Since sharing my journey through my blog, I have met so many people who have been willing to share their stories with me. Everyone has a story to tell. Not all of us have the same story, but many can relate to having negotiated some hard paths along the way. I write this post today to those who feel weighed down or swallowed up in hurt or despair. I want to remind your heavy heart today that that God reaches out to you with "healing in His wings". Here is a beautiful promise for you to hold onto ...
"But unto you who revere and worshipfully fear My name shall the Sun of Righteousness arise
with healing in His wings and His beams,
and you shall go forth and gambol
like calves (released) from the stall
and leap for joy."
This is a beautiful picture to me. On those really tough days when we just do not know how to possibly make it through, God paints us a picture of Himself reaching out healing in His wings to us. Why wings you might ponder? It's because He simply wants to carry us through the pain, hurt, disappointment, heartache or whatever the source of your pain might be. He never meant for one moment for us to make it through on our own. His wings are mighty and strong to carry us through to the other side and as we allow Him to carry us, He holds us close to is heart.
Oh how He loves us!
He promises us that His healing and light WILL cause us to leap from joy! What a beautiful promise to hold Him to.
Allow Him to carry you close today. And I promise you ... no matter how dark it seems right now, He WILL cause the sun to rise again!
All my love xxx
