Ok, so your probably thinking ‘wait there usually encouraging people, to share their story and talk about their pain’
The devil uses our imperfections and our past mistakes, to convince us that we should avoid the pain at all cost.
The pain is how uncomfortable we get when we expose our wounds. He doesn’t want any of us to do that, because he knows bringing things out of the dark, means their exposed to vulnerability and to the light.
Their no longer hidden and you and I have the opportunity, to clean the house. Forgiveness of self is a very powerful thing, but that never happens when we put paddocks on our pain.
What’s really going on is the devil is trying to convince people, that they aren’t worth the conversations that could save their life. He convinces people that alcohol is a great tool, for numbing the pain, drugs are great because they help you avoid how you really feel. Tricking thing is, once everything wear’s off, you realise the emptiness you felt was only temporarily filled.
Everyone’s different and not everyone finds it essy to open up, yet I can tell you from experience if you never try, you never will. Freedom requires us to have a voice, it requires us to talk about our pain and share our story.
I’m one of them, but I’ve met many people who have briefly mentioned how they’d spent most of their life, chasing different things, while admitting they were honesty avoiding the vulnerability.
It’s uncomfortable and believe me, you really have to committ to your decision, before you even try.
The devil hates people who open up, he’d rather us shut our mouth, stay silent and just say nothing. Do the opposite, do something different, acknowledge the wounds and they’ll start to heal.
You might feel like a punching bag, and the devils been reminding you of all the stuff you use to do, your past and everything.
Switch it up, put on the gloves and start throwing punches, let him feel how you’ve felt.
It’s your LIFE, not his, it’s your STORY, not his, it’s your HOPE, not his.
Much love, Shaun
