101. Are you Lonely, Feel Abused and Neglected? Being Alone Brings Safety, But Is It God's Inten
I felt like an outsider for a long period of my life. Lonely, neglected, unsafe and alone became a part of my character, my being. I chose to reject the ways of others to find safety in my surroundings. Being wayward meant for me to reject other people and ignore the direction of God. I chose to intellectualize and create my own future plan. Self-preservation and pride does that. Not until I sank to the very bottom did I choose to listen to the gentle guidance of the Creator. As I felt His loving guidance, I chose to, finally and full-heartedly, believe in His words and His Creative power. The scripture of Proverbs 3:5-6 resonated "Trust in the Lord with all of your heart, lean not on you own understanding. Acknowledge Him in all your ways and He will straighten your paths." Have you been there or are you there now?
I also learned "From His mouth comes wisdom and understanding. I bind them around my neck and write them in the tablet of my heart so I can find favor and good repute with God and man. I trust in the Lord with all my heart and do not lean on my own understanding." (Decree, Patricia King, p.32) That knowledge came to me little by little as I was cleansed and chose to have Him guide and lead me forward. The process of cleansing wasn't easy.
Long ago and before my studies, I chose to go forward to healing with a Christian Counsellor. The process itself was not easy - quite the contrary. Yet it was vital for the healing of my mind, body and the inner spirit. Learning to take full responsibility for all my actions and words was humbling and cleansing at the same time. I did not like it. It produced inner strength and a desire for clarity within me that gave me motivation to live.
Where are you in your journey of healing? Have you mended past hurts - or are you trying to stuff them down pretending they do not matter? Inner healing will alter your life and allow you to grow as the Creator intends.
