I’ve been reminded a number of times over the last year that only time can heal our physical wounds. But it’s not just our physical wounds that need time to heal, our emotional wounds also need time to heal.

Time heals griefs and quarrels, for we change and are no longer the same persons. Neither the offender nor the offended are any more themselves. ~ Blaise Pascal

As time passes, our memory of events can change because of how they made, and still make us feel. We don’t mean to do this, it’s just one of those things that happens in our subconscious as time passes.

Time really heal both our physical and emotional wounds. So whatever quarrels or griefs or quarrels  you’re struggling with today, be assured that over time the wounds they have left you with will heal.

Healing rain! That sounds ridiculous doesn’t it, but it is true, there is such a thing as healing rain – It’s not physical rain, but a way of describing the pouring out of God’s love for each one of us, so that we are soaked in His love.

One of my favourite songs is Michael W Smith‘s Healing Rain. and it reminds us of God’s love raining down on us.

Healing rain is coming down
It’s coming closer to the lost and found
Tears of joy, and tears of shame
Are washed forever in Jesus’ name

As I said in yesterday’s blog, life can sometimes make us feel like we’re getting soaked by difficult life events. That’s why I think I like this song because even when we’re hurting physically or emotionally, it reminds us that if we let God’s love pour over us He can heal all our wounds.

Sticking plaster

If only it was as easy as putting a sticking plaster on the world, to fix its issues and problems.

I’ve never been a big Michael Jackson fan, but I’ve found the words of one of his song, going through my head quite a lot in the last few weeks:

There’s a place in your heart
And I know that it is love
And this place could be much
Brighter than tomorrow
And if you really try
You’ll find there’s no need to cry
In this place you’ll feel
There’s no hurt or sorrow

There are ways to get there
If you care enough for the living
Make a little space
Make a better place

Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me
And the entire human race
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make it a better place
For you and for me

If you want to know why
There’s love that cannot lie
Love is strong
It only cares of joyful giving
If we try we shall see
In this bliss we cannot feel
Fear of dread
We stop existing and start living

The it feels that always
Love’s enough for us growing
So make a better world
Make a better place

Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me
And the entire human race
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place for you and for me

And the dream we were conceived in
Will reveal a joyful face
And the world we once believed in
Will shine again in grace
Then why do we keep strangling life
Wound this earth, crucify its soul
Though it’s plain to see
This world is heavenly
Be god’s glow

We could fly so high
Let our spirits never die
In my heart I feel you are all my brothers
Create a world with no fear
Together we cry happy tears
See the nations turn their swords into plowshares

We could really get there
If you cared enough for the living
Make a little space
To make a better place

Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me
And the entire human race
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place for you and for me

There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place for you and for me

Whatever we need, whenever you need it, God will be there when you cry out to Him, when you need help.

God can and will heal all your wounds and take away all your worries.

How strong is your faith?

Whatever and whoever we face in life, God will be there to help you through.

have-faith

Have faith!

 

Isaiah 53:4-5 – (NKJV)

Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.

Do you feel healed today?

I guess for many, we will not be feeling very “healed” today maybe because we’re suffering some physical or emotional illness, or facing some uncertainties in your life. However you are feeling though, I want to remind you today that we are healed!

Still Believe by Kim Walker Smith

Your blood makes the deaf to hear right now
Your blood takes away the curse right now
Your blood heals every disease right now
Your blood sets the addict free right now

And I still believe You’re the same yesterday, today and forever
And I still believe Your blood is sufficient for me

Your blood mends the broken heart right now
Your blood compels me to forgive right now
Your blood transforms my mind right now
Your blood brings the dead to life right now

And I still believe You’re the same yesterday, today and forever
And I still believe Your blood is sufficient for me

You’re the higher power
Darkness cannot stand
No longer bound to sin, I am free

And I still believe You’re the same yesterday, today and forever
And I still believe Your blood is sufficient for me

Oh, all that I need
You are all that I need, Jesus
Your blood is enough for me
Oh, I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe, yeah

And I still believe You’re the same yesterday, today and forever
And I still believe Your blood is sufficient for me

All I need
Come cover us right now
Come cover us Jesus
The blood, it opens deaf ears
The blood, breaks down disease
In Your presence, God, it has no place,
Pain has no place, disease has no place, sickness has no place
Weariness has no place, depression has no place
In Your presence, God, In Your presence, Jesus
We find all we need, we find all we need, we find all we need
In Your presence, Jesus
Oh, Jesus, all we need, is in You, Jesus
We believe, we believe, we believe
Tell Him tonight, tell Him tonight
Say I believe, I believe
Sing out in your words tonight
Let faith rise, let faith rise
Tell Him tonight
I believe, I believe You are who You say You are
You are the one who sees me, You’re the one who’s for me
You’re the one who knows me, every hair on my head
You created me, how You love me
You’re the one who has abundant help, abundant light for me
You’re the one who has joy for me, Jesus
I believe, I believe, I believe
You are all I need
I believe, I believe, I believe
Oh, with all my heart, with all I am, even when I cannot see
I will stand with faith and I will believe
Oh, I believe, I believe, yeah

I believe, I believe
I will never stop believing
I believe, You are more than enough for me, God
I will not fear, I will not fear
Cause I believe
I believe

Are you looking for simple ways to encourage your heart and nourish your soul?

In the last while I’ve given you some ideas which will hopefully inspire you to implement them in your own life, and over the coming weeks I’ll share some others with you.

So here’s today’s suggestion:

Make your own music

As I said in #44 in this series, music is a powerful thing that can have a tremendous effect upon both our spirit and our heart, bringing healing, peace, inspiration, joy and hope but it can also make us feel sad and emotional, and I encouraged you to listen to your favourite music.

But today my suggestion is still about music, but this time I’m going to suggest you make your own music – Whether you’re a singer, played a musical instrument many years ago but not played in a while, or always wanted to learn to play an instrument, it’s time to take action today and just do it! Join a choir, start refresher music lessons, book a teacher to start you on your journey of making music.

Music is an art like no other as it helps give expression to the deep emotions that we may be feeling but are unable to vocalise or express in any other way. So take up that art by making your own music as again, I can assure you that in doing so it will brighten your day.

Music-brightens your day

Listen to your favourite music

Music is a powerful thing as it can have a tremendous effect upon both our spirit and our heart, bringing healing, peace, inspiration, joy and hope but it can also make us feel sad and emotional.

I find it quite amazing and inspiring that from just a few notes, we can go from one end of the emotional spectrum through music. I guess for each of us, the music that takes us to those opposite ends of the emotional spectrum can be very personal to us, and probably also depends on how we are feeling at the time we are listening to the music as well.

So what music lifts your spirit and inspires you to face the day and all the challenges hat may bring? Whatever music that is, I urge you to listen to that music each morning as it will set you up for the day and hopefully make your day that little bit brighter.

Music-brightens your day

 

Healing rain is coming down
It’s coming closer to the lost and found
Tears of joy, and tears of shame
Are washed forever in Jesus’ name

The above is a verse from one of my favourite songs, Michael W Smith‘s Healing Rain. It’s probably one of my favourite simply because it is about God’s love raining down on us, healing our wounds.

Events in life can hurt us physically and emotionally. They can scar us physically and emotionally and cause us real hurt and pain.

Don’t let life’s events change who God wants you to be. Instead let Him heal your wounds.
