I’m convinced that God is on the move with accelerated purpose, greater than what the church has witnessed in the past.
I’m convinced that we, the Church, are in a critical and unique place in the plans of God. I believe that God is about to bring a release so profound that millions of people that we would never expect, will turn their lives over to Jesus. They will be coming into the Kingdom in droves out of drug abuse, sexual perversion, antagonistic atheism, and many places and lifestyles. They are going to miraculously find Jesus.
And they are going to need healing.
They will need a church, God’s people, to help them move forward out of their addictions, the pain of torture and every kind of abuse as well as demonic oppression. They will NEED US! They will need a holy and healthy church. A church of ordinary people who can lead them toward complete healing of their heart (soul), mind, body, will and emotions.
My friends, this is our next calling. And as SUMites we have a unique place in this. Because we live in a spiritually mismatched marriage and thus, most of us know what it feels like to not fit in the “church.” We understand how to thrive on the fringe of church life. And after many years living as a married-single at church, our experience has prepared us to help others who come to church to find acceptance. God has uniquely prepared us with the knowledge and heart to help them to fit in and be healed.
BUT, we can’t help them if we aren’t healed ourselves!
Thus, I’m convinced the Holy Spirit has filled my heart with so much knowledge in the last year about healing that I’m to share with our community. You know, ever since I started writing ten years ago, the Lord said to me, “Lynn, just share what you are learning. Share from your heart what I am teaching you. Because what you are learning is what others need as well.” So truly, most of what I’ve written is an account of my love relationship with our Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.
So, it may appear to be a weird thing to teach about emotional healing on a marriage blog. But, the more I spend time with Jesus the GREATER the urgency rises in my heart to share what I’ve learned.
Let me ask you something.
Do you wonder why you still struggle so much in your faith? Are there moments when you are filled with doubt? And yet you have prayed and prayed to remove all doubt. Do you fight continuing battles with anxiety and overwhelming fear? You experience triumph and then days later, fear overwhelms your mind again. Why does this happen?
Do you still battle against anger even rage? Why do you fight against addictions, apathy, resentment, your weight, shame, guilt and pain? Real pain?
I ask this because I know so many believers truly press into their relationship with Christ. Like me they read the Word. They have worked through a great amount of forgiveness and have done the hard work of learning obedience to obtain God’s best for our lives.
YET, we still struggle in areas and the enemy gains a grip in our life and brings destruction. Why does this still happen to me? We can’t quite figure it out.
Well after some great research and real practice I’ve come to discover that some of our struggle is related to unhealed emotional pain. And emotional pain can wreak havoc in our life and the lives of those we love. Emotional pain can be hidden in our soul from years ago or a new wound can open up at any time. A relationship can be riddled with unhealed emotional pain. And that is why we are going to walk through how Jesus heals emotional pain.
Through this series, we will endeavor to understand how emotional pain can cause setbacks and how to become free. And I mean FREE!
We will look at:
- Healing simple emotional pain.
- How God the Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit work to bring healing to emotional pain. (scripture support)
- Toxic shame.
- How to heal an emotional event from your past.
- Emotional healing for marriage.
- The prayer for emotional healing.
- Ongoing healing (day-to-day healing).
- Repentance is healing (You and your family).
- The Four Weapons you have for healing.
- Physical healing.
- Radical obedience leads to increases in the Kingdom.
- Emotional Healing assignments
- Sharing our healing and helping others.
Okay, these are just a few of the topics that are weighty upon my mind. There are more and they are awesome.
We will get started on Friday with outlining how the Trinity works within us for our healing. Today, I want you to go into your prayer time and ask the Lord if you have some wounds that need healing.
In the comments, take a brave step. Write a simple prayer to our Father that you will walk willingly and honestly through this season with Him, seeking His hand, his love and His healing. Pray in Jesus name. I will pray with you.
Are you ready to be touched by the supernatural hand of God?
Great days are ahead for you, healed and whole, in Jesus name.
I love you! Lynn
