When Your World Falls Apart // Impromptu Letters of a Christian Blogger

September 09, 2017



Dear Reader,


Under Strain
Badly Hurt
In Pain
Hearing Arguments
Enduring Fear
 Bearing Worry
Whatever you are going through, you aren't alone.
And I know if you are severely struggling that sounds cheesy
It probably would to me when something like that is happening to me
At that moment when things are going wrong
I tend to see a lack of God
A lack of law and justice
But God is there, even when the people you love are the people who are hurting you
God only wants you to do one thing
The right thing
He doesn't want you to be right or to argue
He wants you to take a step of faith
And trust in Him
He wants you to pray
But praying is hard
When you are bitter praying is often the last thing you want to do
It sounds like blowing dandelions and making wishes in the middle of a full blown battle
But God wants me to lay aside my bitterness and be vulnerable
To shed my hurt and give my wounds to the Healer
 But many times all I do is pitifully layer bandaids onto my wounds
And say "I'm ok God."
But God laughs and He says, "You are not my Child.
Stop trying to fix your wounds, your doubts, your pains, your anxieties
Because no one can heal them... 
But Me
So I want you to humble yourself and bow down
I want you to give yourself to me
I want you to willingly put your fate in my hands
I want you to put your small hand in Mine
And I want you to follow me and trust me
To heal your deep wounds
I want you to give me your heart
The whole thing"
You know what? We often forget just how jealously God loves us
He wants everything of us
He wants to love us forever and he wants to carry us in his all encompassing arms when our feet are too weak to continue
God loves you as if you were his child and bride at the same time
He loves with a love that is beyond any human measure
He loves like a jealous warrior that says "Do not put your hands on my daughter (or son), on my beloved or you will suffer."
But God is also like the patient Father of the prodigal son, His heart cries to see us when we leave
I can almost bet all of us would be angry at a girl who walks away and uses a boy who loves her (same the other way around)
How much more horrible is it to walk away from God Almighty whose love is beyond any human love
Yet he waits patiently
He is the one that holds all the keys to our hearts
The power to heal our deep wounds
But we chose band aids again

Beloved don't chose band aids, they'll never heal your wounds.
They can only hide what is rotting inside
Chose the One who Loved you before you even were
Not only can He heal your wounds but He can also give you a future
Even if you live on a battlefield, He can give you joy in your heart
The joy that comes from having one who loves you 
fight with you every step of the way
Chose Him 
<3 

Love,

Anna

  8. Wow, that band-aid in the face of the Healer analogy is powerful. Your words make me stop - and that's rare in our constant-stream-of-information world. So thank you.

    Are you affected by the hurricane? It's hard to think of friends on the other side of the world facing these natural disasters. I hope you're safe and well. xx
