Today’s post is the first in a series I’m calling The Process. My heart is heavy with grief over the events of my life during the past couple of years. I’m beginning a process of healing the hurt, but it is going to take some time. I simply just can’t let go of the past 20 years and move on so easily. I know, however, in time (and through the process) the hurt will fade and I will move forward. The first step in that recovery process will happen this week, and I’ll have more on that in a later post. It may take a while to finish The Process series of posts, so I would ask you to bear with me. Writing these will take lots of courage, as I share very personal aspects of my life. I feel that I need to share my feelings openly if I am going to move on, and I can’t think of a better way to do that.
While thinking about this whole healing process a song has stuck in my mind. It is called The Hurt & The Healer by the band Mercy Me. The chorus resonates with me.
I’m alive, even though a part of me has died…I fall into Your arms open wide, where the hurt & the Healer collide.
I know that He alone is my source of strength to get me through the tough times and heal the hurt. I hope you will follow this process of healing with me, and I ask for your prayers as I heal.
