Where Healing and Loving Life Intersect

I’m sitting here getting choked up with all sorts of emotions. I’m elated, nervous, sad, thrilled, and frustrated all at the same time.

I feel like I’m called to help people, though, today it may only be through me helping myself – because that’s all I feel I can do.

I feel lost and very much found at the same time. I feel I’m questioning SO much, yet already have the answers. I feel I’m sitting on the verge of something major with no clue how to get there.

However, I think that’s where God wants us – vulnerable. Trusting. Alert. Seeking.

He wants to give us a glimpse and have us trust that He will get us there.

What frustrates and saddens me is that I still question and fight doubt.

What thrills, elates, and even makes me nervous is the vision of what’s to come.

It’s as though I’m on the edge of a cliff and can easily look back, crawl to obvious safety, and know I’ll be ok… but just ok.

OR…

I can take a giant leap of faith and know that even though I can’t see the thing that will catch me – still MOVE and trust that it’s there.

It’s exciting and nerve-racking at the same time!

And it would far exceed ANY safety behind me.

I love life.

I love the thrill of it. The changes. The possiblities.

I live to love life.

Have you ever heard that nothing happens by coincidence? Or maybe you’ve heard it this way – when you are open to getting the answers, they come to you?

Not only have I heard that A LOT lately, but so many things have happened, almost an absurd amount, that it CANNOT be coincidence.

I believe that when you are listening for divine purpose and calling, it shows up – sometimes right on your doorstep.

It can also come through e-mail, a video, social media, a book, a neighbor, a friend, a friend of a friend, or even a stranger.

I know God is doing a healing work on me, in my heart and life.

I know that He has greatness for me.

I know that if I stay pursuing Him and His plans for my life, He will take me to amazing places.

Of course there will be bumps along the way, however, choosing how to deal with them makes all the difference.

He has expanded my vision for my life FAR BEYOND anything I could have dreamt up myself!

To Him be the glory…

Did you have a time in your life when you felt both the need to get stronger and healed, yet you could feel a shift in the air for something bigger and better? I’d love to hear your story! Share in the comments below.

  1. You’re at a season in your life many of us have experienced. That’s when God crafts us in the Wilderness to eventually propel us into the Open. And you already have the answer or Vision of what’s to come. Questioning and Doubting is a good thing as long as it’s turned into Faith. And Faith in Action is you taking the Leap. Go for it when you can hear God’s Voice telling you to jump. And whilst You can’t hear Him, continue in the same direction.

    Much Love from London.

  2. When I look back at how things have happened in my life, where it has made meaningful shifts, it’s been when I’ve finally let go and released the outcome to “someone else.” The thought that we can control everything is one of our greatest tools for staying stuck. So when you’re standing at the precipice of something new and the energy around you is whispering “leap,” taking the proverbial leap in full faith. You’re in good hands …

    1. Sharon, I couldn’t have replied better to myself if I had tried!!! You hit the nail on the head! Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts and taking the time to write me this comment. I greatly appreciate it and YOU!

  3. I have been on an emotional roller coaster, for a few days – trying to do God’s work on His behalf. I am usually a strong person but I cam to the realisation that sometimes that strong person needs to be human. Taking a step back, I was able to Let go and let God.
    Thank you for this timely article as proof that one is not alone.

    1. Oh, Yetunde, you are DEFINITELY not alone! I have been there for about 2 weeks – and even had days I wake up in a funk I can’t shake… which I know is the start of lies trying to fill my head and push me into thinking only of my feelings and myself – not the world around me and where my focus REALLY needs to be. Even the strongest of us has off, questioning days… however, it’s choosing to press through the funky feelings and the lies to get to the other side that makes us overcomers! Thanks so much for your comment and thoughts.

  4. Reading this truly gave me goose bumps Jessica, because if I were to write about how I felt about life right now, this would be it. Vulnerable, excited, scared but faith-filled. It’s that combination of not knowing what the future holds, but knowing that God is taking us to a new place as we heal that is both thrilling and terrifying at the same time. Thank you Jessica for sharing with such an open heart.

    1. Carolyn, that’s awesome! I love it when God puts people together who can fuel each other and feed off each other – some going through the same things and others helping those who have been through it before. Thanks for your thoughts and sharing your heart and where you are in life, too. It’s an exciting time… for SURE!!!

  5. Jessica,

    I love reading your posts. We’re like kindred spirits. You put to words the internal conversations between my heart, mind, and soul. God did not mean for us to live in turmoil. He made us for peace. I am so thankful that we are safe to trust Him with our questions and doubts because He turns them around for good and deepens our roots in Him. I don’t know where I’d be without that kind of God and that kind of connection. He calls me to step out on the water, but He doesn’t let me sink.

    1. Thank you, Marvia! I’m so glad you can relate to this and get meaning out of it for your own life. There are plenty of days I don’t know what I’m going to write about – it seems to just be flowing from where I am in life, too, right now. So glad I’m not alone in this adventure!!

  6. Hi Jessica,

    I just came back to your blog because I wanted to introduce you to my niece, so I sent her your link. Your story is so powerful because you are being yourself, being real, and your transparency opens the window for God’s message to shine through you.

    Sometimes you may not realize that even on your worst day, when you live a transparent – authentic – life, God’s Light is shining brightly… and you are helping others, just by standing… by remaining faithful.

    I love life, too… it’s like this strong, powerful River whose bends and twists – even the waterfalls – are unpredictable but thrilling. I’ve learned not to avoid the white water or even the falls, because God is the source of this River and we always safe in His love and care.

    Blessings to you and your family today! <3

    1. Awesome!! I’d love to “meet” her :) Thank you, as always, for your kind words of encouragement and strength. A river is a very good description. Time to jump in with both feet!!
