From the University Chaplain…
Problems and pain, joy andsatisfaction are all part of every day life. Our attitude affects our desires,actions, and feelings. People can injure others and themselves in many ways.Hurt can be as extreme as physical and sexual abuse, murder, rape, theft, anddrunk driving. But it can also be as commonplace as selfishness and gossip. Inthe midst of all of this, what is our attitude?
Wecannot change our past with all its mistakes. We cannot change the fact thatpeople will act a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. But we canchange our attitude in the face of all of these situations because life is tenpercent what happens to me and ninety percent how I react to it.
Sometimeshandling life’s hurts effectively means coming to terms with an injury sufferedlong ago. We need to come to terms with our past and just get on with ourlives. It is not easy to forgive or to ask forgiveness, but it is what Goddesires for His children. Forgiveness and a positive attitude will free onefrom allowing circumstances to rule their lives. If one can enjoy and share thegood times while coping bravely and honestly with the bad, he will know peaceand wisdom and will move from hurt to healing.
Weneed to make amends for any hurt we may have caused - if appropriate. We alwaysneed to pray for strength, courage and healing and to share what we may havelearned with others. A positive attitude is imperative in which we never giveup hope or extinguish it in others. Forgive yourself and forgive others.
Throughoutthe Scriptures we find appropriate texts that support us and help us to developthe right attitude in all of these situations. The following are a fewexamples:
1. I can do all things through Him whostrengthens me (Philippians 4:13).
2. Thus says the Lord ... As a mothercomforts her child, so I will comfort you (Isaiah66:12, 13).
3. The Lord heals the brokenhearted, andbinds up their wounds (Psalm 147:2, 3).
4. Put away from you all bitterness andwrath and anger and wrangling slander, together with all malice,and be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgivingone another, as God in Christ has forgiven you (Ephesians 4:31-32).
Anancient principle reminds us that we need to look for salvation in the darkest,most painful parts of our lives. We emerge into the light not by denying ourpain, but by walking out through it. We know that God makes all things work outfor the good. This faith-filled thought of the actions of grace helps us torealize that an obviously painful experience may eventually turn into ablessing in disguise.
