The clouds bellowed through the skies much like the PMDD was screaming within my body. If you’ve followed my Facebook blog you know this8s something that can be severe. Today I was doubled over in pain, the irony didn’t escape it. A surgery took my uterus, but left my ovaries- the source of the pain. I know there are many health reasons for leaving them, but I as it felt like my ovary was twisting and being squeezed like washcloth I couldn’t help but think my Dr. missed the mark. She took away the “bigger” problem and left the root of the condition there.
The Lord spoke to me through that pain and said isn’t that what people do in life? I started reflecting on my own life. For years I stayed in an emotionally unstable and abusive relationship. More times than I can even count, I treated the symptoms of the problem, yet stayed in it. It wasn’t fixable my way, yet I tried for 6 years. I was more stubborn than the children of Israel! God couldn’t start the healing process until the root was cut out. That meant dealing with some major emotional baggage and a heart that wasn’t just broken, but shattered. But God. Once the root was dug up and thrown out, my Father went to work. I just realized that root had little tiny roots dug into me and latched in. He has started pruning me and cutting away those harmful roots that were invading the very areas He needed to make changes in me.
I’m still a work in progress, I have so far left to go. Poppa is working in me and teaching me to address things at the root in so many areas of my life. That’s where my healing takes place, that’s where my growth occurs. As those negative roots are uncovered and dug out, the roots God is planting in me can grow. If they are left, they risk choking out the roots God is planting. What kind of roots are buried within you? Are treating the problems with quick fixes and trying to fertilize grounds that need rooted up? Don’t be discouraged by them, ask God to help you dig them out. With God ALL things are possible and He would love to help you weed out your life so that His roots can flourish! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
