At what point do we stop running from ourselves
When does love become worth fighting for more than the need to feel justified
Why do we absolutely refuse to bend while at the same time expecting someone else to bend for us
Why are we willing to work so hard on the outside while leaving the inside to wither – our spirit, our soul – the part that matters more than anything
When will we stop dying on the hills that were placed there to lead us home
We can all ask these questions of ourselves
Evil laughs at our unwillingness to face pain in order to be free
It fails to tell us feelings buried alive don’t die
It fails to tell us a million lies to ourselves will never equal truth
It fails to tell us what we are most afraid of exposing is where our shackles are
The lies are that we are worthless, we are broken beyond repair, we are not enough, we are not lovable, we are not special, we are a mistake
The truth is what sets us free – that we are loved, we are precious, we are unique, we are created with purpose ~ and we are forgiven & cleansed the moment we confess our darkness & ask for redemption
That’s when real healing begins, where new life is born.
Grace. Mercy. Love. Forgiveness.
Jesus paid the highest price.
It was enough to right all of the wrongs done to us & all of the things we’ve done wrong.
God help us to believe it. To walk in it & to extend it to others.
Your Love is the answer.
