1. How does pain become the thief in our today and the curse of our future?

When we don't address our pain, we become consumed with trying to maintain and make it through the day.  Pain won't allow you to live outside the confines of feeling like you need to protect yourself from being hurt.  It steals time away because you stay in a defensive mode, constantly battling with unstable emotions, and you never grow and develop into who you are suppose to be. Although you know know that there is more to you than where you currently are, your pain won't allow you to progress, instead you become more resistant to change, because of fear of the unknown.

2. How does pain become the shoplifter of our life, preventing wholeness and stability?  Pain is a thief of progression it won't allow you to move past the hurt from people.  It ruins your relationships with people because it causes you to feel constantly slighted and mistreated.  It rob's you of joy, peace, and patience.  You may become intolerant and sensitive to people and you turn people away out of fear of loss.

3. Why do we experience so much pain in our lives?  Pain produces character in us, it teaches us how to endure overcome.  Life is a journey, you find meaning and purpose through overcoming opposition and pain. Pain breeds compassion for someone that may be experiencing what you survived, helping them to discover their own strength.  The bigger picture of our lives unfolds out of our weaknesses.

How does processing become Momentum?  Processing takes the limits off of your mental storage, it frees up space in your emotions, helping you to move forward in a healthy relationship or get out of a negative one.  The more you process the more you are able to make progress in your life because you are not confined by fear.  It allows you to accomplish what you would have been afraid to do because of fear of failure, self awareness, or sabotage.

5. Why do I need to know where I parked my pain?  Attempting to live your life without identifying hindrances keep you stagnant.  It allows for minimal growth, meaning although you may experience progress, not dealing with your pain won't allow you to enjoy your life, you will continuous find the what's wrong within a good situation.  Pain doesn't allow peace, therefore you will live in torment of feeling like nothing is good enough


I will not be a victim of my past.  I will not allow the torment of my yesterday keep me from the joy of my future.  I am an overcomer, I learn the lessons of my battles and I won't repeat them.  I am growing in knowledge wisdom and understanding, making sure that I never fall victim to defeat.


My father in heaven, your name is great and mighty, establish your joy within my life and cultivate within me wholeness of soul.  Forgive me for allowing my past to define me, but today I choose the life within your word that assures me of a new life in you.  May I be guided into truth and total freedom, In Jesus Name, Amen!

Don't let your problems stop your purpose, Your pain has a purpose.
