Suffering Can Be A Learning Process Podcast
Why Do We Suffer?
There are different kinds of suffering, there are emotional, physical and mental suffering. We all go through some form of suffering in our life and I’m sure that in a lifetime we all experience all three of these. The pain from these three can be minor and short lasting, while in other ways it can last a lifetime or have devastating affects.
Sometimes we are the cause of our own sufferings, like they say, “We can be a glutton for punishment.” In some cases we allow ourselves to let it enter into us and then it goes to work on us. It’s how we see things and this is how we let it affect us.
If we let things bother us, then chances are stress will follow or depression. Fear can make us an emotional wreck and it will drive people to commit suicide or be admitted into a mental institution.
Suffering is something that we can learn to live with by coming to terms with it. Most of the time with the exception of physical pain we can think things through and get rid of the cause of our distress.
We need to find ways to stop ourselves from becoming prey to the happenings in our daily lives that cause us to experience mental and emotional pain and anguish. Controlling our thought process will help us to have a peaceful mind and the thoughts won’t stir up any bad emotions.
Physical suffering can be a little more difficult to deal with if we can’t take anything for the pain. Some people are more tolerant to it than others but it is something that we have to learn to deal with.
Spiritual suffering can probably be the hardest to deal with. The suffering that I have experienced I cannot find the words to describe it. It is a whole different kind of suffering, but in the end, waiting for us is everlasting eternal peace where there is no more pain and sorrow.
No matter which one it is, everyone suffers differently. One may feel a lot of pain just getting a paper cut while others just blow it off. No one can know what a person goes through when they lose a loved one.
The grief that people go through cannot be measured or felt by another. Emotional distress usually can be measured by the way a person acts or how far they have withdrawn themselves.
When it comes to suffering it is always nice to have someone there to comfort you. The Lord our God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit know how bad we are suffering and they can provide us with the comfort that we need. Next time you are feeling bad, ask them to give you comfort.
May God Bless You Always
