when healing comes … or when you find yourself free

July 30, 2014








we carry things along with us.

sometimes we have no idea where they even came from

tucked away they grow

eventually others begin to notice.

hurts so big they show from the outside.

we can go a long way,

we can do a lot of amazing things,

we can keep moving pretty far while carrying hurts.

Then one day the healer comes.. a Shepherd walks into view…

a power we didn’t know was possible.

We may have thought His eye was just on sparrows and not us

Healing is a crazy thing.

Freedom is even more crazy.

Those who can come alongside you and celebrate with you are handpicked by Him.




You would think … (rather)  I thought, healing would feel more climactic … but instead, it is something you find yourself in…

One day you will find yourself just walking along and realize the hurt isn’t there

One day you look around and you no longer hear the snapping hungry jaws of wolves in hot pursuit of your life

One day you realize you can forgive the unforgivable

One day you realize those lies spoke over you are crazy talk and you can’t imagine agreeing with any of  them

One day you find that other peoples hurts can’t hurt you and  now, only make you feel compassion

One day you wonder how long have you been just walking in this healing … days into months into a new life.

One day you find yourself free

One day you find yourself healed

I tell you… just like that, it happened to me.
