An Open Letter To Those Steeped In Self Pity

An open letter to all those steeped in self-pity today. I was there a long time ago. I have compassion but I have learned……

Self pity helps nothing. NOT ONE THING! Feelings are not reliable FAITH is an act of our will.

When we get into self pity we do not realize that there are many other people experiencing the same things. The difference is some go forward each day, trusting God to make it able for us to withstand what we see as the injustices of the world.

We falsely believe our lives are worse then everyone else’s life. Maybe they are and maybe they are not.

The more time we spend in self-pity the worse our situation will become. We come into agreement with Satan and he loves that.

Even if it’s true that your situation is bad you can turn the tables by finding something positive and talking about that.

You may be lying in bed steeped in self-pity writing about your sad situation on FB but YOU HAVE A BED WITH A ROOF OVER YOUR HEAD AND OBVIOUSLY A WAY TO GET ONLINE. THATS A BLESSING FOCUS ON THAT!

I do life coaching and so do a lot of other people. If you find yourself so steeped in self pity you cannot become unstuck find a Christian life coach to give you a hand up.

Truth be known you have the power to do it all yourself. You simply have to want it to change.

I am going to be honest. Self pity is an attention getting device.

No one can change your life but you. When you make that decision God meets you right there and helps you. You come into agreement with God whose Word tells us in Philippians 4:13 “ I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!”

Right now you are agreeing with Satan whom the Word tells us has come to steal, kill and destroy.

John 10:10 The thief comes not but that he may steal, and kill, and destroy: I am come that they might have life, and might have [it] abundantly.

The body cooperates with the words that we speak. Please quit speaking death over your life, self pitier. You are your own worse enemy.

In Gods Unconditional Love,

Painful Pasts And Addictions

If you don’t get the infection out of a wound it never completely heals.

If we keep using alcohol, drugs, sex, food or love Addiction to escape the pain, that we are afraid to face, we never heal completely.

There might be a temporary healing, it might form a scab of sorts but if infection is still present, even a tiny bit, it will fester and cause us trouble and pain over and over again.

It takes a conscious effort on our parts to find out exactly what the root of our pain is. It takes getting in and staying in the Word of God. It takes sincere heartfelt prayer asking God to show us the place where depression and emotional pain took root in our spirits. Once we understand where that place of pain originated we can then face it and get it out of our life.

We have to make peace with all the parts of our lives. No ones life is perfect. Bad things may have happened but Praise God they are over now! We made it through them.

Constantly dwelling on past hurtful memories will cause us to stay stuck in a place where we don’t move forward because we are still concentrated on the past.

In order to move forward we have to face the bad memories and look at them fully. We then say, “Past you no longer have a hold on me. What happened, happened. I see it, but I let it go because it no longer defines my life. The Word of God says I am a NEW creation.”

2 Corinthians 5:17 New International Version (NIV)

17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come:[a] The old has gone, the new is here!

You, beloved, have the power through Christ, Jesus, to overcome you past and to quit letting it have any control over your current life. When the hurtful thoughts come you choose to dismiss them with thoughts, instead, of the wonderful future God has planned for you.

The choice is YOURS. You no longer have to keep letting the past infect today or tomorrow. Let the wound be healed. Look forward now to the glorious future that can be yours. You know the past was a dark, unhappy place of defeat. Why do you choose to keep visiting it?

I feel impressed to say to you today that some of you are your own worst enemies. You must make a choice daily to walk in abundant new life. You must make a choice to be committed totally to putting the old behind you and daily doing what it takes to get you to your promised land.

If any of your addictions really helped you would not be feeling bad now. There is a big difference between numbing pain and healing pain. God wants you to know TODAY is your day to walk free from Addiction. Today is the day you and God find the strength to move on. You are the only one that can change things. Make up your mind to walk into your glorious future. Tell God you are ready to put the hurt and pain behind! As you do so door after door will miraculously open in front of you!

Compassion

When a person has such intimate knowledge of how you are hurting and what you are going through it’s because they too have experienced pain. Emotionally and/or physically.

Compassion is only learned from having been there too, in one way or another.

When I read something written by someone who can relate so well with hurting people I know they have intimate knowledge of pain.

Jesus had a human experience on this earth so, while in a suit of flesh, He could experience human emotions.
