Our body becomes switched in our balance, health and orientation when wounds from our past surface from our subconscious mind. For instance, our immune system may attack our healthy organs or allow viruses and bacteria to get the upper hand in our bodily functions.
Therefore, continual nurturing of our soul now - our thoughts, emotions and choices - will enable our health and well-being in the future. Each time we pay attention to our soul, we dissolve the negative electrical charges affecting us in spirit, soul and body.
This allows our healing, loving, present moment awareness to increase. It may improve over a period of time, or it may happen suddenly; but our awareness of and love for the real person inside of us will connect us to the love of Christ in us, and will set us free indeed (John 8:36).
Connecting to the Spirit of God within us facilitates this healing process. The love of God will pour over us like a waterfall, cleansing away the dross from our past. He helps us to forgive and to actually love those who wounded us in the past.
God always uses our trauma to give us a gift: more mercy and grace and compassion, determination and perseverance, agape love for others, the ability to see events from another person's perspective, the seed for a miracle in every trial, etc.
We enjoy life more and are able to help others find healing for their wounds. We help them to nurture their soul and to find healing from Christ within them.
The ultimate gift we receive from our healing is more freedom in Christ Jesus. He shows us the world as it is, and we see and accept our self as we truly are - validating our worth as an individual and as a member of the Body of Christ, as a King's kid and as part of the future Bride of Christ.
Father God, in this world we will have tribulation and distress. Yet, Paul and Jesus both accessed Your Spirit within them in order to find joy in their negative circumstances. Teach us to discover who we are in Christ, so that we can embrace the unique person that You created us to be. We do not need to fit into any mold the world dictates to us; but we can learn to follow Your Spirit for each moment of our day.
You help us to decrease so that You can increase within us. You teach us to pay attention to our needs: physical, emotional, relational, financial and spiritual; and not to expect other people to meet those needs for us. You are perfectly willing to meet our needs and to guide us to people, places, events, ministries and even pets to meet those needs in us. Help us to trust in and to rely only on You through all the days of our life.
Thought for the Day:
Taking down the masks, which we hide behind, and living as Christ prompts us to live, brings freedom to our soul; we can ask for what we need, set protective emotional and physical boundaries with toxic people, stand firm in our beliefs and convictions, wear modest clothing and accessories that highlight our personality, eat food that brings healing to our body, express our opinions in loving and patient ways, and to give our self the freedom of expression, which Christ died on Calvary to provide for us.
