Healing is Like Peeling an Onion

Do you want to be completely free of past hurts?

Healing is like peeling an onion.

I have found that my healing is like peeling an onion. With every layer there are fresh tears. I never get to the point where i have arrived because I am on a journey with God and so are you.

You can replace your brokenness with God’s wholeness, but it will be layer by layer as you come to Him as you are. In your weakness, He will be your strength. Whatever you have done, or whatever has been done to you, you can bring it to Jesus. He knows. He cares. He heals. He delivers.

Whatever layer you are facing in your healing process, know that the Lord is with you. He is using the pain and the suffering to make you more like him.

“‘Nevertheless, I will bring health and healing to it;

I will heal my people and will let them enjoy abundant peace and security.”

Jeremiah 33:6

The Beauty of Being in God’s Presence

Jesus warned us to be on guard against being like the Pharisees. The Pharisees were judgmental. They lived by the rules and they missed the big point of who God was.

being in God's Presence

They tried to do the little things but missed but what really mattered.  The main point of prayer is relationship, not ritual.

Don’t miss the main point of coming to God, it’s building that relationship, it’s being transparent and real.

Letting at times your unglued emotions to share that desperateness of your need for him.

Prayer is being in God’s presence without pretense.

 

Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving;
    let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!

Psalm 95:2

Know God Intimately

Bridge of Healing

To know God intimately we need to be able to spend time with him every day. Jesus is the bridge of healing. He makes a way for you and I to come to our Father in Heaven. He bridges the gap and heals our wounds.

Know God Intimately

You might get in your mind that we kneel before God and there’s some light that comes from heaven and the heavenly choir begins to sing and there is a little halo over our heads.  That’s not how my prayer time is. When you and I consistently walk and talk with God, our lives will be changed.

Know God Intimately

When you see God for who He is, you will walk with greater clarity about who you are.  He is available to you.  You can come to him just as you are. Speak to him in every day ordinary conversation.  If you don’t know what to pray the Spirit will help you.

“In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness.

We do not know what we ought to pray for,

but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.”

Romans 8:26

God is taking you deeper. He is going to make you more like Himself every day.

Your Mistakes Become Your Message

Do you ever feel like you have to have it all together? Even when Jesus hung on the cross for our sins it didn’t appear like he had it all together and yet he was accomplishing the biggest thing that could have ever be accomplished.

Your Mistakes become your message

Whenever you and I step into performance or we try to please people with how things look we are stepping away from the way that Jesus has called us to live our lives.

After he was resurrected he showed his disciples his nail scarred hands and the wounds of his side.  For you and for me it is the wounds that God has healed in our lives that give the transformative power of God to others that we meet.

“Then he said to Thomas,

“Put your finger here; see my hands.

Reach out your hand and put it into my side.

Stop doubting and believe.” John 20:27

Forgiven Through Christ

Jesus Christ was wounded for your sake and for mine.  On that cross he bore our sin and shame.

Jesus Christ

And sometimes we forget about that we just carry around our wounds and our hurts or our difficult relationships and we feel like we can’t forgive people.

We just struggle in our minds and if we just stop and remember Jesus has already paid for this.

And like a gift if we just receive that then not only can we be forgiven of our sins but we are able to forgive others.

If Jesus could hang on the cross and forgive you and me even before we were born then you and I can walk in that forgiveness.

“He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross,

so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness;

“by his wounds you have been healed.”

1 Peter 2:24

God’s Forgiveness is for You!

Amazing Grace

Aren’t you amazed at God’s grace.  His grace is so amazing that he gives that grace to all of us.  I love the song that John Newton wrote and he was a former slave trader.  He had seen all the evil of the slave trade and he had been a part of it.  When he experienced the grace of God forgiving him for his sins and his sins against other human beings.  These are the words that he wrote,

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,That saved a wretch like me.I once was lost but now am found,Was blind, but now I see.

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,

That saved a wretch like me.

I once was lost but now am found,

Was blind, but now I see.

You can experience this amazing grace from Jesus.

“For it is by grace you have been saved,
through faith—and this is not from yourselves,
it is the gift of God—
not by works,
so that no one can boast.
Ephesians 2:8-9

Father’s Hand

Father’s Hand

Some of my earliest memories are reaching up and taking my father’s hand. It was rough and calloused from working. I always felt safe holding daddy’s hand. I liked to twirl around and dance holding his hand. He would take me in his big hands and throw me in the sky. It felt like I could fly!

Father's Hand

No matter how old you are, you can still look up to heaven, reach up and take your Father’s hand. With child-like hope and expectancy, you can trust that your father in heaven will teach you how to walk. You won’t have to be alone. If you stumble and fall He is there to pick you up.

Jesus talked about how we need to come to the Father as little children.  A child is open to learn.  A child is able to receive direction. There’s a wonder in a child’s heart when they are thinking about the future and they can trust that hand that they hold.

Do you have trouble asking for help when you need it? Do you have trouble trusting in a heavenly father? Do the wounds that you have suffered on earth, cloud your vision of a good God in heaven?

It all requires faith — faith like a little child. So today have a child-like heart and reach up and take His hand.

“Take me by the hand;

Lead me down the path of truth.

You are my Savior, aren’t you?”

Psalm 25:5 MSG

Jesus encourages each of us to come to God like a child…. Like a trusting child, reach up and take your father’s hand to lead you and guide you today.

Happy Father’s Day!

QUALITY GOODS One of the best ways to encourage our children as they have their childlike faith is to pray for them.  Grab our Top 10 List for Praying for Your Family.
