The more I write about healing, the less I feel I know about it. So much of it seems clearer when you find yourself on the other side of it.
I still feel very much in the middle, so it remains a mystery to me.
Right now, I’m trying to listen… and to believe others who have been to the hard places and come out on the other side.
I love these words from Presten Gillham: “Worry and fear are simply the belief that I have gotten myself into a place where God is not. And so that brings us to the truth, that God, through his determination to share his heart with me, was willing to go to my ungracious place to be with me.”
The belief that I have gotten myself in a place where God is not.
I can’t help but think of these words from Psalm 139: “Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or Where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend to heaven, You are there; If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea, even there Your hand will lead me, and Your right hand will lay hold of me.”
Thank you Lord that there is no place so ungracious You cannot overpower it with your more than sufficient grace. Meet us now Lord. Please.
Give us grace.
