“The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.” Psalm 34:18-19 (ESV)
In our seasons of pain, the greatest promise is that The Lord is near. We don’t physically have to see our situation resolving in order to know and believe God is right there next to us. It’s important we allow ourselves to process our pain by inviting God into the broken places so He can repair and fill in the empty spaces.
“He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” Psalm 23:1-6 (ESV)
No matter the depth of darkness you’re walking through or the extensive amount of time this journey has taken you, believe that God’s reparation and restoration is making a way because of His love for you. If you’re still walking in your valley, you can’t possibly be stuck because you’re still moving -- moving forward into becoming healed and whole in Christ.
I promise you will be abundantly glad you allowed yourself to feel and heal as you step into freedom, and experience your revival on the other side.
