Pain in the Family

Chronic pain touches many more people than just the individual in pain.

Post published by Scott Dehorty MSW, LCSW-C on Apr 23, 2015 in Chronic Pain 360

"There are approximately 116 million people currently suffering from chronic pain.
No aspect of chronic pain is easy.  Feelings are real and need to be addressed.  Ignoring your emotions won’t make the issues disappear."

No aspect of chronic pain is easy.  Feelings are real and need to be addressed.  Ignoring your emotions won’t make the issues disappear, regardless of whether you are the direct recipient of the pain or a tangential family member or friend. All hurt, habits and hang ups serve an emotional purpose. When individuals are confronted with adversity, (helpless trapped feelings), that render us overwhelmed and lacking control, we can regain control. We always have a choice. We can regain control with displaced behavior, such as drugs, porn, anger, etc. or we can regain control with direct healthy, Christ driven behaviors based on a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The purpose of addiction is a behavior intended to reverse a profound, intolerable sense of helplessness. This helplessness is always rooted in something deeply important to the individual. The best healthy direct behavior is Christ Driven Behavior based on a personal relationship that empowers us with the values and virtues of Jesus Christ. When we practice these values, we find motivation and purpose, joy and competence.

Change your thinking and give God control (Romans 12:2). That control will be returned to you (John 14:16) with the resultant fruits of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23).

Nothing in this life is easy when it is done right. If you have a choice, choose a better life. Draw close to God and He will draw close to you. James 4:8.

Quick Navigation:

There is no reason why anyone with any hurt, habit, or hang up cannot be helped. The Person-God partnership simply needs to be more powerful than any hurt, habit or hangup.

Behind everything you do is a THOUGHT.

Every BEHAVIOR is motivated by a BELIEF.

Every ACTION is prompted by an ATTITUDE.

-----------------------------------------------------------

With respect to behavior, life is about, emotions, beliefs, thinking and control.

"A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back."Proverbs 29:11 (Displaced Behaviors)

"Do not be conformed by this world but instead by the renewing of your mind." Romans 12:2 (Direct Behavior)

When you think and empower yourself and surrender control to God, when you Intelligently Delegate Control to God (2 Corinthians 12:9-10),

God returns that control to you with a, “Helper," the Holy Spirit, (John 14:16) a form of Reciprocal Innervation.

You regain control: "the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.

No longer are you subject to corrupted displaced thinking but instead are transformed by the renewing of your mind (Romans 12:2).

This is where science and scripture intertwine, where Christ Driven Behavior brings, values, control, cause, character and purpose driven behavior, the fruits of the spirit Galatians 5:22-23 .

------------------------------------------------------------

Proverbs 29:11 "A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back."

Romans 12:2: Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

2 Corinthians 12-9:“My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”

John 14:16: "He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—"

Philippians 2:13: "for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure."

Galatians 5:22-23 "the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

Ephesians 4:22-23 "...put away the old person you used to be. Have nothing to do with your old sinful life. It was sinful because of being fooled into following bad desires. Let your minds and hearts be made new."

Life is about finding Purpose. When you have a, "Global Purpose," in life, healthy direct assertive thinking and behavior follow.

Change your thinking, change your life!
