From Hurt To Healing – ‘My Testimony’

As I struggle with some physical issues and with the hurt of watching some of my father’s side of the family lash out at us in pain, I asked the Lord to reveal something… Anything on how to deal with it. I asked God to remove the layers that I have to be missing. He did…

The Lord reminded me of an accident I was in as a teen. I had a really bad injury that required stitches in my forehead. My sisters witnessed the whole thing. It was painful. The doctors sent me home with instructions not to touch it. I had to be careful not to get an infection. I was wrapped like a mummy.

After the wrapping and stitches were removed I was left with a scar, so I covered my forehead with bangs for a year. Time ticked by and I healed from my injuries. From time to time I will get a weird sensation in that area and there’s still a bit of a scar. But the thing is, I went from raw pain to a whole and healed person.

God can do that. You can go from raw pain to healing. You just have to give that pain over to God and trust that He will do it. Cover and stay away from things that will infect your healing until you can remove the bindings and be free! Oh, and those weird sensations you get afterward… a reminder of how far you’ve come with God’s Love Grace, and Mercy.

Peace and Blessings! ~Randi

Hope for the Holidays

In this season of miracles, hope and joy, many still feel the heaviness of depression. Perhaps they are missing a loved one who has passed away. Maybe it’s a broken relationship. Possibly it’s a lack of funds to really deck the halls.

I have felt all of those emotions over the years and honestly, a bit this year for all those reasons above however…

And, Hope has not only been whispering to me, but flat out YELLING at me lately, so allow me to share my hope with you:

I have Hope that I will see my son trying to make positive changes

I am Hopeful when I’m able to negotiate a deal that will make my life easier

And thanks to a wonderful student who read one of my posts and disagreed with me, let me say that…

I am grateful for the Hope I give my students in eight short weeks that stays with them for life.

I thank you God for the gift of Hope!


Psalm 39:1 “And now, Lord, what do I wait for? My hope is in You.

May your holidays be filled with Hope, Joy and of course Love!
