How to Handle Negative Feelings When Wronged by Someone Else

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 in the resource box..

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.
