My beloved one, I know there are moments in your life that have been marked by trauma and grief, fear and loneliness, pain and loss. My question today is will you partner with me in changing the narrative you keep of these moments?
You have the choice to choose how you reflect upon these moments. I do not dismiss or belittle the courage it takes to flip these memories around and look at them differently. It is your choice how you remember these times and the impact they had upon you. I want to show you today where I was in the midst of your hardest moments. When you can recognise where I was in these moments – seeing how I upheld and fought for you – then you can begin to change the narrative. From that shift, you can begin to speak of the victories you have found in me, of the freedom you walk in, of my everlasting faithfulness.
When you can see with clarity where I was in the midst of it all, then the pieces of your testimony can fall into place, becoming a narrative of wisdom and power, glory and love.
Close your eyes and think of a time in your life that you struggle to understand and make peace with. Ask Jesus to show you a picture or a memory of that time. Next, ask Jesus to show you where he was in relation to you within that memory. From there, begin to ask questions around how Jesus fought for you in the midst of this. What does he have to say about it? What clarity does he want to share with you? Spend some time journaling what he shares with you.
Psalm 49:15 (TPT)
But I know the loving God will redeem my soul, raising me up from the dark power of death, taking me as his bridal partner.
Psalm 91:4 (NIV)
He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
