Paul Marc, you are miracle. It surely takes a lot for a man to admit weakness, but Paul was aware of his and summoned God for help.
      Some women are in denial when needing help, but i am not too proud to cry out to God for help, which I do daily with all that’s around us.
      Thanks for this touching message and may God continue to keep and richly bless you for our good and his Glory. Blessings.

      Beautiful message, it is hard for humans to be vulnerable. God tells us to humble ourselves before him being open and honest with ourselves and God allows Gods healing to flow in us and through us
