The Healed Space
Updated: Aug 12, 2020
What if I told you that life is much sweeter in a healed place and the reason you feel stuck is because you are in a broken space? There is only so much out of life you can gain in a broken space. Time to move forward to the healed space.
Ah! The refreshing feeling of knowing that you are healed! The peace and joy you get when you realize the things that use to bother you can easily be brushed off with a shake of the head, a giggle, or even a quick prayer. Two years ago, I never realized how hurt I was, how many bruises and lacerations my heart still had on it. I never realized it was the reason that prevented me to blossom into purpose. Could it have been the residue from my divorce or past relationships? Maybe. Whatever it was, i had unfinished business that was keeping me away from being used in the capacity that God needed me to be used.
I was closed in like a tight fist with the desire to help people just as long as they didn't hurt me. See, some people will hurt you and its not their responsibility to make sure you don't get hurt. This is the whole issue, we place too much responsibility on people for our feelings. We become quick to blame others for what we allow to fester and turn our hearts cold. You didn't have to receive those nasty opinions and rude comments. It was a choice! When we choose to receive opinions contrary to what God says about us, it is because we never believed Him in the first place. Even in a betrayal, yes its hurtful but that is completely on them, don't finish the job that they set out to do which is to alter who you are.

The healed place.....A place where peace and joy resides. A place where no matter what others say about you or do to you, you are still on target to destiny! You know you are healed when you can help heal others. I got my confirmation that my heart was healed when I stopped taking people's personal lives personal and just loved instead. Their business had nothing to do with me! The healed place is where I could be trusted to be touched with others infirmities and to intercede on their behalf. Jesus was touched with our infirmities because He is Love. You wont be touched by others if you don't have Love (Him) inside of you.

Isn't that the ultimate goal? To love on a different level? To love the way that Jesus loved? Well I tell you its impossible to do so until the hurt, pain, and unforgiveness has been resolved in your life first. The process goes as follows...heal, love, and now you can help heal others. Yes, God can use any vessel He chooses to accomplish and complete His will, but wouldn't you want to be used whole? Its so much sweeter to be whole and used by God. I never want God to use me by default just because no one is in the vicinity to be used. I want Him to use me because my heart is good and healthy. I want Him to use me because He knows I will follow His heart driven commandments.
I want my readers this week to seek the healed space in this season. God wants to do so much with a healthy heart.
