    Finding God's Will

    When you make a decision, how do you know you are choosing to do the right thing? In this message, Dr. Stanley explains why we have trouble discerning God’s will and how sin affects our ability to walk in the path He has chosen for us. He also encourages us to discover the Lord’s will through reading the Word of God, praying faithfully, trusting our heavenly Father’s sovereignty over our circumstances, and listening to the wise counsel of others.

Repressed emotions help

Discussion in 'Counseling' started by kaylamint, Mar 12, 2013.

  1. When I was 13 (about 4 years ago) my father left my mother, I cried for about 15 mins and asked him not to leave but after that there was no more tears. I don't know how, but I repressed all the pain from that experience. People will be talking to me and saying "oh when my parents left I cried and cried and cried" or some one will tell me that they had to put there kid in counseling due to the divorce. I never related to that, in my mind I didn't care and it didn't affect me. But my emotions control my life, the wound my dad has inflicted on me has festered and infected every other area of my life. I struggle with anger, with fear, with emotional freak outs and I struggle with mental interrruptations of things. I struggle often with the fear of loosing everything I love, I struggle with trusting God, I struggle with hearing satans voice over Gods. So clearly this event has effected me but i don't connect emotionally with it. Not at all, my Dad in himself is a distant person, when he lived with us he always come home late. he hardly try to spend time with any of us, and now I am damn lucky to get a phone call from him at all. So honestly when he left, it was kinda the same for me, no big changes really.

    I seriously want to emotionally connect with this, I want to go back and cry it all out and get healing but I don't know how.
     
  2. Kaylamint,
    I struggle with repressed emotions as well. I am 25 years old and for all my life I struggled with unconscious anger( I had no awareness of it) because I did not feel fully accepted as a child. I have loving parents but they have their own wounds and I have always been deeply sensitive. I have struggled with being self destructive and making poor to horrific decisions for myself. I also struggled with deep unconscious shame of not thinking I was good enough, and also that my emotions were bad. Because of these unconscious emotions I struggled more than I can explain in this message. I feel you Kaylamint. I really do. It was only the beginning of this year, after reading hundreds of christian and secular counseling and self help books that I finally felt my pain. I felt it through and through. I felt the worthless feeling, and the anger. It was then I slowly started to began to heal. I am still healing so very very very slowly. Its a painful time for me but if I didn't access this wound I know the invisible cuts to my soul would have continued to bleed.
    Two books that are dear to my heart in my healing process are

    Healing the Shame that Binds You by John Bradshaw ( this is the core book that began my whole journey. It was a God sent. Period)

    Free Yourself, Be Yourself by Alan D. Wright(God knew I needed to cry. This started the purging process of my emotions)

    Books/information on the "root of rejection" will also be helpful. Joyce Meyer and many other authors and online writers have great inspiration pertaining to that wound.

    I deeply recommend these, and if you get to read them please do tell me what you think.

    God bless,

    RachelRose
     
  3. Repent. You reap what you sew. Divorce is a terrible thing to go through for children, but in my case, my father left when I was but 2. Do not rationalize your thoughts, the Devil but merely suggests you to not do what is right. He is the imitation of God's voice. God bless you. Have a voice. Look to Jesus so as to not fall to these burning sensations. Jesus knows your pain. Be mourningful. God saved you child, do not let the Devil's whispers in your ear incline you to feel bad. Take a second glance and do what you know is right. You are a vessel. God desires to embody you along with every other individual he comes in contact with. You are truly special. Envelope these thoughts to preordain for yourself everlasting life in God. Praise be to him, the almighty high, lifting us up through his glorious works. I will be praying for power in your life. Do not let this dualistic struggle withhold you from his mercy seat. He is our compassionate God of wisdom and seeks you in his kingdom. He's been looking for Adam and Eve since they hid themselves from him in the garden. Guess what... He's still looking. He's knocking. He wants you now. Conquer yourself. Sometimes we see who we are better through what we want instead of what we are.
