How Do I Get Through This?

March 22, 2019

When hurtful circumstances happen in our lives we often wonder, “How will I ever get over this?”

I deeply understand that feeling. Since the release of my latest book, It’s Not Supposed to Be This Way, I’ve received hundreds of emails, direct messages on social media, and inquiries from people asking me how I got through one of the hardest seasons of my life.

Over the next few weeks on the Proverbs 31 Ministries Podcast, we’re taking a break from our regularly scheduled programming to introduce a 6-week series called Therapy & Theology: How Do I Get Through This? Our goal is to meet you in the middle of your hurt and give you biblical answers on how to move through it.

In this series, you’ll hear me dive deep into conversation with my personal, licensed professional Christian counselor Jim Cress, as well as Proverbs 31 Ministries director of theology Joel Muddamalle.

By listening, you’ll learn how to…

  • Overcome the feeling that you’ll never get over the hurt you’re facing by recognizing small steps you can take today.
  • Replace the negative stigma of “therapy” by gaining a healthy, biblical view of counseling for your situation.
  • Discover the two distinct and necessary parts of forgiveness and how to live them out.
  • Find hope in the midst of devastating circumstances by seeking restoration for yourself through prayer and proven exercises to help you process your pain.

We pray these episodes over the next six weeks will bring hope and healing into your life.

    Perfect timing for me as I’m still trying to understand this hard season I’m walking in.

    My heart was broken due to a situation where I felt I met my soulmate. And she showed me so much attention and she asked me out and then I felt that I was in love with her. But then, she told me that she was married. I ended seeing her I feel at times that I could not deal with the triggers of thinking about her. I need to completely go on with my life and move towards happiness!

    Lysa thank you for truly listening to God in your sharing of your recent story of pain. God introduced me to you through and interview Holly Furtick did with you on friendship. Again, on Elevation Estudies, and again here on your study IT WASNT SUPPOSED TO BE THIS WAY. All prior to what was about to hit me hard and knock me down. Never in a million years did I think I would be where I am at right now in confusion and pain. I lost my daughter over 18 years ago and I promise you that pain is the absolute worst pain any person on this earth will ever experience this side of HEAVEN! I truly felt in the beginning IF I survived that I would write a book. The book title is #SheAintBeenRightSince . I have attempted to write that book many times over the years. The last time was early 2013. Shortly after I began I was diagnosed with stage 3c Breast Cancer. Long story short that has consumed my life for almost 6 years! That blows my mind just saying it. So, I finally decided if I could not emotionally write the book, that MAYBE GOD could use my story through a video blog. So I have started and time will tell. But the reality is Satan did come at me strong and knocked me to my knees again, just 5 weeks ago. So thank you! I am trying to renew my strength through God, through God’s people, through His Word, and he is using you as one of those people

    WOW! I was just about to lose it when I just heard you preach at Elevation on the live rebroadcast. My husband left me and is having relationships with others. I’m SO devastated. You understand what I am going through. So many tell me to give up, its over, this is God’s answer. But then my heart and powerful messages like this give me life and hope again. Thank you for sharing, the marriage is under attack in our homes, churches, communities and our nation. God help me. Breathe life into these dry Bones Ez. 37

    I love the second chapter called dust. It’s a good reminder.

    This information is exactly what I have needed to hear.
    This is stirring up such passion in my heart.
    How can I get training or be a part of this ministry of counseling?
    I am a lay counselor at my church and we are talking about many of the same things. We have read the book Atanomy of the Soul and I’m reading the book by Brent Browbn I thought it was just me.

    Lysa, your book and podcast are getting me through the hardest season I’ve ever faced in my life. My husband blindsided me with wanting a divorce and as we are going through the steps of making this happen I found out he has started a new relationship. All I want to do is curl into a little ball and disappear. Thank you for sharing your journey.

    I have listened to the first four. Thought provoking. I am unable to step across the line to trust anyone. It has been 9 years and I still struggle daily. My mind can say what it needs to but my heart cannot go there.
