Here is another post from a blog I no longer write for. I am slowly transferring all my posts to one place. This one is from August 2011.
I love how God works with us in such tangible and visual ways.
He is currently working in me to heal some old wounds. Funny how the healing process can be a bit painful at times. I am learning to trust Him and let Him work in me however He pleases.
A few Sundays ago, He impressed an image on my mind in church during worship. I was standing on a ledge with Jesus. We turned and saw this desolate scene:
I recognized it as the limestone formations blackened over time in the Cayman Islands. My husband and I stopped there on our honeymoon. Interestingly, the place is named Hell!
In my visual moment with the Lord, He said to me, “Speak to the past and say, ‘You will have no power over me.’ ”
Those dark and dry limestones are a fair portrayal of my past. Maybe yours too. Take heed to the word of the Lord! Your past has no power over you. Your Father God rises to cover you with healing in His wings. (Malachi 4:2)
