Bottled Emotions day 4 ~
What is bottled emotions? It can be anything that has happened in our life, that has caused us pain or discomfort, that we have Not delt with.
If this is You; Please don't be so hard on yourself, It's a normal reaction for us all to flee pain or discomfort. Nevertheless, We all need to go through the pain and discomfort to bring healing. When we carry a backpack full of bottled up emotions, that we haven't delt with- a series of unhealthy emotions can store up inside of us. There will come a time- when we don't have the room to put one more thing in our backpack..
FOR MOST ~ IT WILL COME OUT AT A TIME~ YOU LEAST EXPECT IT.
The journey of grief often starts with shock and disbelief. And the sadness can become overwhelming at times. We must not bottle our grief and sadness but seek God for strength, healing, and understanding.
The God of the universe hears your cries and knows your pain and He cares deeply for you.
Pray in thanksgiving for His care for your deepest hurt and anguish. Pray for rest and comfort and that others would come along to support you through this journey. Pray for those who bring heartache and calamity- and that you can assertively set healthy boundaries to protect yourself through this journey...
Confide in that one person who completely gets you. Who is understanding and non-judgmental.
Come back for more on this tomorrow..
