    Sylvia Listen to Isaiah 42:3. "A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out." And Psalm 147:3. "He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds."

    Come to the promises of God for healing. In His humanity Jesus knew sorrows, pain, and rejection. He understands feeling bruised, broken, and wounded (Isa 53:1-6). He is your healing sacrifice. He is able to come to your help (Heb 2:17-18). He turns brokenness to shouts of joy (Isa 54:1).

    Receive God's healing. Isaiah said that God takes our wounds as an opportunity to display His glory (Isa 61:3). In the end He "will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain" (Rev 21:4). God can restore what the enemy plundered. He said, "I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten" (Joel 2:25).

           

    Let the Holy Spirit of truth heal you. Come to Him and allow Him to pour His healing into your inner being. Give Him all blocks to your freedom, especially unforgiveness, vows, judgments, and hopelessness. Be blessed with the love and compassion of your heavenly Father touching everything from the past. Look into His tender face to let Him heal you. He will heal deeply and profoundly, not just put on a band-aid to superficially cover the injury.

Be blessed with the comfort of your Abba. Be blessed as He washes those areas that are tender and raw. Be blessed as He brings back to life those parts of your being long denied or buried. He nourishes you with gentleness, kindness, and hope in Him. He gathers you to His heart, drawing you deeper into His grace. He responds to your tears with healing. He remains faithful to you. Breathe in His love and healing.

Be blessed in confidence that your heavenly Father honors your tears that seek Him, your patience to wait for Him, your eyes to behold Him, your wisdom to perceive Him, your heart to meditate on Him, and your life to show Him forth in the power of the Spirit of Jesus your Lord.

Be blessed in the peace of God that rests upon you with His joy and strength. Be blessed in the courage of the Holy Spirit. The risen Jesus living in you is bringing you resurrection power. Align yourself with Father, Son, and Holy Spirit every moment of every day.

Be blessed to receive more peace, more love, more power, more of Him 

who is All and fills everything in every way. 

Colossians 3:11, Ephesians 1:23
