Beware, I pray thee, of presuming that thou art saved. If thy heart be renewed, if thou shalt hate the things that thou didst once love, and...

Healed and Whole

One day I dug a little hole,
and put my hurt inside
I thought that I could just forget
I'd put it there to hide.
But that little hurt began to grow,
I covered it every day
I couldn't leave it and go on
It seemed the price I had to pay.
My joy was gone,
my heart was sad,
pain was all I knew.
My wounded soul enveloped me
Loving seemed too hard to do.
One day, while standing by my hole,
I cried to God above
And said, "If You are really there,
They say, You're a God of Love!"
And just like that,
He was right there,
And just put His arms around me
He wiped my tears,
his hurting child there was no safer place to be.
I told Him all about my hurt,
I opened up my heart
He listened to each and every word
to every sordid part.
I dug down deep and got my hurt
I brushed the dirt away
And placed it in the Master's hand
and healing came that day.
He took the blackness of my soul
and set my spirit FREE!
Something beautiful began to grow
where the hurt used to be.
And when I look at what has grown
Out of my tears and pain
I remember every day
to give my hurts to GOD
And never bury them again.
Have faith in our Loving God.
There is nothing in this world
too big for our LORD.
May GOD bless you each and every one in Jesus Mighty Name Amen.

  7. I tell you brother the thing is so embarassing, especially since I have a slow server that makes it difficult to delete on time. am still Grateful to God that I can browse anyways.
    WLW is really helping me but sometimes you just want to SCREAM at it... lol

    Yes, I know, Blogspot can be quite slow and even acts weird on me sometimes. That's why I've preferred to go with even for my other blog.

    It's quite easy to start at; you can even do a one-click import of all your posts here into your new site.

    The downside, though, is that is not so flexible to allow you to put up so many widgets and stuff like BlogRush or a chatbox. :(


  9. Isaiah, That is so correct, but what can I do? don't want to move to wordpress and start all over again. I almost moved to WP but the Lord told me to stay where I am so I obeyed and got some interesting titbits of info that helped me improve the blog.
    Godbless you my Brother though you are thousand of miles away from me yet you are so close. lest I forget I saw the heated debate goimg on on your blog yesterday and I said to myself... this is so hot, even you had to standby like the rest of us... lol

    You don't have to lose your posts if you move to WordPress. They have a function to import all your posts and associated comments to the platform. :)

    But if the Lord said to stay, I'm sure He has a purpose to ask you to do so.

    I didn't dive into the debate because I thought it wouldn't be appropriate. It got hot and it got a little uncomfortable for me, because both Daniel and Sidharth are brothers that I respect and love.

    In fact, I told Sidharth that, and he understood. Both were making good points, but at the same time both were trying so hard to push their points forward that they mistakenly read into the other's words as being wrong.

    For me, both are right -- just that they come from different angles approaching God's love and holiness.

    Thank you for your kind words of encouragement, sister. You are dear to me! Love ya, sis!

  12. Same here Brother, I agree with your not taking sides cos in this Christian race, it is only God that can tell who is right or wrong. All we can do is stay and listen to the Holy Ghost to guide us... some say this is right... some that is so wrong, atimes when I get to that position I remember God said Judgement is His so am not perturbed for I corinthians 13:9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part,
    for instance I read a post on sidhart"s blog that he was saying something like pleading the blood of Jesus is wrong though I have not read the full post to be sure that was exactly what he was saying before I make my comments on his blog, but I tell you that what the blood of Jesus Christ has done for people all over the world the testimonies of them man cannot comprehend... there are other issues too I have stumbled across on some blogs too that i do not agree with but can't go into them now brother. will send you an email to tell you how and why for now.
    Love ya 2
    Godbless you in Jesus Mighty Name Amen

  13. Channelofhealing, this is so beautiful poem, and it is so true. We tend to dwell on the bad things or hurt sometimes, and water it and water it and it will grow. As much as I sound good sometimes, I have those bad sides too - but you have done great job teaching me many things, and this poem is one of them. Thanks for sharing, and hope everything is okay with you too. I shared this with my family. Anna :)

  15. Oh Anna am so guilty of that too(the watering part till it grows) most times... I tell you this blog is about my own weaknesses, my life nad what is going on around me at the time, most especially what the Holy Spirit has laid in my heart to post, I tell you this blog judges me at times when I lose focus cos at the inception of this blog the Holy Spirit said to me, "it is not about you but about Me" hence the anonymity.
    at times after posting I go back and say to God, Lord teach me... let me be like what I write and post, so Anna gOD IS THE ONE WHO CHANGES US WE ALL struggle daily.
    Love you dedictaion to this blog may God Almighty Bless you abundantly in Jesus Mighty Name Amen.

  16. Channelofhealing, this is good sign, at least we are both on the right track and hope to water more of a good stuff, lol. Hope all your troubles will go away, and thanks for sharing, even they are just bits and pieces. God Bless, Anna :)

  17. Amen and Amen, thanks Anna
