As I was chatting with a dear, dear friend today, something she said, sparked this light inside of me – from The Holy Spirit to not only validate my friend, but encourage me that – dude Healing – the process hurts – but it really is BETTER on the other side. True healing that is.
My friend hurt had a sliver of glass in her body and took a day or two before she received medical care for it. It hurt a hell of a lot more after the sliver was removed than it did the day she cut herself.
When I responded with the physical healing process our body goes through the Holy Spirit opened my eyes to the amazing truth about Healing…..
When a foreign object is in our body, our body is so fucking amazing and wants to heal itself! IT just DOES! It is the way GOD created our bodies — self-regulation and self-healing. Yet, it does this even IF the foreign object or material still remains. Now we do start to feel better initially when the “healing” takes place, however, it will not for long – in fact it could hurt us if we do not EVER remove that foreign object. Yet, logic tells us , wait a minute, we feel better, the object is not hurting us, why remove it? Because if we don’t an infection will start! Yeah but how do we KNOW an infection will start, and won’t it open up new wounds if we pull out the foreign object?
It will cause greater pain to deny the truth that the foreign object needs removed, than the pain that will ensue when removing the foreign object. It is just how we were created. WE were created to be whole, free of foreign objects, sometimes it will hurt, but we will be whole on the other side of the initial PAIN. and it will be GREAT pain!
I mean how wouldn’t it be? Our body was doing it’s job in healing the cut, and we are reopening a healing wound so it will hurt A LOT! Because our body doesn’t see the big picture it only sees the little immediate sensations.. It is how our body was made to keep us safe.
The same is true with emotional wounds. Probably why mental illness is called an invisible disease. Because these emotional wounds are hidden – yet our body tried to heal itself – from these emotional wounds, while the lies of the emotional wounds remain buried deep within. The only way to heal from this… yep – Tear away the lies – bit by bit. DAMN it is a fucking painful process. Yet, truly this is what we need to be Whole to be WHO God created us to be.
We cannot do this alone – we can’t, just as a medical doctor will remove the foreign material from my friends hand, so will a mental health provider help us remove the lies of our past that constrain us from living Wholly who We were MADE to be. It is not easy to face the truth, it is not easy to admit we need help. It is not easy to dig into places we didn’t even know existed, yet, only when these lies are removed can – we truly BEcome – who it is we were CREATED to be.
This truth – this healing process the truth in how medicine is medicine is MEDICINE – no matter the source – healing only begins when the foreign material is removed and fresh wounds are opened. Then and ONLY then can we, if we choose, face the pain and allow the Healing to filter in – the True Healing – from the SOURCE of ALL!
I pray as you read this – whatever it is you, the reader are to receive and understand – opens up your eyes to not only how much we are created to need help in this world, BUT how normal it is to receive mental health care. If one is damaged by lies the only way to heal is to get help to tear away the lies and find our-self – the self – God created us to be!
First Corinthians 13:11-13, “When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. But when I became an adult, I set aside childish ways. For now we see in a mirror indirectly, but then we will see face to face. Now I know in part, but then I will know fully, just as I have been fully known. And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
I pray Love from the source of LOVE FLOODS each an every person’s soul who reads this blog. Be blessed!
