I hear you.
(Yes… I do.)
And, I will come, when the time is right.
Remember Mary and Martha? They were in a storm, too. They didn’t understand, either.
I want you to let go of this need to understand everything. It is the frightened child in you struggling for safety and a sense of control.
(Yes, I understand.)
Your childhood was difficult.
But, it is time to surrender your childhood years.
The pain is still so real.
But, you are no longer a child.
You have come through all that. Give them up now. Give them to Me. All the memories of confusion and terror.
(I am a Faithful Father.)
Remember, you would not be who you are, had you not come through those storms.
(I like who you are.)
Yes, I know… liking yourself… that’s the challenge.
(But, we’re getting there.)
You are so much farther than your parents ever got, yes?
I will take the memories and heal them.
Yes, I will, but first you must let them go.
They are holding you back.
I have come to give abundant life; abundant joy.
But the choice to receive?
(That is yours.)
“I am in deep trouble and I need His help so badly. All night long I pray, lifting my hands to heaven pleading.” Psalm 77:2
