At first glance, I understood.  It’s a truth I’ve acknowledge many times throughout my life.

Today, I woke up and prayed, then proceeded to my devotional (nothing new.)  A change of course occurred and as soon as the house was empty and quiet- just my dogs, myself and my thoughts- and then a huge outburst of bitter tears commenced. 

 Healing from past abuse and pain can and will surface if left untended.  Just because time (even decades) may  have passed, does not mean a person is healed- that the pain is gone.  I’ve learned this the hard way.  Today, a “ghost” from my childhood reared its ugly head, and quite frankly, took me by complete surprise. The “ghost” I keep burying was triggered into full effect and I felt completely helpless to it- until God mercifully led me to be still. To Be still just long enough to hear His reassurance, “I AM WITH YOU!”

My bitter tears eventually ceased when I was able to read this one thing, “Be Still AND KNOW THAT I AM God.” Psalm 46:10

At that moment, I realized that the author who posted that verse, was also the author who wrote the first statement I typed onto this post. This author’s name is Brooke Lynn, who has an amazing spirit and trust in the Lord. Her story is what helped me move forward to this moment, where I am just being still before God. Somewhere in her writing, she also wrote this verse:

“But Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26

First- Be Still

Next- KNOW that God is right there with you


Pray- Lord, Your Will, not my way. Soften my heart to Your Will, Father. Grant me peace within my soul to let go of this bitterness and to TRUST and KNOW that with YOU all things are possible. In Jesus’ Name, Amen 

 What ever you do, DON’T LOSE HOPE!  Please don’t be like me and cling to pride- not the kind of pride where you’re boastful, but the kind of pride that isolates.  That’s the kind of pride I am praying and working to be rid of.   It’s the kind of pride that tells you NOT to reach out, because you should have this issue down and under control -you don’t want to bring someone else’s day down just because you’re having rough day, kind of pride.

Its a lie.  The truth is in God’s word.  The truth is that God LOVES us and CARES for us SO DEEPLY that words cannot describe these amazing truths.  

So, today, I CHOOSE TRUTH. 

Please feel free to share your experiences.  If you don’t know God and want to, message me and I can direct you to more information.

  1. I can relate to the lasting scars of abuse, and the upheaval of “bitter tears” myself. I believe many kinds of hurts are buried just below “the surface,” and can launch a surprise attack on us at any time. This is when we lean on God and others most. Pray harder, and more deeply. Take more hope in the heavenly prize we wait for.

    Bless you, Greta. I have been healing for years now and I have found the family of God to be a great channel of blessing and healing from God. It is hard to open up at times, but so worth it when you go to the right people for support. God will finish His healing work in you and you will come forth as pure gold. God bless you, sister. 🙂 …………. Debbie

    • You’re welcome Greta for the prayer support, it’s amazing how the Holy Spirit knows the right words at just the right time and your post reflects that! may the beauty the Lord has shown you greatly enrich your growth with the Lord in your faith walk… When we faithfully confess our pains old and new God is faithful to take the strongholds of that pain from satans hands as well.

      What I’m trying to convey here is ➡ satan no longer has access to that certain pain in your life because God has planted the seed of that certain hurt and pain into His garden of Hope to grow it into something beautiful for you and others to see… 🌱🌱🌱
