HEALING JOURNAL

5 Steps towards healing from when you feel are not enough.

Many years ago my Grandma Rose self published a devotional that she gave freely to others.  In 2009, my sister and dear friend gave me a devotional journal that they wrote to help me in my journey.  Since then, I've worked with my mom and sister to write many other devotional journals for others. 

 

2020 was a crazy year for all of us. It helped me personally re-evaluate my priorities and purpose. God gave me a desire to expand my reach, so I created the Enough 4 Me Project. As you embark on your enough journey, let God's love and power is enough to transform your mind to believe you are enough and live intentionally because of it.  Here's an excerpt of the healing journal that you can download below.

If you search for stages of healing, you’ll find many variances. Here’s what I personally found in my journey.

  • Stage 1: Grief and denial of the circumstances. A common thought is if I just ignore it, it’ll go away. Or if I address it and the person says, “I’m sorry. It won’t happen again.” You can believe them. 8

  • Stage 2: Anger with someone or even God when it happens the first time and then again...

  • Stage 3: Fight, Flight, or Bargaining

  • Stage 4: Clinging to hope vs detaching, depression, and doubts based on an uncertain future.

  • Stage 5: Reconciliation or Forgiveness.

    • Reconciliation exists when true repentance occurs and accountability measures are put into place.

    • Forgiveness and acceptance occurs when we need to move on, but we trust God to deal with the sins committed and unwillingness to change rather than try to take matters into our own hands.

 

Wherever you are in the journey, make sure that God’s Word and godly counsel are integral parts of your decision making. My prayer is that the resources and Bible Study/devotions I’ve created along with my healing journey will help you. I will warn you, Satan, doesn’t not want you to heal. He wants you to wallow in self-pity, thoughts that you’ll never be enough, and lies that God can’t use you. If you believe that he's won, you aren’t reaching your full potential for God.

 

As you heal, you become a threat, an enemy. He wants to discourage you and will do everything he can to cause a spiral of self-doubt, negative talk, and bad memories. God gives us tools to equip us for these moments. You are not alone. You are loved by God, and He has given you everything you need for a life of godliness. (1 Peter 1:3)

 

Ephesians 6: 10-18 talks about the full armor of God. Let me take a minute to pray with you before you start this journey.

 

Abba, Father, I pray that you will help me to believe your truth rather than Satan’s lies. So as I prepare to seek your healing, I put on the belt of truth. You have told us if we confess our sins you are faithful and just to forgive our sins and cleanse us (1 John 1:9). Please forgive me for… Please help me forgive others just like you’ve forgiven me. Thank you for giving me the helmet of salvation and the breastplate of righteousness. As I take up the shield of faith, help me to not live in the past, but be ready for what you want me to do today. Give me eyes to see, ears to hear, and feet of peace, ready for the opportunities you give me today. I need you. Your love is enough for me to heal every hurt and every need. I need the sword of the spirit to remember the words of the Bible and live in the fruits of the spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. (Galatians 5:22-23) Help me to believe your truths over Satan’s lies. Thank you for what you are doing in me and what you’re going to do through me. In Jesus Name- Amen!
