Today is my mother’s birthday. One of the greatest things she has taught us is that life is going to beat us up – but it is our choice if we will allow the hits to turn us into a victim or a victor.
We are all wounded aren’t we?
We all need healing.
If our bodies took a hit each time our heart took one we would walk around looking like the ‘Walking Dead’s’ zombies. Not a pretty sight.
DearOne, there comes a time in our lives that we choose whether to be bitter … or not. We decide if we will let the Radical Healer in to do His thing – use our pain to grow us … or not.
Here is the deal: living through events that light up rage in us causes gifts to arise in us that we never knew existed. Notice your pain as something that has to happen Sweetheart. It is not easy. But, it is right.
Allow the Healer to do work there. Recognize it. Bless it. Contain it. Receive healing.
With all that is within you.
‘(He) who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion, (Psalm 103:3, 4 NIV)
