Let Go Of Hurts

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Psalm 46:1
Take it from one who has been there, done that, got the tee shirt so to speak, when someone has hurt you don't waste time dwelling on it. That my friend would be Satan's wish for you to keep dragging an issue into the ground. It is necessary to forget the  past and forge ahead. Stop nursing pain and hurt and get beyond it to victory!
Some types of hurts may require professional Christian counseling to deal with, so by all means, depending on your issue, do not neglect to go talk it out and get help if necessary. But if we are talking about a friend who has hurt you, your choice is to talk to God in prayer. Begging someone only drives a wedge and keeps them away from you. Get involved in someone else's life or find a place you can volunteer to help others such as a shelter,  hospital, nursing home and go beyond yourself.
The time may come in your life when you realize the hard thing you had to endure worked together for the good like it says in Romans 8:28. Get on your knees and pray for God to release you from being tormented by those who hold your emotions captive. You can not move forward if you constantly look over your shoulder and wonder what you could do to make something better.
PRAYER: I choose this day to let go of emotions or hurts that have a grip on me. I know they are from the enemy so this day I choose to look beyond the past. In Jesus' name. Amen.
