    “What if His glory is what brings me healing?”

    Something in me aches when I read that. I think it’s that need for more of Him.

    Your writing always goes further than just my mind. Thank you.

      Hmm… more of Him. May we all learn to answer that ache by clinging to Him.

  2. This is so beautiful! How often I need to remember this – that He alone covers all failures and brings healing to all the broken places. How often I need to remember how wonderful He is – how I ought to *want* Him! Yet how often instead do I find myself distracted by the things of this world? How often do I find myself thinking of anything and everything but the One who gives me life? I *want* to want Him, to want Him more than anything else, but, honestly, *do* I? Sometimes I do – and those are wonderful, joyful, happy times, whatever the circumstances in my life may be. A lot of the time I don’t, and that needs to change, but *I cannot change myself*. Only He can do that. I am totally dependent on Him.
    Thank you for this wonderful reminder of who He is, and how much I really need Him, need to *want* Him. Also, thank you for your honesty. I really appreciate it when people share what really goes on inside their hearts.

    1. We want to want him and isn’t it wonderful that the fact that we do means he is drawing us? It stuns me to think about. Thank you for visiting. May your day be blessed.

  3. Beautiful words….reminds me of the song by Laura Story.

    In our weakness His grace is made perfect.

  4. I tagged you over at my place. Hope to see you there.

  5. Me too, Natasha! Beautiful, real post again. Your writing is convicting, inspiring, and filled with truth.

  7. When I read that part of Job, I, too, am humbled. I hope all is well with you.

    1. Thank you, friend. <3 My husband has been quoting Job a lot lately. I keep clinging to the promise that in the end, everything was restored to him.

  8. I WANT HIM!!

    This is a great post. I have been there so many times Natasha! I think if we just keep turning back to Him everything will turn out alright.

    1. Yay! 🙂 His promises don’t change, thankfully, even when we struggle. Amen to turning back!

    1. Katie, you’re one of those that God has used to heal me. <3

  9. Wow. Our pastor spoke on these exact verses yesterday! Loved the perspective and I love the promise that that same hands that wound through correction, bind up and heal!

    1. It is one of the most vital lessons I have learned as a Christian. Don’t you just love it when God starts displaying truths in every direction?

  10. This is beautiful. God will truly pick us up in the darkest of times and set us straight on the path. I love that He never leaves us. Thank you for sharing. I found your blog at a time when I really need to be reminded of this. God bless you, Natasha.

    1. Is this not the most precious part of being a follower? I am so thankful that you have been blessed through my offerings.
