Greenhouse Term 2 Week 7 Notes – Wholeness – Healing of Residual Pain
Q. How do you know if a thought or memory is from the Lord or just your own thinking?
A. The key to silent prayer or what some call “contemplative prayer”, is to quiet your mind, which may be racing to different thoughts, and focus your attention on waiting upon the Lord, allow him to enjoy your presence and enjoy His presence.
In the communion or fellowship with the Lord, there’s a healing and strengthening, a restoration that happens.
And the Lord may sometimes bring to mind the events of the past – traumatic things, sources of residual pain which similar happenings can trigger intense emotion or pain – which He is healing.
Alternatively, he may heal your subconscious without you even thinking of the original event in your childhood or past.
