“Behold, you delight in truth in the inward being, and you teach me wisdom in the secret heart” Psalms 51:6, ESV
My husband said something very wise to me while I was feeling emotional one day over a situation that occurred years ago. He said, “Don’t pretend to be somewhere you are not, because pressure will prove where you really are.” Those words have stayed with me.
Healing takes place when we’re truthful. We can find healing in saying, “This is where I am right now. Yes, I still have faith in God, but this is where I am right now and I need your prayers and continued support.”
Maybe you’re still getting over the death of someone or something, and you’re trying to pretend that you’re fine. Know that God knows you daughter. He knows where you truly are, and He knows how to get you where you need to be in life. Let God continue to minister healing to every deep wound. Let Him show you that those who genuinely love you won’t mind you crying over something that happened years ago. And most importantly, let God help you to keep moving forward as He heals you completely and makes you whole.
Prayer: Father God, I thank You for speaking to me. You know where I am right now and how challenging it has been. Help me not to pretend. I receive Your love and I receive Your comfort. I receive Your peace of mind and heart that’s only found in You. I love You Lord. Heal every deep wound and fill every gaping hole that’s been left in me. Help me be honest with You and with those who love me. In Jesus name, Amen.
(Read Psalms 147:3; John 8:32)
