#FiveMinuteFriday: Heal~

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.”

 

Here goes..heal3.jpg

“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.”

Stop.

“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

  1. Thank you for sharing your story of God’s faithfulness and goodness in your life. I am so thankful that His love never fails! I am your nearish FMF neighbor.

  2. This is so beautiful. What a loving, compassionate and powerful God we serve. I’ve so enjoyed witnessing what God has been doing in your life, Meg, even in the short time I’ve been following your journey. BTW absolutely love your new look here…the colors, the header and name: excited to see where God will take you next.

    1. Thank you, Anna dear! You are such a blessing and I hope to catch up at your place too. My hubby surprised me tonight by showing up early at home so we were catching up on family time. I am so thankful to have you on this journey with me, each soul matters. Blessings to you and yours!!!

      1. Don’t ever worry about keeping up! Family should always come first: good on you for having your priorities in order. May God bless you and your family richly this weekend.

  3. Meg, this is such a beautiful prayer from your heart! Thank you for being willing to share the hard stuff and be vulnerable with God, and with all of us. It’s such an encouragement! Have a Blessed Weekend!

    1. Thank you, Bettie ~ there is no real way of moving forward without acknowledging how He carried me through some crazy messes. I am grateful to be able to share and grateful to have friends who care. Blessings to you, friend!!

  4. So I ran into that verse about God holding and catching all our tears in a bottle just this week in my Bible Study. The Bible study is about having God’s peace among stressful situations. When we can come to God as our capable, loving, and attentive Father, it is easier to see Him work in our lives as He heals us. Very encouraging thank you #6

    1. Oh that’s neat, Kristina! I shared this very verse with a friend whose husband is on hospice right now. She wasn’t in church most of her life as some of us and she had never heard of it before. I was so thankful God gave me something to give her for comfort. Thanks for sharing this with me and I pray your bible study continues to be blessed!
