Whenever we face a personal or relational problem, our first instinct is to run. Couples bury their emotions until they flare up later. People deny their true feelings until they begin to interfere with their day-to-day lives. However, in order to alleviate the discomfort, you have to address it, even if it means feeling pain in the process.
Run toward your problems not away from them. Move toward the source of the conflict, not away from it. This takes discernment and the right kind of tools. If you are having trouble in your relationship, it takes wisdom and the right kind of resources to help you find resolution. In order to deal with grief or depression, it takes the right kind of support to deal with your emotions so you can find healing. This might include counseling, journaling, prayer, depending on close friends, or reading books that addresses your problem. Most importantly, it takes the presence of God who brings redemption in the midst of devastation. If you run away, you may be able to postpone or ignore the issue temporarily, but it will eventually find you. Resolution is only found by dealing with the problem head on. With God’s help you can do it.
