God gave me a word this morning while washing the dishes. I love it when He does that. ❤️
I got a small cut under the thumbnail rim of my finger yesterday. I cleaned it. I sprayed some Neosporin. Then I placed a band-aid around.
It healed pretty well overnight!
This morning, I didn't put my pretty pink gloves on, and washed the dishes with my bare hands. Usually, that's totally fine! All I would worry about are very dry hands afterward. But, I had a wound IN THE HEALING PROCESS...
Lo and behold, my cut opened up again. And it hurts again.
As we go through life, small or big wounds develop within our hearts... and require a more complex healing process. Sometimes short, sometimes long and agonizing.
The Holy Spirit revealed the running faucet water as the action of dwelling on past hurts, and crying in despair as if the wound just happened seconds ago. In reality, it happened some time in the past. Yesterday. Last week. Last year, or over 5 years ago... Sweet friend, I know it must have really hurt.
Whatever happened to you. I want to hug you.
I pray as you're reading this, if a hurtful memory is trying to resurface,
that God's comfort and the power of His healing hand is radiating upon you.
It's okay to hurt.
It's a part of being human.
I encourage you to inhale the Father's love, and let your breath go freely,
reflecting the pain as a dandelion.
Picture the pain gently soaring upward toward the Father. Because it is. ❤️
You will find healing and refuge in Him.
Allow God in the hurt and allow Him to HEAL OR CONTINUE TO HEAL YOU...
(note to self).
Let us drench ourselves, protect and cover ourselves with His Word,
and the promises He has made to us.
• Promises of Healing and Restoration •
"Thus says the Lord, the God of your father David, “I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears; behold, I will heal you. On the third day, you shall go up to the house of the Lord." (2 Kings 20:5)
"'For I will restore you to health And I will heal you of your wounds,’ declares the Lord...'" (Jeremiah 30:17)
Don't forget those "gloves", friend.
If you do, cry a little, and then hand the hurt on over to the Father.
HE IS HEALER. ❤️
