father.son.trouble at schoolMany of us are raised to embrace pain as our only means of obtaining love. Often in our society the only way we can experience kindness and compassion from other human beings is when we are suffering; otherwise, we are ignored. We do this often with our children. Only when they are sick do we give them special attention or when they’re in trouble do we show concern. For some children, negative attention is better than no attention at all.

Sessions in Pain pg. 178.

 The human heart is a complicated thing. This attention from pain can reinforce the seeking for pain and even the pretense or exaggeration of pain. We reject joy and happiness in our lives to receive the attention and pity from others. We choose to remain weak and dependent to experience caring from our friends and family. Beloved, God desires for your days to be strong and joyful. He will care for your heart like none other. His joy transcends circumstances. Choose Joy! “Casting all your care upon Him…”
