But let all who take refuge in You rejoice; let them shout for joy forever. May You shelter them, and may those who love Your name boast about You. For You, LORD, bless the righteous one; You surround him with favour like a shield (Psalm 5:11,12 HCSB).

The Healing Begins

Everyone has emotions today that are either uplifting or hindering to ones self-esteem. Unfortunately, there may be memories of recurring hurt or acts of bitterness from the past or a present fear that would invade a person's well-being. This is a troubled spirit that’s either emotionally suppressed or spontaneously expressed in a cry for help. Yet, the cleansing or healing of these memories hasn't been fully released upon the compassion and forgiveness of Jesus.

Often, the Holy Spirit will reveal the true nature and path of healing that’s been hidden due to suppression or denial of an issue. Albeit, some people have accepted their misery and found solace in the attention given by the caregiver. This has fostered a need to remain the subject of attention and thereby, they’ve found some comfort. Another reason would be the fear of the unknown that causes insecurity or lack of trust on leaving the bitter acceptance of hurt: for the promise of a new beginning. This only prolongs the impoverishment and/or depression, making it difficult to see through the darkness into the light of salvation.

A person's emotional character might masquerade around the situation and/or display a symptom of a deeper hurt. This may include a physical or emotional ailment that’s rooted in one's psyche or (sin) lifestyle. While this motive continues, the illness will cause an imbalance and may change a person's manner in reacting to life experiences, which causes altered life patterns and more hurt. This situation may also affect the way family, and friends react to them. At this point, it’s essential for everyone to embrace compassion and then move forward in faith ... whilst trusting in grace.

Once an individual dares to believe on God's wonder working power and submits to the glorious enlightenment; a quickening process begins to press outward from the depth of ones soul. This person would exhibit or expresses a release of former personality traits: a mixed bag of sorts. This outward expression is a sign of God’s redemptive power working deeply within and thereby, pushing the old character outwards and washing away the graffiti that has stained the soul. This emotional disposition must be seasoned by family and friends in loving kindness.

If you're finding this cleansing as a recurring pattern, its time for the refiner’s fire, which is a special touch of God. This is an anointed calling by a minister of the faith. This spiritual assistance may also prohibit the deviant actions of another person or suggest another plan of action. Most of all, remember that Jesus loves you dearly. Therefore and assuredly, it's time to step out of the rut that besets (entangles) and let God's gentle and soothing benevolence lift us (emotionally and spiritually) with His manifest presence. Yahweh your God is among you, a warrior who saves. He will rejoice over you with gladness. He will bring you quietness with His love. He will delight in you with shouts of joy. The word delight contains the suggestion of "dancing for joy" or "leaping for joy. To spin about delightfully and magnanimously with waves of glory."

One step of faith as prayer changes things!

Our church should be more than a place of nifty worship music, cute sermons and great fellowship. We should also be a house of prayer, praise and thanksgiving that reaches into our communities with God's compassion and resolve to help people.

To overcome addictions and mend attitudes that are destroying the social network within our neighbourhoods.

The church service in most denominations have adopted the safer and respectable identity by giving the people a cool glass of water to satisfy the soul. Therefore, the wine that permeates the soul is limited to smaller groups. Only to wonder why the gifts of the Spirit are missing and the joy of the Lord is muted.

We are called to be the salt of the earth and a picture of God's love. Oh, what a wonderful God we serve.
