I am just going be real with you all today!
How painful our deepest wounds can be! Some even seem forever etched in our memory.
I have been immersed in that belly of suffering where it seemed my heart was gashed beyond repair.
I have seen those I thought were friends walk away and seek to destroy, I have had even family do things I never would have dreamed and still continue to let their tongues get away from them.
How many of us already knows people love to take it to the phone rather than the Throne.
I have felt the sting of betrayals and hurt. I have felt my heart shatter to pieces the day they buried my dad in the cold, hard ground and that one still knocks the wind out of me every day of my life.
I have been to that place where I demanded, “Where are you God and why don’t you fix this?”
Through all my tears and frustration, I could not see what God was doing.
I have suffered loss, hurt, and been caged by the enemy with a spirit of such fear and timidity that would hinder any boldness the LORD tried to bring out in me.
I have been in the pit, hid out in the caves and some so dark I never thought I would get out.
I never thought for one second I would have begun a ministry entrusted and controlled always by his Mighty Hand.
Believe you me, the LORD had to really be persistent with me before Hezekiah’s Wall came to be.
Why am I being so real with you?
Why am I sharing this with you?
Because in the darkest moments, Jesus was already there waiting for me in the abyss and the glorious light of my Blessed Hope standing there before me penetrated every part of my wounded soul.
In my deepest wounds, I saw His Glory and it astounded me,
It dazzled me!
I share this with you because some of you right now reading this are treading a path of loss,grief and just pure heartbreak.
Every step gets more painful and hard to bear for you. Whether it be from the hand of others or by circumstance, you are a scarred and bruised soul.
Let me encourage you that this too shall pass. What seems beyond repair, His healing balm can restore.
As I always say, this storm will run out of rain. If God be for you, then whom can be against you. The mouths speaking against his anointed will be shut abruptly!
Listen to my words and let them take shelter in every corridor of your hurting heart.
The road for you has been painful and that I do understand. Let me say that in those dark moments, I have seen his hand holding mine and heard his voice so clearly say, “I love you and I got you!”
I have let him lead when I had no clue what the LORD was doing in my life.
It is hard to take your hands off of things sometimes. We just want to fix it ourselves!
However I can say that through all the tears and pain, it literally takes my breath away that the LORD has entrusted me with this plan He has set before me.
Although it is something I never envisioned in a million years for myself it is his astounding plan.
A plan that has led me through grief, loss, and heartache and brought me to the other side where I found peace, restoration, forgiveness, love, and joy unspeakable.
And He is not done with me yet!
He is not done with you either! Whatever the pain, lay against him and breathe.
In the midst of your pain, you will catch the glimpse of your Ultimate Hope.
So be of good cheer and great courage, rest assured when your Redeemer walks in the room, everything will change!
You ask me how I know this?
Because I can boldly declare, “In My Deepest Wounds, I Saw His Glory and it Dazzled me!”
Hallelujah it still astounds me!
