Just like a burn has a process in healing so does our hearts.
If you peel a scab on a burn too quickly you will cut the healing process short. This begins the process over again.
Same with healing our hearts. If you move on prematurely and don’t give yourself time to heal you will continue “bleeding while moving forward.” Really you will still be in a state of complacency. You have not moved at all as the process was not fully completed.
If you continue to allow yourself to stay in that state you are only fooling yourself. They say insanity is doing the same thing over and over but expecting a different result. So many cliches come to mind. One that is popular is “When you know better you do better”. Sometimes it was hard for me to believe I could do better. I mean i would hear people say ‘oh you are too pretty to still be single’ or I don’t know what he doesn’t see in you’. Honestly their guess was as good as mine. I pondered at times why in relationships what “I wanted”didn’t work out then i was reminded of this scripture:
“But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.”
Isaiah 40:31 NLT
If we allow ourselves to wait and go through the process of healing we will eventually receive what God truly has for us.
