Sometimes Healing is Just a Groan Away

Feeling bad about a bad choice you made?
Feeling sorry you didn’t speak up when you should have?
Feeling down about neglected relationships when you chose work over the people you love?
Feeling distressed about the state of the world?

Me too.
And often, I ask myself, what can I do?
The answer, I know, starts with dealing rightly with myself first.

And Max Lucado, once again, says it all…

The blood of Jesus, God’s Son, cleanses us from every sin. 1 John 1:7

The cleansing is not a promise for the future but a reality in the present. Let a speck of dust fall on the soul of a saint, and it is washed away. Let a spot of filth land on the heart of God’s child, and the filth is wiped away…

Our Savior kneels down and gazes upon the darkest acts of our lives. But rather than recoil in horror, he reaches out in kindness and says, “I can clean that if you want.”
