Created to Feel

When the hurt gets overwhelming and when the betrayal stings, it seems easier to let your heart go hard. A numb heart is a hard heart. A hard heart seems like a better choice than a hurt heart but Proverbs tells us that, “A tenderhearted person lives a blessed life; a hardhearted person lives a hard life.” (28:14 MSG)

You are created to fully live your life which means you created to fully feel your life. You are created to feel. Jesus felt every moment of His earthy life and didn’t repress His emotion. Our world teaches us to repress, deny and stuff emotions. However, all this does is store the unprocessed emotions until they unintentionally come out in harmful ways. You are created to feel your life – the good, the bad, the joy, the sorrow and all the moments in-between as it happens.

Fight for a life fully lived. Don’t succumb to the temptation to become brittle and bitter. Don’t stay stuck there, dwelling on what happened or what should have happened – don’t let that shape your future. Feel the pain that comes and process it. Grieve what you have lost all the way through to acceptance so you can live after it.
Stay tender-hearted, my friend. Don’t let life (or other people’s choices) rob you from living in full color.
