For many of us, healing seems far out of reach..whether it is mental, physical, or spiritual healing needed.
The extent of the damage can be overwhelming and our needs appear innumerable. I’d like to suggest, however, that perhaps the “answer” is not so far away. Perhaps it is not as complicated as it seems to be.
Yes, there may be several elements that need to be in place in order to heal and what you need will most likely look different than the next person. But it all boils down to this – what I like to refer to as the “ABC’s of healing”:
A – Acknowledge the pain
B – Bring the pain to GOD and
C – take small steps to Carry on
A: Pain loses some of its power once you acknowledge it. Recognize that yes, “it” hurt you deeply. But also choose to walk, out of it. This helps you regain power over the pain.
B: Bringing the pain to GOD is the safest, most effective way to put pain in perspective. GOD is most certainly bigger than any painful situation and it is HE who has the answers to health and healing.
C: Although it is very possible to experience a complete healing at once, for many of us, it is something we may have to walk out. Be patient with yourself by taking small steps to carry on. Remember, small steps will lead to big progress.
Don’t get bogged down by assuming your healing journey will be as difficult as the pains you’ve endured in life.
Sometimes all it takes is a few tweaks, determination, and choosing to walk in the right direction.
Be encouraged, friends.
Shalom to you,
