Healing takes place when we’re truthful.

“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)

  2. You know I have heard so much in my walk with Christ that our words make a real difference, and we need to speak life. But the truth of this word is something we cannot deny. We all have holes inside and sometimes we just need to be truthful of course to the Lord cause He already knows anyway but also to someone else that loves us and loves Jesus and who won’t judge us. I was so blessed just yesterday to have a friend to do that with. And she really just listened and had tears and said she will be praying…Thank you DOTK..and all us sister’s who are DOTK♡

  3. You have no idea how much I needed to hear this right now, in this moment. My husband has shared he wants a divorce. I have accepted where he is, yet I still have faith (little, but I am holding on to what I have). Help me Lord to draw closer to you and trust you like never before!

    1. Hello Mae!
      I too have been where you are. My husband left me and I never expected to be in this situation. He has been been gone for almost 3 years and we have a 5 year old daughter and our oldest is deceased. She would’ve been 7 now. As you can understand our marriage went through some very rough times, but I am a witness that if you hold on to your faith our God is a keeper, our refuge strength and strong tower! My sister I am doing better than I ever was with my husband. I know that’s sad but unfortunately true. I said that to say get your focus on God and everything that He has assigned you to do! He understands where you are and cares deeply for you! He is going to bless you exceedingly abundantly above all you can ask or think! This is my prayer for you dear sister in the blessed name of Jesus! Amen

      Love
      Crystal

  4. My husband and I have been going through some storms,but I know God will work it out,because he said bring all of my burdens to him and leave them with him,so I pray and don’t worry and give him all Praise,Honor and Glory ,and it is already worked out.

    1. Amen me and my husband have been a war not a
      Storm but full on war and
      We seperated again in twenty years of marriage.. Which was more like a relationship with strings attached.. Now he is homeless and God
      Has blessed me with a place to stay food shelter and the same for him but he told me
      Yesterday to let him Go and the dagger that went through my heart mind and emotions… I didn’t cry but I step back for a second and began to binge eat and cry.. Cause I don’t understand why he cannt get it together.. Addiction lifestyle is hard on a marriage.. This so helped me cause I’ve been crying for so long all I can do is Pray and move forward.. I don’t know if it’s love or lonilness that is effecting me

  5. 18 years I lost both my teen sons in a drowning accident! The tears still well up though I’ve been trying to hide them to myself! I know my boys are with the Lord because they had a personal relationship with Him as Saviour , but, the might-have-been always come to jab me at times. Today’s post is so relevant and I’m so comforted to know that grieving for them isn’t lack of faith! And I needn’t feel guilty because my Lord knows me from within , my sorrows, my joys , my victories and my failures! And He loves me just as I am!

    1. As a mother, Oh how my heart grieves for you at the lose of your two sons. Both my parents are gone, I lost my mom at age 19. I lost my last and oldest sibling in 2006. I had 3 older siblings and 2 younger siblings and they are all dead. I admit I still grieve and miss them beyond words. And occasionally I still break down. I know our Lord understands. And I do thank him for lending them to me for the amount of time he did. And I admit I have a few times questioned him why I’m the only one who is still living. Yet thru all this I know our Lord loves me and that he has given me comfort and support and strength thru it all. I thank him for the short time I had my family and I thank him for my spouse and our two college age children. I know God has been good to me. May God continue to comfort and heal you to the depth of your being as only he can. May He bless you with joy and peace beyond measure each and everyday. Peace to you, Elizabeth. 🌺🙏🏽
