Did you recently lose a job or a loved one? Are you experiencing difficulties along your pathway to recovery? Whatever you are experiencing at this current moment, you are not alone. Yes, the choices that are made, whether you invoked them or they presented themselves to you, God is with you. There is a reason why you are experiencing this choice. Many of us may ask God “why me”? Instead, ask yourself what can I do for Him with what’s been presented.
To mask your emotions with distractions (alcohol, drugs, work, sex, etc) would be a disservice to Him. We are human, we all experience a range of emotions. Get comfortable with the uncomfortable. What that means is simply this: Feel your feelings… allow yourself to be humble and acknowledge that you are human. As humans, we need to break down at times to build ourselves up. Use God to assist you during these times. He will never leave you.
When we actually feel our emotions, we are then available to listen to our inner hearts and what God has presented to us: a gift. He gives us strength to overcome, keep us moving forward and to follow what He truly wants us to do.
