Press towards the mark.
Stop re-hashing the past.
The best therapist is the Word of God!
No trivial trip down memory lane can go where Christ searches.
I will not be doing disclaimers. It’s just what I said.
Healthy healing comes from pressing toward the mark of the high calling of God and allowing God to search our hearts and cleanse us truly.
I want to share a story:
January started an ultimatum with myself in a way. I had been working out a year at home, and my dedication was waning. I knew I needed something, but I couldn’t figure out what given our schedule.
We were introduced to a gym not far from our home by a friend from church. I just still couldn’t see myself working out at a gym. It was simply unfathomable to me. I kept making excuses, but my husband said trust me. I got you babe. I trusted him but I was an emotional ball of anguish and I could not understand why. My heart was beating out of my chest. I was so uncomfortable. We signed up and I literally balled my eyes out all the way home. This continued for a while into our training there.
One day in particular I remember still feeling a bit uncomfortable. I kept apologizing because I just kept feeling like I was always in the way. I was used to saying I’m sorry a million times a day. This time hit a little differently though . I was trying to share with my husband on the way home and I abruptly stopped. He encouraged me to allow the Lord to search me and I tearfully admitted that I’m sorry was so engrained in me from pasts issues. It was like I was apologizing for just ……existing.
I was floored that the Lord God unearthed something that no conversation ever had.
Ladies, I shared that to encourage you all to stop bringing up the past expecting relief. We’ve been taught by society that the only road to recovery is to do this.
Ladies, if we keep digging up our pasts won’t we eventually be in a hole?
Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead,
Philippians 3:13 NKJV
Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties;
Psalms 139:23 NKJV
I’m ending this with more a warning or plea/challenge Christian women we are to uphold the order presented in the Word of God. Feminism is actively waging war against Biblical Womanhood, Biblical Femininty, and Christian women as a whole. The desire is to totally tear apart the Biblical family. The Biblical family is another example of Christ’s design. Remember ladies that God’s design is the only way and the only right standard of doing things. Treating our husbands like children is not of God. Trying to control him in anyway rather with embarrassment or our emotions is witchcraft. We don’t want to operate like that. Prayer changes things. Manipulation ruins things.
For the –
The wise woman builds her house, But the foolish pulls it down with her hands.
Proverbs 14:1 NKJV
Remember ladies to trust God as we cry and repeat.
