Healing the Heart

I saw this photo and immediately thought about my journey, my healing! If you were to look at healing from a "physical" aspect, I think this is what you would imagine; your heart on the floor, and you healing it by hand; sewing it together stitch by stitch...  but in real, that is not possible - but if only it were that easy! I think healing has to come from within. Healing comes from strength, it comes from hope, it comes from knowing that there is something on the other side of where it is you are at now. I think healing and hope are the same thing. I think when people "want" to heal, they have hope for something better. It's hard to heal when you see no hope. You can't walk down a road that has road blocks, you need to find a way around, and you have to allow yourself to walk down a path that has potential for being something more; to keep you going forward.

I am a fighter.. I always believe that no matter what, I will get through it, and the only way I can get through it, is through hope. Hope is also found through "goodness", like written below. Wisdom, hope, goodness, and faith all equal to healing. When things seem too tough to handle, I sit and try and think about the thing I have hope in.... my goal is always to find more hope, and if I can't find hope, I look to find goodness; to give me wisdom, which gives me more hope inside.

I believe God gives us hope - I believe that is his gift to us.. we just have to know when, where and how to use it, and most importantly, what to listen for.
