Believe - By Jackie H.

My blog this month is entitled simply, ‘Believe’. As I was praying about what to write this month, this is what the Lord tucked in my heart. It begs the question, ‘do you believe’? That can be a loaded question, but I will be more specific - do you believe that God can heal your brokenness? You might be believing that you’re not worthy more than you might be believing that God can't heal your brokenness. I have been there, and quite honestly, can still struggle with that same lie sometimes. 

If you are a victim of sexual abuse, you feel that brokenness and know what I’m talking about. The thing is, we are all broken and need God’s touch - the healing that only the Savior can give.  

In Hebrews 11:6 it states that, ‘without faith it is impossible to please God...’, but the good news is that we all have at least a tiny bit of faith to offer! Matthew 17:20 says that,’...if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it WILL move. Nothing will be impossible for you’. (emphasis mine)  God is saying that all you have to have is a little bit of faith in order to believe and it releases His power to do whatever is needed in your circumstances.  

If you have been a victim of sexual abuse of some kind, low self-esteem (unworthiness), is often times an unwanted traveling companion on this journey of healing. So, once again, I ask - ‘do you believe’??
God believes in you and He alone has all the healing you need. You’re not too far gone, your sin is not too great to be forgiven, you are not unworthy. I would encourage you to believe with that mustard seed of faith that’s inside of you. God will meet you where you’re at. Let the healing begin!
