365 Raw: Day 27 with “Emotions”

I woke without an alarm again on Day 27. This morning’s dread was about today being a really long day. “Lord, help me,” was my cry. As you’ll see in my food log, “long” ended up being replaced with severe detox.

For a moment I think, “why didn’t God protect me?”… “Why didn’t someone come to my defense?” And then it occurs to me, that I would not feel the way that I do about so many things had the protection been there. These hurts caused me to feel more deeply. The very thing that the enemy tried to attack through things outside of my control: my emotions, my sensitivity, my passion, those are the things that are all the more magnified now.

Yes, I am still on the road to healing, and not everyone understands that. Some people think healing is instantaneous… and maybe it is for them, but for those of us who have layer upon layer to dissect, we need patient understanding. Fortunately, God knows how deep to go at any one time, so while the tears flow with each layer, I know my tears are safe with Him.
