How to Handle Negative Feelings When Wronged by Someone Else

By | May 5, 2017

How does a Christian really handle negative feelings and emotions when

they start to set in as a result of being wronged by others – especially

if the wrong has been vicious and nasty?

The Bible tells us that God is asking all of His people to live on a

higher level than the nonbeliever. The Bible tells us to forgive those

who trespass against us, to turn the other cheek when warranted, to love

our enemies and to do good to those who deliberately hurt us. God is so

insistent on us being able to forgive those who hurt us – that He tells

us that He will not even hear our prayers if we are holding any

unforgiveness towards others who have wronged us

However, we all know, through real life experiences, that this is easier

said than done. How do you really handle negative feelings such as

anger, bitterness, the desire to seek revenge and sometimes outright

hate toward someone else who has viciously wronged you?

How do you handle and get a grip on these types of negative feelings when:

  • Some drunk driver has just killed your spouse, son or daughter.
  • Someone has raped or sexually abused you.
  • Someone has abducted and killed your son or daughter such as some of
    the cases that we are seeing in the news.
  • Your husband has been physically and/or verbally abusing you for
    years.
  • You have just found out that your spouse has been cheating on you.

All of the above scenarios are torpedo shots that can knock most us to

the ground. However, how we handle these adversities and how we bounce

back from them will determine the quality of what time we still have

left here on this earth.

If you do not get a grip on these negative emotions when they start to

try and settle on the inside of you as a result of taking one of these

kind of vicious hits – then those negative feelings and emotions will

start to eat you up alive on the inside – much the same way that cancer

can ravage and tear apart a human body.

Some Christians will start to even lose their faith in God. They get mad

at God – wondering why God would allow something this bad to come their

way.

If you would like some good insight from God’s perspective on exactly

how a Christian can handle this kind of vicious shot and keep on living

this life the way that God wants you to live it – go to the link below

This article will give you a good “one-two punch” answer from God’s

perspective and all of the appropriate Scripture verses to back up this

keen insight. The Bible says that the truth will set you free – but you

have to know what that truth is and be willing to work with that truth

before it can really set you free. The Bible says that we are

transformed by the renewing of our minds. For many Christians, their

minds are bound up with “wrong thinking” – and they are thus being

held down from being able to live this life to their fullest potential

in God.
