He Heals My Brokenness {Blog Tag}

Hello! โค I hope you’re having a beautiful day. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve been working on coming up with post ideas recently, and one topic I’ve wanted to write about for a long time are the different things the Lord has rescued me from. When I realized that I could incorporate this post idea into a new blog tag, that’s what I decided to do! In this post, I am happy to introduce to you the second blog tag I’ve created (the first was The Fall Tag!). It’s calledย He Heals My Brokenness.ย I share four things He has rescued (and is currently rescuing) me from, as well as invite anyone who’s interested to participate!

Explanation:

One of the most beautiful ways we can share our testimonies is by opening up about what the Lord has rescued us from! This tag was created by Maggie @ Dreaming of Guatemala to provide an outlet for bloggers to share how the Lord is healing us and making us new. This can include the hardships that first led us to the Lord, as well as things He is still working on healing within us today.

Rules:

  • Shoutout to the person who tagged you / left an open invitation.
  • Include the badge, rules, and explanation in your post.
  • Tag it under HeHealsMyBrokenness in the Reader.
  • Share with your readers all of the different things (as many as you’d like to talk about) that the Lord has rescued (or is currently rescuing) you from.
  • Tag 5 different bloggers who you think would like to participate and leave an open invitation for anyone else interested!

What The Lord Has Rescued / Is Rescuing Me From

{Insomnia} – This is the main reason why my heart was open to following the Lord in the beginning. Starting in the summer of 2009, my brain started making it impossible for me to fall asleep at night, bringing to my attention various anxieties and things that frightened me more at night than they did during the day. There were times when I’d be up past midnight, unable to calm my mind enough so that I could sleep. I felt so alone in those times – my parents comforted me as best they could, but what I was facing wasn’t something another person could rescue me from. In January of 2012, I really began listening to the lyrics of Christian songs, and I realized that different singers who sang about the Lord were at peace because of their awareness of His presence – He is always with them. The more songs I listened to, the more I desired to have that kind of relationship with the Lord myself. The Lord used that music to begin my walk with Him, and since that day, insomnia lost its grip on me. When I go to sleep every night after reading my Bible and praying, I know that the Lord is by my side, protecting me always. His presence alone rescued me from my worst fears.

{Various fears} – I used to be deathly scared of tornadoes, sinkholes, and other natural disasters, but now that I know my life is in the Lord’s hands, I’m able to remember that He is greater than any storm (both physical and emotional) that has ever come my way. Another thing is that I’ve never liked anything medical, as needles make me nervous and the details behind surgeries gives me anxiety, but more than once, the Lord caused me to remain calm when undergoing surgery and other procedures that would have really bothered me in the past.

{Loneliness} – I spent my preteen and teenage years searching for companionship from my peers. However, I didn’t realize that the type of closeness I was seeking couldn’t be found in another person; the Lord placed that desire within me so that I would seek Him.ย He is my closest Friend. โค

{Indecision/Perfectionism} – These two things tie in together, because it’s my perfectionist tendencies that cause me to be indecisive. Because I’m always trying to do things perfectly, I’ll become indecisive about what the “right” decision to make is in so many different circumstances. It’s an awful cycle that exhausts and discourages me. The first three things I mentioned above are things the Lord has already rescued me from, but this one is something He’s still working on healing within me. It has taken me a long time to accept that I am not perfect, but He is. I’m learning how to be happy with what I’m able to do, even when I may not feel like it’s the “perfect” decision to make.
