“God, I invite your searching gaze into my heart. Examine me through and through; find out everything that may be hidden within me.
Put me to the test and sift through all my anxious cares.
See if there is any path of pain I’m walking on, and lead me back to your glorious, everlasting way— the path that brings me back to you.”
(Psalms 139:23-24 TPT)
I believe, Father God, You are unlocking areas of my heart that I have kept shut up and locked tight for a very long time. I’ve often used the words emotionally constipated to describe how I “feel.” I heard phrases early in life like “don’t tell,” “keep quiet,” “this is our secret.” Sadly, since shame took hold of those words, pieces of my heart and voice were Locked Up and Kept Quiet. I didn’t even talk to You about what that part of my heart was feeling, which is interesting; since beginning at a very early age, I spoke to You about almost everything.
This thought is overwhelming me right now, ”even though I locked those areas up and wasn’t willing to go into that space, You were already there preparing a place for my healing.”
That is who You are, and that is what You do. You are loving me back into wholeness so that I can be UNLOCKED and FREE!
“It’s impossible to disappear from you or to ask the darkness to hide me,
For your presence is everywhere, bringing light into my night.”
(Psalms 139:11 TPT)
