Unpacking Your Pain: Complete Healing through Lamentations
by Shelli Virtue
Your Path Towards Complete Healing
Pain – we’ve all experienced it in one form or another – physical, mental, emotional, social, relational. Each person has a unique way of dealing with pain. Some spend a lot of time whining and complaining about it. Others put a smile on their face, but we can tell they’re dealing with a lot. Then, there are those we think never deal with pain because they hide it or avoid dealing with it.
We will be using Lamentations as a guideline for completely working through our pain. The book of Lamentations is written in an acrostic form through the Hebrew alphabet. This form is used to express the completeness of walking through pain. It starts at the beginning of the Hebrew alphabet and expresses sorrow with each section beginning with words corresponding with each sequential letter.
You will get out of this study what you are willing to put into it! The more you get down on paper, the more you’ll be able to process pain and create a clear plan moving forward in hope for healing. This study works through our pain from nearly every perspective we can imagine. We will dig deep!
