Denisha: [00:00:00] When you think of the word suffering, what do you think of? Maybe you [00:00:05] think of pain, loss, or trauma. There are so many ways [00:00:10] that suffering can enter our lives, and we've all experienced suffering at [00:00:15] some point. In this episode, we will talk about the presence of suffering [00:00:20] in our lives and courageous ways forward.

Welcome to this episode [00:00:25] with Susan Haubegger. Welcome to living the reclaim life podcast. [00:00:30] I'm Denisha. We're glad you're here for conversations that revive hope, inspire [00:00:35]healing, and encourage you to live a vibrant life with Christ. So grab a cup of [00:00:40] coffee as we chat with today's guest.[00:00:45]

Welcome back to living the reclaimed life. Last week, [00:00:50] Susan Habegger and I had a fun conversation, sharing some of the behind the [00:00:55] scenes of her week here with us in Tucson, Arizona, we had a [00:01:00] training, we had a conference. And one of the things that we keep hearing is [00:01:05] how do we hear more of Susan? So we want to share a little bit more [00:01:10]today of maybe some things that Susan shared at the conference and maybe some [00:01:15] extra things as well.

So we're going to tackle that today and give you a little bit [00:01:20] more of. Susan's experience and thoughts on the presence of suffering in our [00:01:25] lives. So Susan, if you don't mind, just in case this is the first time that [00:01:30] someone's caught you on the podcast, I'd love to read your bio. Okay. [00:01:35] So Susan Haubegger has lived and worked internationally for 30 years.

[00:01:40] Her heart was drawn early to those who must find a way forward in the midst of [00:01:45]difficult circumstances. And in 2010, she founded a humanitarian [00:01:50] nonprofit thrive life skills with a vision to come alongside and [00:01:55] walk in the suffering in order to provide hope and help them discover a courageous [00:02:00] and peaceful way forward.

God has brought clarity and reality to this vision through [00:02:05] personal experience and circumstances. And so Susan spends most of her time [00:02:10] writing, traveling, teaching, and she is happiest. And I can attest to this because [00:02:15] we saw this in the seven, six days we had to hear that you are happiest when [00:02:20] you're creatively engaging with others to discover courageous ways forward in [00:02:25] spiritual, emotional, and work life.

So in case this is your first [00:02:30] introduction to Susan, I want to encourage you to go back and listen to our last. Two [00:02:35] podcasts, uh, where we got to dive in a little more of who is Susan and how did the Lord [00:02:40] direct her to where she is right now? So today, as we [00:02:45] come together, I would love for you, Susan, to lead us into a [00:02:50] conversation about the presence of suffering in our lives.

Susan: Is that an [00:02:55] inviting way to start a podcast? Some of you have joined and you're like, Oh, [00:03:00] this is gonna be so encouraging. And then the first thing we say is, let's talk about [00:03:05] suffering. We have this strange. [00:03:10] Sort of relationship with our idea of suffering. I think in that we, [00:03:15] we know it's there. We know that we're [00:03:20] not going to go through this life unscathed by suffering.[00:03:25]

However, a great bit of our life is [00:03:30] spent attempting to avoid it. In some way and [00:03:35]when if or when it happens to us are [00:03:40] also guttural response is to find a way to [00:03:45]escape it as quickly as possible, because I think many of [00:03:50] us view our journey through life [00:03:55] in one particular way. One pathway forward. And when [00:04:00] suffering trauma, a crisis event, [00:04:05] a new awareness of what has been happening in our lives, when that [00:04:10] comes to us.

Then somehow we envision that [00:04:15] as a separate path over a parallel to our [00:04:20] real life, maybe even at a right angle that we go off on that and [00:04:25] somehow now everything is dependent on completing that and getting [00:04:30] back on. The path that was really intended for us. And [00:04:35] even though we might not come out and give those words and say those [00:04:40]words, the way that the actions that we take the things that we tell [00:04:45] ourselves, the things that we tell other people.

reveal that is how we [00:04:50] are looking at it. And so in some way, when [00:04:55] suffering hits, the idea of survival kicks in. [00:05:00] And one of our first attempts at survival is to [00:05:05] undo Whatever has happened, undo the change. Now, this is a really good [00:05:10] thing if we've touched the stove and it's hot and we feel pain and we [00:05:15] to undo what's happening.

It's a gift to us to have feeling in our hands [00:05:20] and pull back from that and protect ourselves. But [00:05:25] when we are living life and things are happening, moments of pain, [00:05:30]moments of. Betrayal moments of personal crises or [00:05:35] even natural disaster. And maybe it's happening to us, or maybe it's [00:05:40] happening to someone that we love dearly.

But in some way, this cloud, [00:05:45] this idea of suffering is there. Our first attempt at survival is [00:05:50] to undo that change. We desperately want to get back to the place [00:05:55] where everything was, or at least we thought it was, [00:06:00] all right. Because now in that moment of [00:06:05] suffering, the previous seems like it was a better place to be.

We imagine [00:06:10] that we must have been safe, or safer in that, in that before [00:06:15] place. And so the truth is that we try to scramble. And put things back, [00:06:20] put life back together the way it was. And the reality [00:06:25] is that from that moment of crisis or [00:06:30] awareness of coming to grips with something in our lives, we [00:06:35] are engaged in what we would call resolution.

And [00:06:40] resolution is that process of attempting to solve a problem. And [00:06:45] I really believe that is something. It's part of the way we're created in the image of [00:06:50] God. If there's any solver of problems and someone knowing [00:06:55] how to bring things to a good conclusion, it is Him. And He [00:07:00] has put that, a little bit of that inside us.

And to resolve [00:07:05] something is to come to peace with it. And so, this. [00:07:10] response that we have to come to peace with it. But [00:07:15] then we have to think about the idea of, are we truly coming to peace with it? [00:07:20] Or are we simply surrendering and giving in to defeat? [00:07:25]And so here we are in this new relationship with suffering.

Here [00:07:30] we are. It's not a Part of a story we're reading about and we can cry our [00:07:35]tears and close the book or close the newspaper or turn off the television. [00:07:40] Now it is our life and here we are in the midst of this response and we find ourselves in a [00:07:45] very difficult place at that moment in time. That was 

Denisha: such a great point.

[00:07:50] When we see something hard on the television, we can turn it off. We can turn the [00:07:55] channel, but when it is our life, we have to sit in it. We have to walk that [00:08:00] out. And yet I know my first response is exactly what you said. It's a [00:08:05] scramble to resolution. How quickly can I change that channel and get off of [00:08:10] that topic?

Because that's too hard. So coming to [00:08:15] peace with our suffering. Kind of reminds me of that a [00:08:20] rug. This is what I did. My whole life is every time suffering intern. I picked up the [00:08:25] rug into my room and, you know, metaphorically shoved whatever I was suffering with [00:08:30] underneath that rug and that worked great for me.

Until it didn't. [00:08:35] And about my late thirties, early forties, I found myself tripping over [00:08:40] this huge hump in the middle of the rug. And that looked like maybe patterns, [00:08:45]behavior patterns I was doing. It looked like triggers that life was throwing at me [00:08:50] that I had not resolved and come to peace with that original event.

I began [00:08:55] tripping over that rug and that It took courage to begin to [00:09:00] lift up that rug and start to reconcile some of those moments of suffering. [00:09:05] So I can really relate to just how quick can I turn that channel? How quick can I move [00:09:10] on from that? So I know that shoving it under the rug is not a [00:09:15] healthy way to respond to suffering.

I know that now, [00:09:20] and I have to catch myself. To not continue to do that, but is there a [00:09:25] healthy way to respond to suffering in our lives? I believe there 

Susan: is and [00:09:30] I think that's why you and I are both doing what we are doing because [00:09:35] we do believe that there is a way forward and there's a way forward of courage and[00:09:40] with peace and this idea of just putting it aside and moving [00:09:45] on is not always a good idea and there will be people who tell us [00:09:50] that you just need to get over it.

You need to put it aside. This is what [00:09:55] happened. You need to Put it in a box, put it under the bed, put it under the rug, whatever [00:10:00] you do and continue on with the story. And maybe there's even [00:10:05] an urgency for that as we think about others, other people in our [00:10:10]lives, that it will be easier for those people.

If [00:10:15] we do present the face of being okay of being [00:10:20] resolved to the situation, we don't want others to be concerned for us. And [00:10:25] so the result is that we run quickly towards [00:10:30] resolution and do not allow ourselves to feel the suffering. [00:10:35] We have talked about this idea of an unhealthy way of looking at [00:10:40] suffering as being similar to what you might do with a physical problem.

You're walking [00:10:45] along and somehow you cut your leg and you're in a [00:10:50] situation where this would be an inconvenience to others and an inconvenience to yourself. to [00:10:55] your life and the way that it's going. And so you put a bandage on it. You [00:11:00] continue to wear something that will cover it. And after some time, the [00:11:05] infection has set in.

And now other parts of our bodies are suffering from [00:11:10] this infection. And if I go to receive medical help, [00:11:15] the information that I will receive or the advice I will receive is In order [00:11:20] to help the other parts of your body that are now hurting from this [00:11:25] injury, we're going to have to open up the original wound and cleanse it.

[00:11:30] And that is often true for our suffering as well. [00:11:35] And I know there may be some people who would say, No, [00:11:40] this is not a good thing. We should keep our focus on the good and on the [00:11:45] positive and on the beauty. And we want to bring that into our lives. But it [00:11:50] is important for us to remove the poisonous.

[00:11:55] infection that settled in the beginning of that suffering and is [00:12:00] now branching out from the original wound. And so in a healthy way of [00:12:05] dealing with suffering, we are actually going to go back and look at it [00:12:10] clearly and deal with some of the. [00:12:15] branches of infection that it has put off into our lives. The [00:12:20] idea of actually engaging with suffering or investing in suffering [00:12:25] might not seem like a good thing.

It's like turn this podcast off right now because that's [00:12:30] exactly what I'm trying to do is getting away from the suffering. But I [00:12:35] would encourage you that there is a way forward that [00:12:40] begins with embracing. The suffering there is a way forward [00:12:45] that discovers it to look at suffering without. [00:12:50] Attaching that immediate need for [00:12:55] resolution that it's a good thing because we're results [00:13:00] intended in this part of the world.

We like quick results. We [00:13:05] want things to be done well and easily and for the change to be [00:13:10] made quickly. When I want something fixed, I want it fixed now, but we're not a [00:13:15]coffee pot. And so the pain that has been Growing inside of [00:13:20] us has been growing perhaps for days and months and years. [00:13:25] And so that pain that is there [00:13:30] is crying out for attention.

And we are [00:13:35] the best person to give that attention to ourselves. [00:13:40] We are the best person to look at [00:13:45] it and to hear its cries and to understand the [00:13:50] loss. that has taken place because of this suffering. In [00:13:55] most suffering, I don't like to say every or all, but [00:14:00] in the high majority of suffering, there is some kind of loss that [00:14:05] has taken place.

And it's very important for us to [00:14:10] look at that loss, to comprehend it. Sometimes we're not [00:14:15] even aware of All of the layers of loss that have taken [00:14:20] place. We might look at the very obvious. Suppose my [00:14:25] house burns down. The very obvious is I've lost my house and everyone [00:14:30] looks at me and categorizes me. Oh my goodness, Susan has lost her [00:14:35] house.

We need to help her. And so things are replaced, things are replaced, [00:14:40] put back together. And as soon as they and I can see myself in [00:14:45] a home and I have all the essentials that I need for carrying on life. [00:14:50] Ah, good. The loss has been fixed. We're all done. There are [00:14:55]layers of loss that have not been brought to the surface, things [00:15:00] that need my attention as I discover how I'm dealing [00:15:05] with the loss that is even so much greater than those [00:15:10]material things.

So it's important for us to discover and become aware of [00:15:15] the loss, and that's a whole process. And for us to [00:15:20] acknowledge it and mourn that loss. And so a healthy [00:15:25]way of responding to suffering is to [00:15:30] take the time that pain is demanding or [00:15:35]wanting from us. It's like I had, I have three [00:15:40] daughters and one of them when she was young and she would be talking to [00:15:45] me and maybe I wasn't paying the best attention that I should have.

[00:15:50] She would take her face and turn it towards her and she'd say, look at me, [00:15:55]mommy, look at me. And I think there are ways that some of our [00:16:00] pain. Some of our hurts are actually [00:16:05] attempting to turn our own faces and say, look at me. [00:16:10] I want your attention. And maybe if we give that [00:16:15] attention to ourselves, it will not [00:16:20] demand so much attention.

From others [00:16:25] and from other ways that we might be attempting to cover it over and [00:16:30] so as hard as difficult as it is a healthy [00:16:35] relationship to suffering involves us looking at the suffering, [00:16:40] being comfortable and becoming familiar with the [00:16:45] ways that harmful effects of suffering. The effects that [00:16:50] they may cause in our life, so that we recognize those and are able to deal [00:16:55] with them.

So it is, I guess I would say, a healthy way through suffering is becoming [00:17:00] familiar with it on a number of levels, and that takes some courage, [00:17:05] but it also yields [00:17:10] real fruit and real strength as we move forward in that. Those are 

Denisha: [00:17:15] such good Tips, and I think things that resonate in our heart as we [00:17:20] hear it, even if we not don't necessarily are like, Oh, I'm so excited to [00:17:25] jump on that journey.

Susan: Yes. 

Denisha: Are there principles or [00:17:30] truths that can be foundational for us on this journey. [00:17:35] I think 

Susan: so. And we, there's so much to talk about. And so when [00:17:40] I share these things, they sound like a list of steps and they're not. There are no, [00:17:45] there's no list of steps towards healing. It's a journey and we spend longer in [00:17:50] some areas than we do in others.

I think one of the things to [00:17:55] remember, if you are A person who [00:18:00] comes from a spiritual perspective and if God is a part of your [00:18:05] life and you think of him as a part of your healing is to [00:18:10] have a good healthy understanding of that as well. There [00:18:15] are times that we might put that in a list of steps. So we think [00:18:20] in that journey of suffering, it must be very clear cut.

[00:18:25] So will you suffer? I tell you, you can trust Jesus, [00:18:30] and then you get forward, and it all sounds right, and really, you know, pragmatically, [00:18:35] or maybe truthfully it is, but [00:18:40] pragmatically, there's a lot more that's interwoven in that, and so, if you were to look [00:18:45] of a at a visual of what those [00:18:50] steps were, say that there, we have four of them say that we have suffering and [00:18:55] we have an emotional response and we have trust Jesus and we [00:19:00] have get forward and we want to put all those together in a perfect package.

Well, for [00:19:05] many of us, maybe we've even experienced this in some studies. That it [00:19:10] seems like a series of steps that we share our suffering, and then we give an [00:19:15]emotional response, and then we trust Jesus, and then we move forward. But I would propose [00:19:20] to you that it is more like a four corded piece of yarn [00:19:25] that's all woven together.

And at any point in time, [00:19:30] along that piece of cording, there is suffering, there is [00:19:35]emotional response, there's trusting Jesus. And there's getting forward [00:19:40] and they're all touching each other and all a part of [00:19:45] that journey, because I fear that if we just make it a [00:19:50] series of steps, the reality will eventually set [00:19:55] in, because we will find ourselves.

once again suffering, [00:20:00] we will find ourselves having an emotional response that we did not plan [00:20:05] for. And then we'll think, well, where is Jesus? What happened? I thought I trusted him. [00:20:10] So if we come at it in the beginning, from a perspective [00:20:15] that it's all woven together. And at that moment, when I'm suffering right, bumped up [00:20:20] against me is Jesus.

And when I'm having that emotional response, There I am, and in the [00:20:25] process of it all, I'm beginning to move forward. So I [00:20:30] would leave with you three in particular principles or [00:20:35] truths, and these are all another lesson. Okay? Each one of them could be its [00:20:40]own podcast. But the first one is that you have a trustworthy and [00:20:45] safe traveling companion, and he is intertwined with you [00:20:50] on that journey.

He is trustworthy. He is [00:20:55] safe. Not everyone feels safe after you have experienced suffering [00:21:00] and he is the one. He is your creator. He's [00:21:05] unchanging. He's truthful. He holds all things together. And I love in this [00:21:10] situation to call him the I am because he is the one who [00:21:15] has responded to me when I say. I [00:21:20] can trust no one.

There is no one that can be on this journey with [00:21:25] me that I feel safe about. Back in the Book of Exodus, [00:21:30] Moses was in that place of sharing with the people who had been, [00:21:35]they had been abused, they had lost their hope, they were. Didn't weren't sure [00:21:40] anyone was hearing their cries for help and he's supposed to go and tell them That this [00:21:45] God is going to help them and he says who should I say is coming and God says I [00:21:50] am So he is our I am he's a trustworthy and safe traveling [00:21:55] companion And then I also would say to you that [00:22:00] you have not been consumed Your suffering is part of your [00:22:05] story, but it's not your identity.

You have [00:22:10] not been consumed by this event, this awareness, this [00:22:15] betrayal, whatever it might be. It might feel like it. But you [00:22:20] have not been consumed. It is a part of your story and will always be there. We [00:22:25] should never try to erase it. We will never try to write it out of your story, [00:22:30] but it is not your identity.

And then the third one is there is [00:22:35] beauty and purpose interwoven in your suffering. There is [00:22:40] beauty and purpose interwoven in your suffering. [00:22:45] Many things may feel wasted or spoiled [00:22:50] or tainted or ruined. However, [00:22:55] God does a wonderful job [00:23:00]at redeeming things in a way that we have [00:23:05] never expected. To redeem is to regain possession of something, [00:23:10] to replace a negative with a positive.

Positive or a blessing and never [00:23:15] in any of this time, are we trying to outweigh we're never trying to [00:23:20] somehow weigh the balance and the good so that it outweighs what happened to us. [00:23:25] That's not a part of this picture. We are simply retraining [00:23:30] ourselves to see good. and to see blessing because oftentimes it's [00:23:35] very difficult to see it and to let that back into our lives.[00:23:40]

So through the years, God has redeemed various things in my life. Maybe it's a time [00:23:45] of year, a season or a song or a, [00:23:50] A piece of clothing, even good things that are scarred, but [00:23:55] he has a way of redeeming those things for us and helping us to see [00:24:00] that in that tapestry, there is beauty and purpose that is [00:24:05] woven into our suffering as we embrace the [00:24:10] suffering, because truly the beauty in that tapestry would [00:24:15] not be as brilliant and as profound [00:24:20] without the suffering that's interwoven.

And oh my, everything [00:24:25] within me goes against that. But I know that from experience, that if [00:24:30] I only had the beauty, it wouldn't be as lovely. And so [00:24:35] it is interwoven. So those three truths can help us. They can almost [00:24:40] tether us sometimes when we feel like we are floating away and that none of this [00:24:45] makes sense.

And I hope that those can help you as [00:24:50] well. And that we will have times when we can discuss it more together. And I think that would be a [00:24:55] lovely place for you to be a part of the life groups, because they will be [00:25:00] talking about all of these things in detail and so much more as you [00:25:05] move through this journey and this new relationship with suffering.

This is 

Denisha: kind of so [00:25:10] helpful. There's so many little tidbits there that you're right. We could camp on for a whole [00:25:15] nother episode. Thank you so much for your experience, for your [00:25:20] wisdom, for taking the gifts and the understanding that God has given [00:25:25] you and sharing it with the world. It makes a huge difference.

And like you [00:25:30] said, we could definitely talk about each of those and hopefully we will in the future. [00:25:35] All of this is a little nugget from Susan's course, a new [00:25:40] song, and that is what we're going to be using through our life groups is a new [00:25:45] song course, and we're doing it as a 12 session journey, [00:25:50] because as you can see, Susan can say one sentence and you think I could [00:25:55] unpack that for the next six days, let alone a couple of chapters of full of this [00:26:00] information and knowledge.

And so as we do that, we're going to be doing [00:26:05] 12 sessions biweekly, so it's going to be 24 weeks total to give [00:26:10] everyone a lot of time to kind of chew on the material that you've provided us and then [00:26:15] come together in that safe place that we can share with one another and do this [00:26:20] journey together. Not alone.

It's so important to have not only is the Lord with [00:26:25] us as our traveling companion, as I am, but we would also love [00:26:30] to come alongside and sit with you as you go and walk through many of the things that [00:26:35] Susan has touched on today. So Susan, thank you so much. We [00:26:40] appreciate you. And I know you could give us so much more, but we're going to save some of that for the [00:26:45] future.

So Susan, how can we find you? [00:26:50]
