The human person has an infinite capacity for self-delusion and little innate capacity for authentic self-knowledge.
Even so, as we draw near to Him in prayer and reflection, His light pierces our darkness and reveals the path of a liberating Godward self-awareness. This life-giving but stinging clarity reveals our profound need and draws our heart to cry out for forgiveness and healing.
This movement to humility and reliance upon God discovers the outstretched hand of Jesus that not only draws us out of the abyss of sin but then to His gentle embrace. It is near His compassionate heart that He whispers, “I know you. I love you. I will heal you… if you will allow it.”
Don’t run. Lean into your pain. You will find Him there. “Be not afraid.” He has proven Himself worthy of your trust.
