By His wounds, we are HEALED!

Psalm 32:3-5
3 When I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long.
4 For day and night your hand was heavy upon me; my strength was sapped as in the heat of summer.
5 Then I acknowledged my sin to you and did not cover up my iniquity. I said, "I will confess
my transgressions to the LORD "— and you forgave the guilt of my sin.

Are you holding in a secret? Are you holding in something that you've done or has been done to you? Does it continue to hurt you because you can't let it out? It's like vomit. You know, when you're sick, you just know that you'll feel better if you would just throw up. Your body was designed to get rid of stuff that doesn't belong in there. I think our hearts are the same way. We feel relieved to get rid of stuff that we've been holding in. It's like breaking free of chains that are holding us down.

I don't know about you, but sometimes I just stand in awe of God's grace because of His love. If you have something you're holding inside. Let it out, and let God in.

Isaiah 53:5 5 But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.

HILLSONG is without a doubt, my favorite Praise & Worship music! My oldest daughter Jennifer introduced them to me about 8-0 years ago and I have been hooked ever since!

That should read 8-9 years ago, I didn't proofread it, sorry.

A Dear friend of mine says that 90% of the pain int this world comes from "holding on"...I think he may be right...let it Christ...good advice.
Sounds like you had a wonderful Valentines day.
