Today's Daily Encounter
Draining the Pain of Hurt Feelings

Job, the great sufferer in the Bible said, "Even now
my witness is in heaven. My advocate is there on high.
My friends scorn me, but I pour out my tears to God."1
A Daily Encounter reader who has been hurt deeply
asks, "Do you have any insight into dealing with the
strong emotions that arise from being deeply hurt and
wounded?
Dear Fred (not his real name), one way you can help
"drain the pain" of hurt feelings is to write out your
feelings. David did this in several of his Psalms. I
think he was a man after God's own heart--not because
of his behavior--but because of his being open and
honest with himself and with God. When you write,
write as if you are writing a letter to the one who
hurt you. Express all your feelings in all their
intensity to this person. Then read the letter to God
telling him that this is exactly the way you feel (he
knows it anyhow)--then tear up the letter and destroy
it. Write again and again doing the same thing until
all your hurt and angry feelings are dissipated. But
never, never, never send one of these letters to
anybody. At a later time, should you feel a need to
write or contact the person in question, remember
always to write and speak the truth in love--never in
blaming anger.
God also gave us tears to help drain the pain of hurt
feelings. So give yourself permission to weep with all
your heart. The fact is, until we have learned to weep
with all our heart, we are not free to love with all
our heart. Tears, however, are for expressing grief …
not anger. Anger needs to be expressed in writing,
verbalized, or both.
Also, everyone needs at least one person he/she can
trust implicitly with whom to share his/her feelings.
It needs to be an understanding and caring person, who
listens and accepts us with all our hurt and angry
feelings, but won't give us advice, preach at us, or
tell us what we should or shouldn't do or feel. And,
if necessary, have several sessions with a qualified
Christian counselor to help you work through and
resolve your feelings.
And of course be sure to tell God exactly how you feel
and to lead you to the help you need to resolve your
hurt and angry feelings so you can get to a point of
genuine forgiveness. Failing to forgive will only hurt
you. It's "like drinking poison and waiting for the
other person to die."

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, thank you that you always
understand what I am feeling and will always accept me
when I openly and honestly confess and share my
feelings with you no matter what those feelings are.
Help me always to be honest with myself and with you
and please help me find a faithful friend with whom I
can feel safe to be open and honest--a friend who will
always love and accept me no matter how I feel. Thank
you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully,
in Jesus' name, amen."
