“But Jesus answered and said, “Permit even this.” And He touched his ear and healed him.”
Luke 22:51 NKJV
Midday break. Took a long one.
I had visualized in my head some back rubbing support as I sat down for lunch to digest life!
I get to breathe again.
As I was sitting in the wooden seat waiting for my sushi I took the restaurant napkin and pinned it to my eyes tight.
My glasses were on the table.
Cell phone down and blacked out.
The sushi she brought me with my soup.
I was waiting for that imaginary hug.
That hand rubbing my back as the napkin was still pressed to my lids and the tears of frustration came uncontrollably down my face.
I pressed even more.
But no hand.
And no one telling me, “it’s going to be ok!”
We all long for that touch.
The last thing I should have done was touch that blue F icon to see the notifications!
What was that for?!?
It’s an add to the bad.
Sometimes people have a strong tendency to remind you of what you do not have.
Yeah! That’s definitely another platform for that—can I be honest about that.
It’s everything your not!
Its this land of the best or worst of people.
Not so much of a strong motivation many times.
That’s what I wrote down coming back from lunch.
Everything that you are not!
So to be positive I have to write down and counterattack these negative words with good ones.
Everything that you are!
Yet sometimes silly
I am more than a conqueror!
That’s everything that I am!
That’s everything that He tells me!
That’s what I got to focus on!
To believe the best about myself!
Not the negatives that people want to push on me.
Try saying some life in the “correction”
But the focus for me cannot, will not and shall not be everything that I am not!!!!
My focus will be everything that I am through Christ who strengthens me!!!
That is what He always wants us to focus on.
That touch that brings life. That Word that speaks life! It’s the health and healing we need to know everything is going to be okay.
