Emotional Healing!

If you have experienced any kind of personality change, agitation, apathy, and hopelessness over the past few months you might be suffering from emotional pain syndrome (EPS). Let’s face it, in times like this it’s easy to experience all the symptoms listed above! Psychotherapy, counseling programs, treatment centers, psychiatric hospitals, antidepressant drugs, recovery support groups, and self-help books are often the go to solutions to help mitigate some of the pain. However, my Rx prescription for you and myself today is a simple reminder that God can heal any damaged emotion we carry in our lives. Psalm 34:18 declares, “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Let’s be clear: I absolutely believe some people suffering from damaged emotions need to get professional help. Oftentimes, though, they try to deal with the symptoms listed above, but fall short of facing the source of their pain. Fact is, God goes straight to the heart of the problem with a one dose prescription but you have to make an intentional and cognitive decision to ignore your feeling and take the medicine He prescribed for you!! My suggestion; SURRENDER IT ALL AT THE FOOT OF THE CROSS!! Proverbs 3:4-5 reminds us to, “Trust in the LORD with all your heart; and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” Now, before I close this short devotional, I want to be clear that some emotional scars need the attention of professionals. But never forget, God created your emotions, your personality, your heart, and your story (Psalm 139:16). So, choose to trust God today and never forget He is closer than you realize, and He is wiling and able to heal you from any form of emotional pain!
