Life is a journey of experiences. Every moment leaves an imprint on our psyche…on our soul. Sometimes, the imprint enriches our life. Sometimes, the mark feels like a blemish…a stain. The emotional pain of negative imprints can be motivating to energize an individual to bring about positive changes in their life. For some, the emotional pain is a dark and seemingly bottomless pit. For others, the mark is an ember, fueled by criticism, insults, and maltreatment. How is it then, that some can choose to shrug off the opinions and actions, while others are tormented by the relentless echoes of the past?
If you are facing this Thanksgiving with emotional pain, know there is hope and healing.
“The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with his love, He will rejoice over you with singing.” Zephaniah 3:17
Isn’t it awesome that God takes great delight in His child, you! He wants to quiet you with His love. He rejoices over you with singing. During this thanksgiving, my hope for you is that you take a moment with your heavenly Father. Thank Him for the delight He takes in you, and enjoy the peace of His love.
