Speaking Out Loud!

Staying stuck in our personal brokenness, disappointment, pain, grief, guilt, or shame does indeed keep us from living an abundant and God fulfilling life. The same life that Jesus speaks of in John 10:10.

I get it, we are broken people living in a broken world, attempting to live meaningful lives. But we are often so unaware of how our brokenness affects us. In addition, we’re so scared of letting our vulnerabilities show. Life and the enemy have trained us to hide our brokenness at all costs. Meanwhile, the brokenness is festering and having a relational impact.

Oddly enough, sometimes the most obvious things we need seem hidden, even though they are in plain sight. Most of the solutions for our life are very simple, yet often ignored. One of the greatest practices that is neglected is the need to cultivate and care for the life of the heart.

I John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” and James 5:16 says, “Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.”

That being said, the better option is choosing to seek God’s forgiveness and then receiving God’s permission to heal for ourselves and giving ourselves full permission to do whatever is needed to follow that path to healing.

Accepting God’s permission to heal definitely means facing our fears, doubts, and doing what needs to be done anyway with all of the support we can find, without letting the resistance slow us down.

It’s not easy, but we must not forget that our greatest blessings are always in front of and never behind; God has given us permission to heal, so He is calling us to move forward by His grace every single day!
