30 Days of Praise and Thanksgiving: Day 14

Day 14: Fills the Heart’s Void

I lost my daddy when I was 3 months old to a terrible car accident. It left a void in my heart and created abandonment issues that I would try to fill well into my adult life. Only God can fill that void and He is still repairing many of those issues within me today. Often what happens is we turn to outside resources to fill those voids in our heart. For some (like me) it was toxic relationships causing years of emotional damage from emotional and mental abuse. For others, it is drug or food addictions. Some go the opposite direction and anorexia/ bulimia or harm themselves such as cutting. That void needs to be filled and it’s often filled in an unhealthy way. The Lord is slowly unraveling years of damage caused by me trying to fill that void in emotionally abusive relationships. He said He is unraveling that damage done to my mind like a rope that was bound and twisted. As he frees my mind that rope is becoming smooth and beautiful. Along this new journey to free my mind, I’ve found that old void trying to reopen. Every time this happens it opens the path to more knots, more twist in that rope. The answer during those times is drawing closer to God. “For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.” ~ Psalm 107:9 There is no person, no drug, no food, that can fill it. I can’t help but smile. It’s taken me a long time to get that and God could not give me my Boaz until I had that. “O taste and see that the LORD [is] good: blessed [is] the man [that] trusteth in him.” ~ Psalm 34:8 Everything is in His timing. I have to be so buried in Him, so solid there that my Boaz must go through Him to get to my heart. I’m getting there Lord!!!! Heart check. Is there any void in your heart that leads way to addiction of any kind or any size? Now is a great time to give it to God and allow Him to take over that void. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

🧡 Thank You Father God for filling that void the heart often seeks after. 🧡
