You could hear the sound of the alarm from blocks away. Lights from the Fire Trucks and the Police Cars could be seen in the distance. Neighbors were all standing along the sidewalks of their driveways, in attempt to get a glimpse of all the commotion.
Once we were closer to the house I felt my body going limp and numb, as if it was having an outer body experience. This feels like a very bad dream, a nightmare. I could hear me screaming in my head “WAKE UP, THIS IS NOT REAL.”
Many thoughts and images began to plague my mind. As the driver got closer to the house. The Yellow Caution tape and the Police Officers monitoring the perimeter of my home, which is now a Crime Scene is made made everything a reality, instead of a dream.
When my phone rung while having dinner at the restaurant it was Officer Shoer contacting in reference to the Break-In, Murder and Fire.
This was my first date night in over nine years. It very well may be my last. He probably sprinted out of the restaurant, looking over his shoulder.
This has to be a Dream, not one I wish was true.
Shocked, dropping the phone, this had to be the worst night ever or could I be Dreaming. It felt as though I was apart of a Movie Scene gone bad.
Officer Shoer was speaking but no words could I comprehend. I could visually see my home, my things had gone up in smoke from the fire. The Fireman were combing through the debris in hopes of finding an explanation.
Yelling, screaming and grabbing my head, “IS THIS A DREAM, someone wake me PLEASE!!!”
Perhaps it is REAL or just a Movie Scene??
Hurt can hurt…
Hurt can be painful…
Every hurt is not the same.
Some hurt is seen…
Some hurt is hidden, covered even silenced.
All hurt is not the same.
Some hurt numbs, desensitizes, deflects into pain, it’s not the same.
Cry Out, Be Healed…
Help is available when you need it.
Let the Lord comfort you and dry those tear-stained eyes.
Cast your cares upon Him. He cares for You.
Let go of the silence, you have a voice.
Be heard, tell someone…
Refuse to be silenced…
Acknowledge the hurt, release the pain.
Forgive quickly, it is a process.
You can do! Your more than a conqueror in Christ Jesus.
Release it, let it go, don’t allow it to grow any longer or take root.
Don’t harbor a grudge in your heart.
Release it, let it go,
Let God make You Anew
