Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well. 3 John 1:2
I love this [the pic] so much because it can be viewed from multiple perspectives. Whether you are tearing down a wall that holds you back from being your best you, or you are trying to repair the cracks that have taken place over time due to environmental circumstances…THIS IS FOR YOU‼️
We all at some point in life have had situations and circumstances affect us in a way that had the potential to be damaging to our being. Most of our defense mechanisms immediately build walls to keep us from having to face those circumstances again. They made us feel secure and protected so that we would not have to endure the harm. Others sustained structural damage to the mental, physical, and/or emotional being.
Either way, we are left with a feeling of hurt shame and rejection. Hurt is the emotion that we need to fix. Hurt builds walls and weakens infrastructures. It is time to come out of the hurt. Building walls represents the tough guy who does not want anyone to know the hurt. The hurt hides under a layer of pride. Because if you didn’t build the wall, you would be the one with all the structural cracks. Not matter how it is presented, it is still a stumbling block in your life. It is a burden needing to be lifted.
Matthew 11:28 28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
I don’t know where you stand in your faith but I want to encourage you that God is the one who is able to restore and repair you. He is our Guide, our Counselor, and our Healer. I want you to start today by just sincerely asking the Lord to help you come out of hurt. To help renew and restore you in the comfort of His presence.
Jeremiah 30:17 17 But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,’ declares the LORD, ‘because you are called an outcast, Zion for whom no one cares.’
- 2 Corinthians 5:17 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
This is not an overnight process and sometimes we have to relive or face those elements that affected us to begin with. But when you come out victorious on the side, you will experience a freedom like nothing before. Weights fallen and burdens lifted. Otherwise, walls demolished and cracks repaired. A vision of newness ❤️🙌🏾
I feel like someone needs to hear this as well.
IT IS OK TO GO TO THERAPY‼️ IT IS OK TO RECEIVE HELP‼️
TheRapy is God allowing us to receive added support. Repair yourself one day at a time. Do not beat yourself up for how you got here or for how long it takes to renovate. You deserve to be made whole, renewed, and restored. Take joy in the process and trust the One who restores. He desires you to have peace.
Jeremiah 29:11 11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
