To be made whole again.
“Dr. Dan B. Allender, in the Wounded Heart, asks, “What must be done to lift the shroud of shame and contempt?” He believes the answer to this question involves a strategy that might at first seem to intensify the problem, which is to peer deeply into the wounded heart.” (Pg. 136)
Looking deeper at the hurts and pain in your heart, can be painful. It isn’t something people really want to do. I know that I don’t like to do that. But I find starting off in prayer with thanksgiving, praise, and worship helps.
Dr. Caroline Leaf the maker of the 21 Day Brain Detox says to start your day off with prayer. She always starts with thanksgiving, praise, and worship.
When I pray like this it really opens my heart up to God. It helps me to really see what is going on in my heart. God can handle it, even when it feels like I can’t. Remember He says “You don’t have to do this alone.” (Pg. 136)
He is always there for you. Don’t be afraid to ask Him to help you with your hurts and pain. Also don’t be afraid to ask for prayer. We are to pray for one another.
The Lord is enough. He is always enough even when we feel like we need more. He is really all we need. 🙂
