Healing starts with You …When we stop resisting the process of growth!
Throughout my journey to self I am learning that in order for me to grow and stop repeating old patterns of the past, I had to allow myself to heal. I required healing from past trauma, mental anguish, and from deep rooted generational curses that affected my external relationships and my internal relationship with self. I assumed the role as "the victim" because that's what I was made to believe about myself when situations and obstacles rose up in my life that I could not control. I could not control being rejected and abandoned from birth, I could not control being physically abused as a child, and I could not control how a person loved me. But, I could control how I saw myself through the eyes of God. Seeing myself through the eyes of God required me to take a deeper look within to understand the root of the hurt - peel back unfruitful layers of myself that I did not know existed.
As I walk(ed) through the process of healing, I began to realize that unresolved spiritual healing can manifest into the need for physical healing because it opens the door to attacks of the mind & the body. The mind is a powerful weapon, especially if it's not governed and guarded by the Word of God.
God says, "a mind governed by the flesh is death, but a mind governed by the spirit is life and peace (Romans 8:6)." My thoughts of myself was based on the delusion that I was not good enough and not worthy of unconditional love. They were paralyzing to my growth because it kept me on the hamster wheel of repeating the same actions with hopes for different results. My thoughts became the death of me, which showed up in the forms of depression, anxiety, and sickness in my body; however, I yearned for life and peace within my mind & heart.
What a game changer when God revealed to me that I was in my own way because of my "stinking thinking" of self, which I had setup in my mind from birth to adulthood. This began the road of deliverance and freedom of the mind by not resisting the process of growth in my life.
God started to show me that I needed to Surrender to his will , Release the need to control what he already had control over, and Grow into the authentic version of myself through the eyes of HIM. This became a 3-step process of reconciling myself to self and to God by focusing on the healing of my mind, emotions, and heart.
Real healing begins when you are honest with yourself. God says, "confess your faults one to another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed (James 5:16)." It takes a village of believers to activate the power of faith through prayer and supplication for one another. Let's heal together!
Read & Reflect on God's Word:
"A mind governed by the flesh is death, but a mind governed by the spirit is life and peace."
- Romans 8: 6
Think about It:
What do you need to heal from that may be hindering you from being the best version of yourself?
