Triumphant Victorious Reminders
Inspired by The Holy Spirit
Written by; Teresa Criswell
The things said in time past so flippantly and carelessly. The things that are paid forward with the cliches of old. For instance, who came up with the saying, "Time heals"?
"Time heals"...Really?!?! Tell that to a precious elderly person on their death bed, who is still imprisoned within their soul with past hurts, offenses, tragedies and brokenness as though the tragedy of years past happened yesterday!
Or what about the ruins of a city? Does "time" pick up the debris of a town that once stood? Does "time" come alongside a child who lost both parents and hold them and embrace them? Does "time" give food and clothe you when you couldn't do anything but weep? NO!!! Time does nothing but bulldoze right through us - it flies with no consequences to pay - time only spends - it makes no investments, it quite simply goes right through us.
It is evidently clear that time heals no one! Here's the truth; the truth is - It's what we do WITHIN time that determines whether healing is received or not! And most importantly, it is "Who" we get to say, "Yes" to within time that gives us grace to get through this life when we could not do it on our own.
So here it is, time alone is about the "luck of the draw", it holds no one accountable and time alone produces loneliness. Yet, time with Almighty God allows us to utilize time as a well oiled machine to get things accomplished on this earth - bringing and giving healing and forgiveness to the broken who have caused others to be brokenhearted and sets the captives free - but not only sets them free but teaches us how to lean on God to STAY in HIS FREEDOM!!!
