Spiritual and Emotional Healing
Sin, abuse, neglect, rejection, betrayal all cause significant emotional and spiritual pain that hurt just as physical pain does. God, our Great Physician, can ultimately heal our broken hearts and bind our wounds, healing and making us whole. Spiritual and emotional healing is often a process with steps that we need to put action behind. Use these scriptures to guide your heart and mind toward full recovery.

Find The Truth, The Invitation (16)
At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes. Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight. All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him. Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
We often compare the ideology of the yoke in spiritual terms as a symbol of oppression but when looking from a vertical position, what used to be oppressing becomes a ray of light. His yoke is easy because when we are harnessed with a Savior, we discover that His burden is light. Our burden was left on the wooden cross with the cost of a sacrificial Lamb. Jesus went to Hell (Acts 2:27, Romans 10:6-7) and took the keys of Hell (1 Corinthians 15:54-57) and the sting of death (Revelation 1:18, Revelation 20:12-14). Jesus took our SIN price to become His burden because it is too heavy for us to bear. Must Jesus bear the cross alone, and all the world goes free, No there's a cross for everyone, and there's a cross for me! This verse of the hymn, Must Jesus Bear The Cross Alone? was written by the Englishman Thomas Shepherd (1665) based on Matthew 16:22. Shepherd's intention was to capture the theme of the burden of Jesus in song; can you relate to the burden of His cross?
Elohim Kedoshim, Holy God - Joshua 24:19; we thank You for being our Holy God, the one without fault. We praise You for revealing to us Your burden, the price of our SIN. We decree and declare the blessing (the indwelling of the Holy Spirit) upon those who seek to understand the burden of Christ, so that; those who accept the yoke of Christ will sing the praise of His cross. Now, for the Kingdom and Glory of God, we petition, with anointing, in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior, Amen.
