Hello everyone! It is good to be with you today. I am thankful that you are taking time to spend with me in thoughts of the word of God. Today, I want to speak about how powerful, healing, and transformative Love is when we need to be restored no matter what we are going through in life.
Life brings with it circumstances, decisions, challenges, and conditions that we need to face. The decisions to them can bring outcomes that can either be positive or detrimental to us. Both will have a domino effect that will impact the rest of our lives. Wisdom is critical to ensure the outcome will be advantageous.
Have you had a difficult decision that you later deeply regretted but could not alter it? The feeling of responsibility haunts you day and night. You blame yourself although you may not say it out loud. It brings about sorrow, grief, and anger that can impact everything within and around you.
Pain is a sounding alarm that makes one’s awareness that something is not right. An immediate need of attention is required to alleviate it. In the body, it will signal the location that needs to be evaluated and requires a speedy response to alleviate the condition. When ignored, it will worsen and spread to other parts and infect its environment.
It is imperative to pay attention to the signs and quickly seek help. But what about pain in your heart and spirit? What do you do then? Internal review is necessary to determine the root cause of the matter. You must peel the layers surrounding the heart and the spirit to expose the truth. Once you have exposed it, proper treatment can begin for inner healing can take place.
While this process is taking place, the uncovering of the cause of pain will bring everything that needs to be expelled out. It may not be pretty or easy, however, for total recovery, it must be done. You will not be alone in the process. You will need dedicated individuals around you willing to help. They will be known by their patience, care, and love to see you whole.
Why will they be willing to help you in the process? What is their benefit in the result for other’s recovery? It is because they have been through the same process and understand the worth of it. The Holy Spirit uncovers the root of the pain while the Word of God is the medicine that combats the infection. Both compassion and love are the ointment and gauze that covers the wound from the elements trying to impact the treatment. Love seals the healing!
Let today be a day that you allow Love to heal your heart and spirit. Then you will be willing to do the same for others!
“Above all, have fervent and unfailing love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins (it overlooks unkindness and unselfishly seeks the best for others).” 1 Peter 4:8
