Some wounds are so painful, it’s hard not to be overwhelmed physically, emotionally, and spiritually. The enemy tries to twist your anguish into an unsatisfiable obsession to know why, and paralyzes you in the fear of what worse could happen. You sink into a pit, the weights of fear, bitterness, and self–pity dragging you down deeper and deeper.
When Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life, and no one comes to the Father except through Me,” it wasn’t just a theological statement about getting to heaven. It was an invitation to experience the justice, peace, and joy of God now and always. He knows your pain, and He knows how to comfort, heal, and restore you. He knows how to love you back to life. Sometimes you have to put down your “why” to receive that love, because it’s become anchored to those weights. If that seems difficult, you’re right. It’s really not possible on your own, and that’s the point. The first step in healing is learning to receive God’s grace and strength to let it those weights go. As soon as you do, you can fly again.
