|Oh, the joy of the healing streams.|
~I wrote out a short-list to show what was used to heal my soul with its hurting, wounded places.~
First, it was the forgiveness that came, in a deeper way than ever before.An intense few sessions it took, revisiting the old wounds so God through Christ could set me free. By His stripes and by His wounds I was healed. I was set free. I am whole.
Next, it was the sorrow for my part in causing pain to others, in a deep cleansing tide.
Last, it was a process of my emotions being healed through spiritual interventions.
Bind my thoughts to the mind of Christ.
Bind my emotions to the Holy Spirit.
Bind my will to the will of the Father.
Loose that which is not of God, my wrong thinking.
the lies I’ve believed, the Enemy’s strongholds in my life.
Bind me to You, dear God, loose what is not of you.
Learning to differentiate between a thought and a feeling. To know what is a thought and what is a feeling. To discern what is true and what is not true about me, circumstances, and the past. To be able to discern what is best, not just better. To determine what is “best interest” and what is self-serving. Learning the parts of my soul that need remedial interventions that I might become healthy and whole in my personhood and as a spiritual child of God. There is so much more, this is a drop in the bucket of truths learned. Surrender to God must be all encompassing.
It is wonderful to be free. It is a joy to be full. It is humbling to be loved so much. Praises to God. Healing Streams in the desert wasteland. But! God doesn't waste anything. He needs us to trust Him and then surrender ... everything. Joy comes in. It replaces the sadness and sorrow. New life in the inner places can be had. Don't give up too soon. Seek and seek, then seek some more. Open up to God and He will open up to you. I believe this with my whole heart, and it is why I write my streams in the desert.Yes, I am blessed. Praises to God for His abundant mercies and healing grace. I don’t know if I would have made it on my own without these many helps. I
am blessed and fortunate.
