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.

The Season of Healing (Time to Love and A Time to Hate)
To everything [there is] a season, A time for every purpose under heaven: A time to be born, And a time to die; A time to plant, And a time to pluck [what is] planted; A time to kill, And a time to heal; A time to break down, And a time to build up; A time to weep, And a time to laugh; A time to mourn, And a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, And a time to gather stones; A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing; A time to gain, And a time to lose; A time to keep, And a time to throw away; A time to tear, And a time to sew; A time to keep silence, And a time to speak; A time to love, And a time to hate; A time of war, And a time of peace.
There is an inference about the season of love, and it is an emotion superseded by Agape, God’s love. We see love; we are influenced by our human observations, what we experience as love pales compared to how God loves. The season of hate is simply no love; without God, there is no real love. The absence of God instantly drives us into a position of darkness. The darkness is the absence of God, and in this season without God is hate, institutionalized, unscheduled death of the spirit.
Elohim Chayim, The Living God - Joshua 3:10; we thank You for the earnest purpose of Your season. We praise You for the Agape, where we experience real love. We declare and decree the blessing (the indwelling of the Holy Spirit) upon those who see the need for real love in Christ Jesus, so that; we who have lived in hate can be redeemed. Now, for the Kingdom and Glory of God, we petition, with anointing, in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, Amen.
