Surrender Your Pain

I never knew what a $5 gift card would do to me

Someone came up to me the other day and asked if I wanted to take a two-minute survey and in return, I'll get a $5 Starbucks gift card and me being the broke, tired college student that I am, I said I'll take it. We talked about healing and where I think it comes from. After that, the guy asked me if any part of my body physically hurt and if so, where. I told him that my ankle does because I sprained it a few months ago. He told me to move it until it hurt and I did then he said just to sit for a couple of seconds and not do anything. After the few seconds were over, he asked me to move my ankle again until it hurt and I couldn't find the pain. I know what you're thinking, it was a mind game and having me sit there for those few seconds made me forget about my pain but to my surprise, he told me that he had prayed for my ankle. He then proceeded to tell me about his own pain with himself and his wife and how hiding from Jesus wouldn't help as much as I'd like to think.

This conversation got me thinking. It got me thinking about my pain, all of it not just physically but spiritually and mentally and I was hurting a lot. I knew before that I was hurting a lot but I was also hiding it from God which was making it so much worse.

I am holding onto my pain because it gives me control. If I surrender it all, I don't know what's going to happen and keeping my hurt to myself at least gives me the knowledge of what's going on with it. The bad thing about this is that I'm being chained down. I am not allowing myself to grow because I won't let go. The song Peace by Josh Baldwin and Bethel Music sings "There is freedom laying all my worries at Your feet again even in my struggle I'm surrendering Your peace won't let me go." I want to able to know the freedom being sung about and know what His peace feels like.

I need to learn to stop hiding and keeping my pain from God. I need to learn that I am not alone. I need to learn that He is always with me even if He is just sitting outside waiting for me to get my crap together. I need to learn that He will never leave me and nothing is too small to Him. He is always listening. I also need to learn to listen to Him when I surrender my pain.

12 Quotes To Help You When You Hate What You See In The Mirror

Stop treating yourself like trash and embrace the beauty you are.

Girls wake up to comparisons and judgments every single day. We turn on our phones and see pictures of our versions of flawless and gorgeous. We look in the mirror and pinch our fat and gaze at our pores. We pay hundreds of dollars to try to achieve the beauty we envision and spend more money when that doesn’t work. Our lives are spent wanting this and wanting that and wishing we could be like her.

So the next time you wake up with the comparison attitude, stop and think about these quotes, and remind yourself that you were made beautiful. You were made in His image.

Let’s stop the comparison here.

1. Altogether beautiful

God specifically calls us beautiful multiple times in the Bible. He sees us as the most precious thing and I have a feeling He wouldn't like us putting ourselves down.

2. Rather be

George MacDonald put the right words together in this quote of his. What God has chosen you to be is more beautiful and spectacular than you could have ever envisioned.

3. Save me from myself.

It's true, we are our own worst enemy. God loves us and strives to protect us every day. He is there for us when we aren't even there for ourselves.

4. My worth

You are literally God's child. Your worth is found in Him, not in this earth, and certainly not in an Instagram picture.

5. One day...

One day these things won't matter. These problems and issues and the tears you've cried will all be gone. And what's left? God. He is the only constant in all of our crazy lives.

6. I didn't ask...

God made us in HIS image. We are all made uniquely and for a reason. Never doubt that. Or criticize the painter's masterpiece.

7. My Princess

A beautiful letter from God to you. In His eyes, you are His princess. He is always with you and will never leave you.

8. Crush him.

The enemy strives for us to compare ourselves and be in despair when we don't match up to the worldly expectations. He loves it when that happens, and gains power off of it. Always remember that God is always sovereign and will crush the enemy with His feet. His words are power.

9. Revive

A perfect prayer to say when you are feeling down on yourself.

10. Peace of Christ

Directly from God to you, words of wisdom right here.

11. For a purpose

God looked at the world and thought, "man, the world could really use one of (insert name here)".

12. You were made in His image.

God makes no mistakes, therefore you are beautiful and no one can tell you otherwise.

As you wake up tomorrow, remember these quotes. Print them out, write them down, sticky them all over your mirror, because the enemy will try to break you. You just must remember what YOU are to GOD.

His precious, beautiful, child.
