Good evening, friends. It touches my heart that you come by and leave encouragement. I have really enjoyed participating in Kate Motaung’s #FiveMinuteFriday writing prompts! This week our word is “heal.”
“God, I thought I was too far gone. Too far gone for you to mess with. For you to care. I laid on that bathroom floor so many times, the tears wetted my chest as you bottled each one up. At the time I wasn’t thinking about the bottles. About each and every tear that never slipped passed your ever loving eyes.
At the time I was consumed with doubt, fear, worry. Thinking this is who I am, that I should never get my hopes up -to be used in some special way in life, because how could I if I was this messed up myself?
How could ever even fathom helping another out of their junk if I couldn’t make it out of my own. But you showed me that junk wasn’t mine to bear alone, and you wanted to replace the junk and then use the junk.
You showed me another way. You have been patient and this year has brought much healing from years of pain and torment that I battled alone with.
You are healing me and have brought me to a group of people who I can trust and who I see you in. I see you. I do. I am filled and overflowing with joy and great expectancy of what marvelous things await.
Many may go to and fro in this life, thinking they can do it on their own, but I have learned I can not -without you, Father. I don’t want to.”
“But as for me, I get as close to him as I can! I have chosen him and I will tell everyone about the wonderful ways he rescues me.” Psalms 73:28 TLB
