This Healing in Him series is inspired by an (in)courage group I co-lead. Last Spring, one of the ladies talked about how her heart felt locked up tight, and it was only God who had the key to unlock it.
There was something really beautiful about that visual and I felt led to create an art journal page depicting what this idea looked like in my life.
Ten years ago I was in denial about my past. I was self-protective, guarded, locked up and closed off, not wanting to deal with the cause and effect of my abuse.
But God had other plans for me. It took time, but I found God to be completely trustworthy and His love is healing and redeeming my heart.
It's a big, brave step to let God into your mess. But He is the only one that can add light to that darkness.
