My time with Lana, going through Emotional Healing Prayer, was just that--very emotional. We walked through my whole life and brought understanding and closure to so many areas. We released those who had wronged me and I was able to offer a deep forgiveness to each one. It was exhausting and unbelievably freeing all at the same time.
"He has broken many chains that bound my heart. I am now able to be more transparent than ever."
Because of what happened during those two days, I am moving more quickly through other layers of my journey. I feel, because of our walking through my Lifetime Prayer, old wounds no longer have a grip on me. God has indeed set me free in so many areas. He has broken many chains that bound my heart. I am now able to be more transparent than ever. I can openly share so many things I had kept hidden away in my heart. It is amazing what changes in us when we deal with deep areas of forgiveness. What a critical part of healing.
"The little girl of my heart needed to be free, free to be a real part of who I am as a woman and a lover of Christ."
Lana once said that people are sick in their souls because of unforgiveness and unspoken words. That was certainly true of me. Don’t we all have things we have never said to another human being? I think this is true in most of our lives. We take our secrets and grow up, leaving the child of our hearts behind. My healing journey took me to that little girl down deep inside of me. She held all of my pain. She needed for me to come back for her, and to embrace her with my love and acceptance. God was waiting for me to do just that. Then, He would have access to all she was meant to be. I never realized, as I do now, this little one held the wonder, childlike joy, and trust that is so natural to a healthy child. These qualities are so important in our relationship with the Lord. The little girl of my heart needed to be free, free to be a real part of who I am as a woman and a lover of Christ. I now see how much I have needed her. What a joy she has become to me! Yes, it is true. God can go back for the wounded little girl’s heart inside of us and only then will we realize that tiny feet can grow to dance again!
