There must’ve been something different about my body language that gave away my shock.
What do you do when your PAST comes after you?
David and I were taking a drive one Friday… just wandering through town. I think we were unconsciously looking for a snow cone stand… but we ended up in a familiar neighborhood.
I started reminiscing out loud as we drove down the different streets. And that’s when I saw it; a house that had burned down.
David knew something was different. He asked, “Are you okay? You seem a little shook.”
My mind whirred. Do I say it out loud? “That was the house I was molested in.” I said.
David answered in a split second, as if his reply was straight from heaven itself. “God burned that house down so you’d never have to see it again.”
What happened to me can NEVER happen to any other little girl in THAT house ever again! God took the place of my pain and let me know that I don’t have to be reminded of that anymore.
I went to bed that night and slept like a BABY.
It’s not that our past will never poke its ugly head up for us to face. But when it does, it takes FAITH to stand there and not let it rock you.
It pleases God when you do just that.
Trusting God for the strength you don’t have and the forgiveness you haven’t known how to give is the beginning of HEALING.
Do you have something in your past that keeps coming back to taunt you? Will you consent to give it to God, today? (“Y” or “N”)
