YOUR FEELINGS WILL BE HURT

DISCIPLINE

Sometimes the deepest hurts can come from the ones we love the most and is closest to us and yet is sometimes where the most valuable lessons are learnt.

One of the most challenging things in life is navigating through our hurts feelings. Hurts inflicted by others and by the self as a direct consequence of our poor choices and judgments. Yet learning the skill of manoeuvring through our emotional and psychological hurts is essential to our growth and development into whom we are ordained to be as human beings.

“Someone once said that God is not about hurting someone’s feelings. But, we need to be mindful that when we transgress, disobey, and get out of order that God will handle his business concerning us, and, I guarantee you your feelings will be hurt. When our parents “put it on” us because we were disobedient our feelings were hurt but that went along with the punishment for our actions. Our parents did not care about our little feelings when it was time to discipline us for our actions because we were disobedient. Their job was to ensure that we understood right from wrong, action and consequence. God is a God of order. He is a covenant maker and a covenant keeper. When we get out of order we should expect for our little old feelings to be hurt.” Oswald Gould Dec 6, 2012

I guess some of the big questions should be:

  1. How do we shift ourselves in the midst of the pain so that we can get the lessons embedded within?
  2. How do we begin to deconstruct it so that we understand its meaning? Because essentially there is where the true self-protection lies.
  3. How do we apply it in our lives so that when the cycle of life repeats itself that we recognize the signs and are able to choose differently thereby creating a different outcome and sidestepping the negative consequence and hurt?

  2. The mere fact that we are humans interacting with another guarantees our feelings will be hurt. I also liked with you go on to say in the rest of your post, I do believe God has a greater concern of molding us into the person he designed over our temporary feelings at a given moment

  3. I just dropped in,when I went through another post. I agree to your view points.God is there to guide us extending his helping hand.But sometimes I wonder why there is this much of demarcation between man and man, I mean some lie on the cozy bed of luxury and some on the stony bed of hardship.Anyway good post.

      Sorry for the late response.
      I too struggled with these questions having experienced my own hardships.
      I believe that the answer lies in the freedom of Free Will and Choice. As such we are subject not only to the consequences of our own choices but of the choices of others. "The sins of the father," "greed, glotony, envy, lust,jealousies" and the emotions it cultivates and actions it motivates. I know this is an over simplified explanation I trust though that you get the jist of where am going
