healing will come……

November 12, 2012

Just the other day, I was sharing with some friends how much I’ve experience the steadfast love of God this past year, as I’ve walked through whats been the darkest season of my life.

I shared how, through this trial, God has given me a peace that passes all understanding, and a trust in Him that is unwavering. At the same time, He has given me hope—hope that He will be faithful to get me through this season, just as he has in seasons past.

As I shared these things with my friends, I was very aware of the struggle going on within me as I talked.

You see, I realized that though I’ve gained precious knowledge of my Lord and have grown in my love for him as I’ve walked through the fire, I have yet to heal.

The hurt inside of me is still very real and very raw — an open wound that’s taking a long time to heal.

I’m still easily moved to tears by all that’s happened–and continues to happen– and I long to know a joy that’s a normal part of my everyday life.

In church yesterday morning, someone shared this portion of Scripture from 1 Corinthians 4:16-18 ~

16 So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day.

17 For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison,

18 as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.


What an awesome reminder that our afflictions are preparing us for an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison!

Knowing that doesn’t dull the pain of what we’re walking through, but it sure does offer us hope, doesn’t it?

As I had my time with the Lord this morning, I was listening the the song, The Lord Is, and I was struck by this line,

You have shown Your faithfulness again and again

There’s nothing good that You will not provide

I felt as if the Lord used that verse to assure me that he desires to give me good things, which tells me that he will indeed bring healing — in His time.
