Are You Stuck At The Point Of Your Pain?

Hey y’all! Hope you had a great week last week. Ours was busy but in a good way. I had lots of homework, test, small group stuff, house to clean which is somehow a mess again🙈😐 We met our new foster grands. They are simply precious, just melt your heart💗💙

Recently, I’ve been thinking about how often our brokenness can keep us stuck at the place of our pain. The place where our pain first began. I’m only speaking for myself but I personally have struggled with this at times. Maybe you have too?

I’m so thankful at how God has brought me through so many dark places in my life and I’m seeing victory and freedom and then there are still some areas where I’m not there….YET. It’s that thorn of the flesh so to speak. But, it continues to draw me closer to God and that is a great thing.

I may not be there YET and you might not be there YET….but we are not where we use to be and that’s news worth shouting! 🙌🏻🙌🏻 Freedom is there for the taking we just have to continue to walk it out, walk through some things…..let go of some things, to get to what’s already been placed INSIDE OF US. He’s already placed everything we need on the inside of us. Isn’t that awesome?!?!

For me, the brokenness I’m referring to in my life is from someone who hurt me years ago but sometimes the wound can still be so fresh. Different sounds, smells, situations can bring that memory flooding back to me and each time I have choose to forgive. See forgiveness isn’t a feeling, because if I’m honest in the past I’ve been like “Lord get em, drop large boulder and some hot coals on them, make them suffer like they’ve hurt me.” Now I know that’s not Christian like but that’s the hurt and human side of me and it’s just me being real. But my God says to forgive and forgiveness is a choice and one we have to continue to make over and over again. I’ve found eventually over time, and it might take a long time but our feelings will catch up and that person, that event, or situation won’t feel the same anymore.

Circling back to the getting stuck at the point of our pain I spoke of at the beginning. See I’ve been there and it’s a dark place. But sometimes when your stuck there you need someone to come to where your at, sit with you, hold you, and cry with you. There’s healing in those tears. There’s healing when a friend or loved one comes to that dark place your at and their willing to be with you and lift you up. It might even be the person that made you get stuck at the point of your pain. What a beautiful thing I think that is but sometimes it’s not. Sometimes it’s a friend/loved one you’ve confided in or its Jesus….our Savior. He comes to our rescue if you call on Him.

He loved me at my darkest. He came to the pit I was in and called me out. He took off my grave clothes and He gave me a new name. He’ll do the same for you too.

See when I felt unworthy and unlovable, He told me He loved me with an everlasting love.

When I felt ugly and unwanted, He called me cherished, beautiful and accepted.

When I felt shame and guilt for what had been done to me, He told me I have been redeemed and set free. I am a new creature in Christ. I am chosen, holy and blameless before God. I am Gods masterpiece, the apple of His eye.

Maybe you need to hear that today. You are beautiful, treasured, cherished, fearfully and wonderfully made, precious in His sight. You are loved with an everlasting love and nothing you can do can separate you from the love of God. YOU….precious one are chosen, holy, and dearly loved! THAT IS WHO YOU ARE! Make no mistake.

God bless you! Have a blessed and wonderful week. If I can pray for somehow please let me know, I’d be honored to do so.

When my eyes cannot see it’s your voice that’s leading me, out of darkness into light. It’s your love breaking through the night I won’t move until you soeak….You Break the walls apart. You heal the wounded heart, I won’t move until you speak. You calm the raging sea. You crush the enemy. I won’t move until you speak💗

Big hugs,

Nicole💗

  1. This is beautifully written and so needed! Thank you for sharing your experiences with us. There is a blessing in our pressing❤🖤 This has definitely encouraged me to keep pressing through the pain of grief 🙏

  2. Thank you 🙏🏽 my friend for this very encouraging post. Indeed just a few weeks a go,I found myself reviewing my ‘forgiveness’ of someone’s offense against me. This person feel sick and I was not willing to pray for their healing. But God… two very precious words, that remind me of my very powerful God. Thank for being real

  3. First of all, I’m so sorry you had to go through that point of darkness in your life. I, too, was hurt deeply by someone I thought I loved emotionally, mentally, and physically. I know exactly what you mean about triggers because I went through many years constantly looking over my shoulder. Certain places or smells still bring up memories to this day and it’s been almost 20 years!

    This post is such a great reminder that God is with us no matter what we’re going through. That’s the only thing that has kept me out of the pit.
    I’m keeping you in my prayers!! Thank you for these comforting verses!!

    1. Thank you. A lot of people don’t understand what you mean so it’s nice when someone does. Im sorry you were hurt so deeply.

      So thankful for such a Good Good Father who loves us where we are at and will swoop down to get us. He’s so good. Thank you for your prayers sweet friend. Praying for you as well. Big hugs💗🙏🏻

  4. Congratulations on the foster grands. I bet they’re adorable! I’m sure there will be many many days ahead where they light your heart up with PURE joy!

    Nicole, my my my, YOU are such a powerful blessing! This is an amazing post filled with such love, tenderness and honesty. I am so sorry you had to suffer at the hands of someone who did not have your best interests at heart. Hurt people hurt people and that damage is lasting, until we work through it at the feet of Jesus. You are 100% right, it is a journey and it isn’t an easy one always. Sometimes we think certain pain points are gone, only to have them resurface at very inconvenient times. Still, our Lord is so very patient, wooing us in with His love and healing balm. Nothing is too hard for HIM! I pray that each and every day His healing power flows through your veins more powerfully than the last. That every hurtful memory, every smell, every sensation, everything traumatic be covered and removed by the blood of Jesus Christ! 🙏🏼

    I understand your journey and your pain. A good 25 years or more of my life was spent in endless pain, rejection, abandonment, abuse, torment and emotional harassment. It shaped the fabric of who I was. I believed every lie. I took the pain on as my own, convincing myself that I deserved to be unloved, unwanted and unheard. “I must not be good enough for anyone,” I’d say to myself. This went on for many many years. Still today, after all this time, I still have to work through some triggers. BUT GOD! Oh His faithfulness…I’d not be here today if not for Him. I wanted many many times to end the suffering. But He had a plan and still does. For YOU and for me.

    I thank God for you, your heart, your ministry. You are so very loved and appreciated. You are an inspirational voice for which I am grateful to have met here in the online world. 🙂 GOD BLESS YOU and those you love sister Nicole! 🙏🏼

    1. Yes, they just left my house. I got all the snuggles and little Ryland feel asleep in my arms tonight….melt my heart❤️
      God is so faithful!

      I totally understand what your saying. I believed all the lies too, and yes today I can still go there but at least the times are shorter and realize it much quicker🙏🏻🙌🏻 The devil is a LIAR!!

      Thank you so much, you truly blessed and encouraged me so much today sweet friend. God bless you and thank you for sharing your heart. Big hugs💗🙏🏻
