I love reading the latest “A Girl Like Me” post, where normal, everyday girls are vulnerable and openly share their journeys in life and how God sees them through every heart wrenching situation, and carries them through when they cant go on any more. This latest post “And Then The Fog Lifted”, especially struck a tender nerve in me as Heather shared on how God removed the cancer that was making her heart sick, and is taking her on a journey of healing form abuse. There are few people in this world who haven’t been affected by cancer in some way, in the physical sense I mean, both personally or a family member or friend who has suffered pain. I have experienced this disease in my families life more than once, in some cases there has been restoration and healing, others not. Those journeys were painful, but what about those who are dying spiritually and emotionally from the cancer of the heart, where no doctor can get to, only God can. Its that cancer that is far more devastating and it breaks my heart to think of those who are suffering with deep pain and cant find healing. They may not even know in the first place that they are sick. I want to send out a prayer for the broken hearted, the hurting and the sick, that they would find healing in the restoration Jesus died to bring…and those that don’t even know they have cancerous hearts, that they too would be transformed by the lifeblood of Christ.
I have always found the painting “Adele Bloch-Bauer l” by Gustav Klimt captivating, but I had never realised the intense history surrounding the painting. No wonder a film is being made on it. I will definitely be first in line at the cinemas for this one.
