Sometimes, it’s easier to just keep going. Instead of taking a pause and allowing the Lord to nurse your wounds, you find more peace in bleeding. Though this may sound counterintuitive, this is the reality many of God’s children are facing. They are finding themselves pressed in on all sides and seeing no option to just simply heal.
Truth is, God is a comforter. When in times of trouble, He desires for us to seek His warm embrace. But sometimes, the very cares and woes of life that has wounded us, are now the barriers that keep us from receiving His comfort.
If you are currently in this place, I want to encourage you to surrender your situation to Him. Let go of every plan and simply go back to that place of blindly trusting Him. Putting off your healing, only damages you more.
You must realize it's His presence that heals you. It's time you allow yourself to be repaired, restored and renewed. But this can only happen when you choose to welcome and embrace God’s comforting presence…
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.”
2 Corinthians 1:3-4 NIV
"As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you; and you will be comforted over Jerusalem.”
Isaiah 66:13 NIV
