A Love That Heals

But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in his wings. And you will go free, leaping with joy like calves let out to pasture. - Malachi 4:2

I have been on a journey of healing for about three years, and I’m not done yet. Each painful step is a slow and overwhelming process. But I am not alone. God is patient and kind and asking me to trust Him with each step I take. His grace and love for me continue to amaze me. I believe healing from emotional wounds is a huge component of finding rest, which is what I have been writing about recently. We cannot rest when we are chained to all our “stuff” from the past.

I felt so compelled to share this today. So many things are necessary for our journey of healing: prayer, community, God’s Word, space to process, worship, looking back at your past with Jesus, etc. But one thing has surfaced again and again for me. And I believe it brings the most healing of all…

I finally get how much He loves me.

I finally believe I am His treasured Daughter. I finally have the space in my heart to let Him in, to open my vulnerable heart enough to allow His love to pour over me. I can actually receive His love.

My heart is breaking free from all the bondage. My mourning is turning to joy.

His love is doing that. His outpouring of love brings the miracle of healing and wholeness.

God often speaks to me through songs. I have been praying for a song that would confirm to me how God loves me as a Father loves a Daughter. A song to show me I am chosen and loved, and I belong to Him.

On Valentine’s Day, I woke up and listened to some worship music, and came across a song that was a direct answer to a detailed prayer I have prayed for a long time.

I cried and laughed, feeling God’s love pour over me as I listened to the song. I felt like it was written just for me. I could feel the healing going on deep inside me. Only the Holy Spirit can do that. Only His love can do that…the ache in my heart lifted, and was replaced by a deep knowledge of how much I am loved, just as I am. I don’t have to prove anything to Him, and that truth brings rest.

And I feel so strongly that someone else out there needs to hear it too. If you feel compelled at all, please stop and listen to the truth in this beautiful song…

Some of my favorite words from this song:

Finally ready now
To close my eyes and just believe
That you won’t lead me
Where you don’t go.

And I’ve been told
To pick up my sword
And fight for love
Little did I know
That Love had won for me

And I will lock eyes
With the One who’s ransomed me
The One who gave me joy for mourning
And I will lock eyes
With the One whose chosen me
The One who set my feet to dancing

It’s nice to know I’m not alone
I found my home here in Your arms (1)

My heart has found home, and REST is coming. Peace and joy are coming…praise the Lord!

Healing brings rest. Our Father’s love brings rest.

Ask God to show you how much He loves you. I believe He will delight in showing you, because He delights in you. It will bring your heart and His heart joy.

I am praying for you,

Tammy

If you are an imperfect wife, mom, daughter, or friend, struggling to stay focused on God in the craziness and find joy in the heartache, then we have something in common. I am a recovering perfectionist and daughter of the King, slowly learning to fully trust the One who sees me just as I am, and is already pleased. I’m so glad you are here.
