Can frustration heal you?
What causes frustration?
What could be the end result of frustration?
“For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God.” – Romans 8:20-21
YES!! Frustration can and will heal you IF you listen to it!
Frustration is caused when like a hamster on a wheel we feel like we are going in circles and not growing. The law does this and it does a very good job of it!
In fact the law was created for one very special purpose- to make you frustrated! So frustrated and so overwhelmed that you would turn to the “end of the law”- Jesus Christ!
The end of “bondage to decay” is in the “freedom and glory” that is in being a child of God. The more you depend on Him the less frustration you have. The more you “try” to do it on your own and follow a rule book- the greater your frustration will grow.
Is there frustration after becoming a child of God?
Yes for me there has been but I have found that the frustration can be linked to my unwillingness to Let Go and Let God!
God is not now or will He ever be impressed by your effort and ability- only by your desire to be a child, sit at His feet and rest in His never ending Grace and Love!
Next time you are getting frustrated try this. Take a moment to breathe deeply in a place and at a time where you probably won’t be disturbed. With each exhale relax a little more, particularly your jaw and shoulders. When you feel a bit more relaxed go back to normal breathing and:
Breathe in and say:
“God grant me”
Breathe out and say:
“Rest in You alone”
Practice this any time you get frustrated and carry the knowledge with you that Jesus IS the reason that frustration shines the light to Peace that passes ALL understanding.
