Last night i was out with my husband eating sushi. At the table next to us was a young woman and she started talking to one of the sushi chefs about how her husband had just died from cancer. She couldn’t have been more then 30 years old. She was talking about how she was sad, but she was young~and time heals. Time heals. Time heals.
I just listened and thought……and today, while i was listening to a song by Third Day, God spoke to my heart. The lyrics that brought me a moment of clarity, i would call it, went like this: “When you think your life is shattered and there’s no way to be fixed again, love heals your heart.”
I just thought on that. I haven’t felt “time” heal anything in my life. Time has never healed my hurts. Christ Jesus, the Lord–the God of all the universe—the one who created me, knows me better then anyone, HE is the one who has the power to heal my hurts. He’s the only one. Time is just time. He created time-and he has power over it.
I know that “time heals” in a way is just a saying…and i know i’ve probably used it in my life’s situations before; but I don’t want to anymore because it’s just empty words. It has no true meaning. It can’t save you from your pain. But, i know that God can. I have experienced it. I know He is real and He is in my life and He cares. I love that He is beside me when i cry~his heart breaking for me. He is real. He uses the things that hurt us in our lives to help others, to relate to them, encourage them…be there for them. I believe he uses things that hurt us to one day bring him the glory. And he heals our hearts.
