Have you ever noticed that when you’re going through a difficult time & would like nothing more than to avoid a certain topic, you see it or hear it everywhere?
I’m going through that right now. There seems to be an epidemic of people who, unintentionally, are constantly throwing this particular issue in my face. They don’t mean anything by it – mostly because none of them even know what I’m struggling with – but it’s still hurtful.
How do you handle that? I can’t hide in our house & avoid life until this season has passed. I can’t be mat at people who are just sharing their own lives with me. How can we balance happiness for others while acknowledging that our own feelings are appropriate and perfectly ok?
Are these reminders about God’s good plans for our future, or are they painful little attacks from the enemy? What happens when that line blurs, and you can’t figure out what the truth is?
How do you move through a season when you have more questions than answers?
I don’t know all the answers, or any, maybe but I get what you’re saying.
This may be totally different than you, but right now there is a situation that my entire church and community has so much compassion and love for and I feel awful because I don’t have that compassion. Or at least as much as they do. I’m not completely gaga over the situation and when I don’t show as much compassion or love as others I feel like people are judging me.
I don’t think it’s the same thing as you, but I will say, whether they are attacks from Satan or encouragement from God…you have a choice in which way you see them. REFUSE to see them as attacks from Satan and instead acknowledge that God, You remind us that you are GOD and you are good. And have a hope and future for us.
I don’t know, this may not help at all. Maybe it will though. 🙁
