The Healing Process
Hey Lovebugs :-)
One of the things I've learned over the past month or so is that you cannot rush the process of healing. I've never been the type to like pain (I mean who does) but I know God will allow us to go through certain situations that are uncomfortable, unpleasant and just down right painful. We will go through things that will leave us wondering Why Lord?
I remember the Lord telling me months ago that there is no hurt that He can't heal. But it's in that process of healing that we feel the most vulnerable, sensitive and fragile. It's like our hearts just can't take one more beating. Our ears just can't hear no more bad news. Our minds just can't believe all of the craziness that's going on. Then we see or hear things that take us back to the hurt and we feel more closer to the pain than we are from it. We have to smile and hold our heads up high even though it feels like we're dying on the inside. We have to be the picture of strength when all we want is for someone to hold and console us like a child, telling us that everything will be ok and we actually believe it. But, it's during that process that we cling to God like no other. And one of the great things about God is that He hears us when we cry out to Him. He understands the pain and anguish that we experience. He offers a comforting and gentle hand to hold as we strive to make it through. He even reassure us that "weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning" (Psalm 30:5 NKJV). But I know that I've asked well Lord, how long is the night??
But how many of us know that God is SO faithful! Even when it looks like and feels like hell, He is right there in the midst of it all. We learn so much about God during the healing process which leads us to learn more about ourselves. We learn to trust that He knows what He's doing and that He's always in control!
So while going through the process of healing, know that God is right there with us. Know that He sees every tear, every hurt and every frustration. We have to let Him do a new thing in us and know that it won't happen overnight. All we have to do is trust Him, hold on and give Him the tiny pieces of our hearts that's been broken so He can mend it... or in some cases, He'll give us an entirely new one!
