Inner Healing? What?
In a world of quick fixes, computers, iphones, money, media, music, quick bandages…what the heck is inner healing? Unfortunately, I must say that our society has become FAKE. Everything is fake, from smiles to greetings, to plastic surgery to makeup, to cars and blings, to bags to words. Words?
For example: Person walks by, “heyyy how are you doing?” with wide smile. “ummm, well not that well”. Person has already walked by, not caring what his reply is.
Get the point? No one seems to really care or listen anymore. Is it any wonder that all of us carry heavy emotional baggages? From guilt, shame, unforgiveness, bitterness, hatred, low self- esteem, depression, to anything you can imagine. It is eating us alive like worms just creating a sick cave of rotting apples and eggs, it is smelling like dead fish from ancient days.
Now, I really have no reason for posting this Afro ken picture. But I almost like to think a dog is so much more healthy. But then of course, a dog is not a human being. Side note…haha.
My favorite bible verse talks about this: “The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners…” Isaiah 61:1
Now I think many of you imagined “Captives” as literally captives in prisons or whatever. But this is what I imagine now…captives that are captive to sin, guilt, shame, whatever I listed above. The first time I experienced healing in years was when a respected mentor prayed healing over me. Mainly, “for forgiveness”. For some odd reason, I felt this well of emotion like flooding, like a taifung, like tsunami breaking out of my eyes, nose, and everything that can give off snot and yucky residues. I didn’t realize I had so much pain from the hurts that I had gently covered with blankets of achievements, self- pride, and yes, did I mention achievements already? Sigh, I am so much more Asian than I thought.
For some reason, if anything, I can handle fake brands, because out of all things, it is not faking a person or personality. Okay, maybe it does. Whatever, I don’t buy fake brands.
Enough said- I’m excited for what God’s going to do. Peace friends.
