As she was sharing her frustration, she couldn’t help but blurt out, “Why must I always be the one to change?”
Thanks for joining us for Wednesday’s Word with Kim-Evinda and Trench Classes United where she writes from her heart with the hope of speaking to yours.
As soon as the words left her mouth, they both laughed out loud, not laughing at her but the truth that hung in the air from those pent-up words now set free.
As soon as those words were spoken, a light went on for her and the release of them worked like a plug now unplugged, helping her to plug into all that her new Spirit-filled mentor and accountability partner spoke into her and over her.
The story of their lives held several similarities, except her current season, but all that Karen shared was relevant for any season.
As Karen spoke, she was reminded that no one, not even Satan himself or his minions, could take her faith, her peace, or her spiritual well-being from her unless she allowed it! While that truth stung, it also worked like a salve, binding up the holes from the fiery darts the enemy and his minions had been hitting her heart and her back with for the past two-plus years. “The enemy can only exploit what’s already there,” Karen said. She knew immediately what needed to go: all the fears that accompanied the trauma.
As they closed their time in prayer, the vision given to her absolutely took her breath away while healing her soul. It was of Jesus Himself, bending down and picking up all the pieces. It wasn’t until the next day that she remembered the verse found in Psalm 147:3 that confirmed the vision: “He heals the broken-hearted and binds up their wounds.”
Friend, if you have any sort of hole in your heart, or your back, inflicted upon you by another, one that you feel you’ve forgiven but you just can’t forget, I pray you press into the Only one who can bring true healing. To look for any other source of healing is worse than trying to find a needle in a never-ending haystack!
