Part Two: Escaping your Emotional prison

This is a continuation…  On part one I asked, “what thoughts dominate your thinking?” If we were to ask someone who has been laying in bed with emotional and physical distress what started their emotional pain; more than likely at first no answer would come to their thinking… Yet if we wait and give them the opportunity to think back, they would take us back to last week, then last month, then a year ago and even as far back as their childhood. ( Most people in this type of pain hold hurts from their past.) They become historical in a sense. This means, they can recall every rude comment, hurtful conversation, look, tone of voice, verbal and physical mistreatment and possibly even recall the season of the year it happened in.

Without realizing they have conditioned or trained their brain to ponder on negative, hurtful things… It’s not that they want to keep reliving hurt or pain but rather they seek answers as to why this happened to them or what they did to deserve such hostility or neglect.  This will cause the person to either be critical of themselves or of others. Simply, because years of hurt, pain and lack of understanding conditioned their brain to ponder on negative.  (If all they had to think upon was negative then nothing positive was put in it’s place to overpower the negativity.) How does one feel good about themselves when all they can see is their flaws and the flaws of others? How long will they be stuck in an emotional prison that keeps them bound in chains of pain? ( As long as they keep their focus solely on themselves. Meaning, what was done to them and how it makes them feel. They unknowingly are allowing the devil to use their mind as his playground.)

It is so important to place truth in our thoughts. We need to remember that when Jesus died on the cross for our sins, all authority was given to him in Heaven and on Earth. (Mathew 28:18) This means, if you are a believer, the devil holds no authority over you because the Lord gave us power over him. We are told to resist the devil and he will flee. (James 4 :7) If you are entertaining thoughts that go against the Word of God then you are not resisting the devil but rather are entertaining him as you struggle and suffer in emotional pain that creates the physical pain you hold as well. None of us can go back and change what others said or did to us but we can forgive them; which releases us from the pain carried. Some of you are bound in pain by the actions of others. You may have sought approval, love, sensitivity, recognition or a number of things that they never offered you. Did it ever occur to you, they may not have held what you wanted from them?Meaning, we can’t offer what we don’t hold… ( Maybe the people who hurt you were hurting people themselves. They simply offered what they held which was pain.)

Let’s go a step further:  Are you holding pain but no longer speak to those who caused it due to dissolved relationships or possibly due to them not being alive any longer?  In that case, how will they have the opportunity to make right if you no longer speak or if they are no longer living?  You can’t… You have to forgive them for yourself to be released from pain. this means, let them answer to God for what they said or did, as you no longer concern yourself with pain they caused. Place that pain in the Lord’s hands for him to deal with them as he sees fit; while you no longer have to concern yourself with business you handed over to the Lord and made His business… If you place that pain in the Lord’s hands then this alleviates you from carrying it any longer. The Lord is ready to take when  you are ready to give…

If you are hurt by someone, tell the Lord. If you were done wrong, crushed in spirit and mind, feel lost, neglected, abandoned, disrespected, unloved, unwanted, distraught, in conflict, under severe temptations, sick in need of healing, miserable in your marriage or friendships, or hold any upset whatsoever… tell the Lord. When you tell him, leave that upset with him as he’s the one who holds all authority in Heaven and on Earth. Ask forgiveness where you have wronged others or the Lord himself… Psalms 103:12 reminds us that as far as the east is from the west our sins have been removed from us. This means, quit feeling guilty, shame, or sorrow for something you repented of that the Lord removed far from you.

Give the Lord your guilt, shame, sorrow, anger, pain, and all the hurts said or done to you. You don’t have to carry your sins or the sins of others any longer. You may find that you spend a great deal of time in prayer giving the Lord all the upset you have carried, but remember if you gave it to him you no longer are the carrier. It is out of your hands which means if the thought pops into your thinking; don’t entertain a thought that put you down in the first place… Instead, resist the devil and he will flee. Those thoughts keep you tormented. your torment keeps the devil entertained. Jesus died on the cross to take away your sins and pain. He freed you on that cross.

If you are bound by chains of pain from your past or even your present, then you are trying to hold onto something you desperately want control over… What you may fail to realize is the Lord knew and knows what happened or what will happen beforehand. He went to work on your behalf and also sent his angels to fight for you. So each time you try to control the outcome of what you feel at the moment; you are preventing the help you could have received. The Lord won’t push his help on you; no you have to want it. That’s your right with holding the free will he gave you. This means he will let you do things your way but when you are ready to give he is more than ready to take…

If you are in an emotional prison of pain, offer up each upset you hold until there is no more upset to offer. Don’t take back, what you gave away. Stop focusing on yourself and what you feel. Half of what you routinely feel are just attacks or assaults on the mind sent from the devil and his fallen angels….   With that being said,  ” Back To Hell Demons! My Lord Holds All Authority In Heaven And On Earth! He Also Holds Legions Upon Legions Of  Good Angels Who Are Going To Tear You Up For Messing With Me!!!  ( That Is The Mentality you need to hold my friends…)

Part One: What thoughts dominate your thinking?

Sometimes we unknowingly are controlled by the thoughts we think upon. Proverbs 23:7 Reminds us that the way we think is how we are. With that being said, may I ask “How are you?” To answer that question accurately, you must stop and recognize what you have allowed your thoughts to be on… If your thoughts have been all over the place and primarily on negative things, then you may not be in a good place emotionally right now or for awhile.  This means that if negative thoughts dominate your thinking, then negative emotions are flooding you as well. ( Negative thoughts, trigger negative emotions. Negative emotions trigger negative words or actions.)

Let’s take this a step further: Did you know that each time your mind has a negative thoughts, toxins are released into the brain? Over time these toxins can actually cause brain damage.

Anytime negativity dominates our thoughts, we also can experience physical ailments. (Migraines, fatigue, physical pain in the body, tense muscles, irritable bowels, chest pains and possibly restricted breathing, insomnia etc.)  We also experience the emotional stress factors associated with negative thoughts. ( Anxiety, fear, crying, doubt, worry, sorrow, loneliness, panic, confusion, etc.)

It is fair to ask, is it the negative thoughts that caused all these complications or the toxins released in the brain?  (Both) It is overwhelming the amount of damage caused by toxins in the brain that prevented dopamine ( our well being neuro- hormone)  from being released. This prevented the well being of a person;  leaving them with even more negative thinking due to how bad they felt emotionally and physically. The worse they feel, the worse the thoughts get, the more the toxins are released in the brain causing damage.

What do you think the outcome of this will look like? I assure you not good at all… The person experiencing this struggle will have it long term and will miss out on living life because most of their time will be spent trying to feel better. Either they will sleep their days away, or hold every distraction in hopes something will make them feel better. This is not to say they won’t try to self- medicate, because often times they do. They often are thrown into what I call panic mode, which means they react off of what they feel at the moment which can lead them down a destructive path. Instead of living, they become stuck in their shell, simply existing… They sink deeper into a depressive state of mind experiencing a comfortless and lonesome life.  They are miserable in every area of their life. They forfeit trying because they have felt defeated at every turn.  If they are not careful they can take on a victim mentality, which only keeps them wrapped up longer; focused on themselves and their pain. This means they see no way out of the emotional prison their mind got them into and may also blame others for the situation they are in… To make matters worse, they begin seeing relationships dissolve either in their marriage, with co-workers or friendships. This only intensifies their loneliness, doubt and fears. Their self value is questioned while each moment of their day is dreaded. Hope escapes them as dread floods them… Deuteronomy  31:6 Reminds us not to dread or fear but unfortunately not all of us succeed at that. In fact dread begins overpowering us when we reach that low point. Dread for being around certain people for fear of them seeing us that way. Dread doing things simply because all interest has been lost. Once interest is lost, escaping from our prison seems impossible…

One reason people become so complacent and do nothing about their situation is because they believe the thoughts they have focused on to be truths;  instead of seeing them as the lies they are. You read that correctly… The Lord holds purpose for each and everyone of us believers. Who better to interrupt our well being than the enemy himself?   John 10:10 reminds us that the thief comes to steal, kill and destroy.  The thief is the devil. Did he steal part of your life by killing your hopes and dreams; while destroying any opportunity that was sent in your direction? Did he use people you trusted to harm you emotionally or physically?
