Don’t Let the Callous Form

Send to Kindle

by Rebekah Beene

One day a couple weeks ago I started having a tiny pain in the ball of my foot.  I couldn’t see a thing.  Finally, I could take it no longer and I asked Danny to look and see if he could find a cut or something.  He was able to see from his vantage point what I couldn’t – a callous and within it was a tiny shard of glass.  I was so relieved! But I had to allow him to dig it out in order to find complete relief.  Even though I didn’t want to, I submitted to his careful hand.  Both the pain and the callous were gone before I knew it.

A couple of days ago I felt a pain like that again, in my heel. Sure enough upon Danny’s inspection was found another tiny shard of glass.  Since he’d already done such a good job of relieving me of it, I let him get quickly to work this time.  I wasn’t going to allow a callous to form again.

God will help us in our discomfort but we have to go to Him and allow Him to remove it His way and by His strength.
Oh beloved, God is always on your side. So you can trust Him with every painful memory and situation.  You weren’t meant to live with the pain.

You’re not destined to have a calloused life.   God hasn’t called you to live with it but to bring it all to Him.  He sees everything better than you can possibly see it.  He gets to the root problem of all the sources of your pain. You may want to ignore it and hope it goes away, but He wants you to have sweet relief.  One tiny little pain can give you such a problem. But relief comes when the Lord is allowed access to the hurt.  Some have said it’s hopeless there is no help for you.  But God isn’t afraid of anything.  Not even your worst nightmare.  He is here to relieve you of everything that is not of Him.  You see yourself as wounded but He sees you healed.  And Jesus went to the cross and grave so that you could walk completely whole and free.

God loves you and He’s for you.  That’s why you can trust Him.  He calls you as you really are – loved, cherished, treasured, healed, set free, delivered and set on High with Him.  Run to Him this morning and give Him your hurts and allow Him to do the work only He can do and live in the Light of His sweet, grace filled merciful relief!

Psalm 25:17 The troubles of my heart are enlarged; Bring me out of my distresses.

Jeremiah 30:17 ‘For I will restore you to health And I will heal you of your wounds,’ declares the LORD, ‘Because they have called you an outcast, saying: “It is Zion; no one cares for her.”‘

Jeremiah 17:14 Heal me, O LORD, and I will be healed; save me, and I will be saved, for You are my praise.

Psalm 44:26 Rise up! Come to our help, and deliver us for Your mercy’s sake and because of Your steadfast love!

Isaiah 33:2 LORD, be gracious to us; we long for you. Be our strength every morning, our salvation in time of distress.
