Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases. ~Psalm 103:3
My child, I am still healing ancient wounds in your soul. The process is slow and often hidden from your view. But I tell you, of a truth, it is taking place. You are not marking time and your circumstances are not accidents. So lift up your head and your heart, and receive each day as a gift. You do not know the end, but I do, and I am leading you toward My goal for you. ~Echoes of Eternity, August Twenty-second, Page 179
The blood of Jesus Christ cleanseth us from all sin. ~1 John 1:7
The wounds of the soul must be cleansed before healing can take place. The cleansing process is painful for you, because the stains are the result of your sinful choices in the past. The more you are aware of this, the easier it makes your cooperation with the process. The light of truth exposes the ugliness of these sores, but the Balm of Gilead then restores lost beauty. Marvel at the goodness that directs My operation, and do not flinch at the necessary pain.
Once again, Father speaks directly to me through Hal. Yes, it is painful. I’ve lived through very few things as painful as this has been. Yes, it’s the result of my sinful choices – some willfully sinful, others ignorantly so.
Praise and glory and thankfulness to my Father, who is making something beautiful from my pain, rather than letting it be wasted, and who does not tire of reminding me when I am wont to forget.
I am especially grateful for Father’s mercy and grace when I deserve it the least.
I have had a rough couple weeks. A long, painful, drawn-out breakup with lots of emotional ups and downs along the way. Now my former Love (whom I still love) is hospitalized, and I cannot be of help or comfort, because we have broken up and I am out of the picture. Continue reading
[I am] walking a new path–and yet an old path. It was offered [me] long ago, but [I was] not ready to receive it. Continue reading
I used to have complete control over every aspect of my children’s lives. I homeschooled, so their education was under my purview. They were with me all day long, so their behavior was managed by me. I even did my best to manipulate their relationships with each other and with their father. They mostly had access to only the food I provided them. Since I of course want only the best for my children, this all meant they received an excellent education, navigated their relationships well, and got lots of healthy food and physical exercise.

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 4:6,7 Continue reading
Why do I spend so much time sleeping, anesthetizing with sugar and screen time, or procrastinating? I believe it’s because I am reluctant to face my sin, confess it, and move forward. Continue reading
