Re – digging Her Well

Don’t you find when you feel that you’ve been blessed, there seem to be problem looming. People trying to take your joy away on a mission known as “undercover joy burst”.

She has come so far. You should have seen her back when it all started.

In spite of all that was going on in her personal life, the Lord had blessed her indeed. But now it appears difficulties, that was about to accumulate to a nervous breakdown seems to be knocking on her door. People has started to cover up, what she had done, had quarrelled and opposed her in every opportunity possible, and now she was facing ruin. Each time she faced a difficulty she attributed it to her past mistakes and maybe she didn’t deserve to be happy. She didn’t realise that all she needed was to re-dig her “well” this last time. She needed to remember that the first time she asked God to forgive her of her past He did and He said He would remember them no more (Isa. 38 vs. 17; Isa 43 vs. 25). The Lord Jesus was shamed as he lay on that cross so her guilt and shame had been removed (Isa. 25 vs. 8), the plans her enemies had for her was not going to succeed (Isa. 19 vs. 3). He wanted her to draw closer to Him, push and pray harder than she had ever done, for her breakthrough was but moments away. He wanted to bless her just as He did Isaac when he encountered oppositions (Gen. 26 vs.12 -25). Just as Isaac dug another well, No one quarrelled with him anymore and the Lord gave him room to flourish in the land. Finally the guilt scales that had blinded her eyes were lifted. She dug and pushed one last time and no one quarrelled with her anymore. She was finally settled by God in every area of her life. She now has a family and a very good job with room to flourish. She had atlast found happiness, happiness she never felt worthy of. But alas she was happy. The other forms of happiness she sort had sorrow in it, but the one the Lord had given her had no sorrow (Prov. 10 vs. 22; Isa. 60 vs. 20; John 16 vs. 22)

What is holding you back? Don’t let the guilt of the past have an impact on your future. It did in this case, but the Lord said NO. She didn’t deserve God’s grace, but He still forgave her and blessed her. I also need to re-dig my wells – I think you all need an update on my pastor friend. I will post on it the next time. Stay blessed all.

LOASCM,

I never knew you had a url, just linked you from Luminus blog. I have read ur comments on other blogs, so I am not suprised about what I see here.... :)

...what i'll like to add to this post is, What I love about God is His Mercy..I know about His Love and His Grace, But when you remember His mercy you know, no matter how far or deep you fall, His mercy is never ending...so you run right back...Never let the evil-one tell you your Father will never receive you, cos His mercy is always avaiable when you ask it.

Stay bless.

azuka said...

Forgive me, LOASCM,

I've gotten into trouble before from making assumptions.

The Life of a Stranger called me said...

@azuka - no problem - LOL.

Luminus said...

Babe,
Thanks for all the loving over on my spot.

I'm so happy that you've allowed his light to shine on you and speak healing and comfort to your soul.

The proof of this healing is the fact that you can use your experience to counsel other who are hurting and going through it all like they're all alone in the world and nobody's got it as bad as them.

I don't need to tell you how much HE loves you, you've figured it out by yourself, I'm so darn proud of you sister.

Uzo said...

Very interesting....I need to reflect on this one

Dipo Tepede said...

Thanx dear!

Really deep and thought-provoking, LOASCM, thank you. God is real o.

Discombobulated Diva said...

what else can I say, but this was a great post... very unlifting... sometimes its nice to hear a reminder like this... you can't let your past mistakes hold you down... one of my favorite quotes:
"Waste not fresh tears over old griefs…"

I'm slowly learning to leave the past in past and to learn from those mistakes while not letting them direct my future...

~DD
