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 Tear and A Time to Sew)
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.
The word “tear” is rendered as “rend” in most theological references indicating a language change (which is another issue). Solomon indicates a tearing of clothes, which typifies deep-felt act of grief as in OT time and in the NT in Luke 5:36 a piece of cloth or worn garment. When something worn in the season has a tear or needs a patch, you need to match the incision with a matching piece. Nonstandard theologies reflect a tear in our Biblical fabric when there are misdirection implanted in our worship. Therefore, as Mark 2:21, points out, when you put in new material, patching up old things, you are about to mess. The issue becomes even more ambitious when considering matters of the cross. What season are you preparing for?
Eli Maelekhi, God My King - Psalm 68:24; we thank you for being our God, My King. We praise You for revelations of Kairos and the season of tear and repairing tears and holes in our fabric of life. We declare and decree the blessing (the indwelling of the Holy Spirit) upon those who see the tears, the holes in our fabric of Faith, so that; we who sew can repair that which is torn. Now, for the Kingdom and Glory of God, we petition, with anointing, in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior, Amen.
