Motto in A Minute: Let God Heal My Wounds

Sometimes healing, and finding security where you’re insecure, is hard to do. It is something I’ve been struggling with and in some ways fighting. But the Lord’s purpose will prevail and He continues to knock on the door to my heart. He wants me to allow Him into the depths of my wounds. And as I reflect, I am reminded of this…

Jeremiah 6:14 alludes that you cannot heal a wound by saying it’s not there.

Sometimes the hardest part is to peel off the band aid and admit the wound is there. It’s up to us to not only peel off the band aid, but to also allow God to truly heal and transform us. We WILL have a story and a purpose beyond the pain and the healing if we let Him use us. But if we continue to just bandage the wounds, and hide from our story, then how can God reach other people with the same open or fresh wounds? Better yet, imagine the other lives that can be transformed and find purpose by sharing our stories if we allow God to transform us and find our purpose first.

“But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.”

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭53:5‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Let’s give God our wounds. Today, as you face any hurt or reminders of your pain, say and repeat “Let God heal my wounds”.Surrender to Him and allow Him to heal every cell. Ask Him today to start healing you from the inside out all for His glory.

Motto In a Minute: Seek God’s Word to Overcome

I am so thankful for God’s Word!
 When I wake up feeling like I just don’t know if I can do it all, like I don’t know if I can measure up, like I don’t know what to do about something, like I don’t know if or when we will find deliverance… God’s Word reminds me of His love and promises for us. I find strength in Him, hope in His promises, and encouragement and guidance in His Word.

When I look at all that the people in the Bible endured and still held strong to their faith and moved forward in their callings, I am greatly encouraged. Noah, Abraham, Joseph, Paul, even Jesus, and so many more…

Whatever your current trial is that feels so difficult that you dont know how you will overcome, remember you can do this, but only with Him. Look at some of the most influential characters in the Bible and study their story. Nothing great comes without obstacles and trials. 

Today as you face obstacles and trials, remind yourself to seek God’s Word to overcome.

When we are weak, we can turn to Him for strength and give Him all the glory. Remember the One who endured the ultimate pain and trials. The One who was the ultimate sacrifice for us.
