The moment God wants to officially heal you from your hurt.
God can’t heal you when you try to act as if there is no hurt present. This is the easiest way that we can delay our own healing process, because it is not enough for God to want to see us flourish and move on, but we must also want that for ourselves as well. I can recall one day in particular that I had just came home from church and honestly, I felt so uncomfortable and emotional the entire day to the point where I didn’t know what was going on. I figured it was God trying to get me to release the hurt that I had experienced a few months prior, but the pride in me did not want to ‘fess up and admit that I was sincerely hurt. So, I did like most people and tried to carry on with my everyday activities and act as if everything was fine, but God was ready for me to release my tears and allow Him to help me heal from what my ex-boyfriend had done to me. I will never forget the moment that I had gone to put some things away in my closet, and I just began to cry uncontrollably. It didn’t matter how many times I tried to stop; my tears refused to cooperate. It was like God was saying to me “Now is your time to stop faking like what he did didn’t hurt you and let it out.” I remember when I would have flashbacks of what my ex-boyfriend did (who we will call James for the time being) and I would have a “it is what it is" attitude towards the matter. In reality I didn’t believe this at all and somewhere in my heart, bitterness was trying to grow inside of me, which is a tactic that the devil will use to help cover up a person’s true emotions. He figures, that if you become bitter enough, then you won’t be strong enough to ask for healing from God, in order to move on with your life and be who HE has called you be. Truth is I was hurt, angry, mad, etc. all in one and I needed proper healing from the Lord. The only issue was that I wasn’t ready to admit all of that just quite yet, but God knew that in order for me to effectively move on, I had to be honest with Him as well as myself. I realized that if we go through life acting as if the hurtful things that people have done to us had little to no effect, then we set ourselves up for a false reality that will continue to make us bitter and mad at the people around us. I don’t know about you all, but I can’t allow to give someone that type of power over my life. At the end of the day we all have a choice that if we want to do better, we have to make some serious changes. The first change is to acknowledge that someone has hurt you, next, pray to God and allow him to heal you.
Always remember that you are Blooming for Christ, so in this season you must be willing to allow God to help heal your hurt!
