Living Room times - healing times

I'm healing. Feeling rather quiet and not carefree yet, but healing. This morning I talked to the person who I had hurt and his response to my apology was comforting. I knew he would forgive, yet I did need to talk to him personally and hear him say he would. I needed to hear we were okay.

Our Living Room meeting was such a blessing. God so very much there. The person giving the devotional spoke from his heart, asking the question, "What has your mood disorder taught you?" After a bit, I spoke from my heart, telling them all I had been through this week - how I couldn't live with what I had done. How badly I felt about what my bipolar depression had caused me to do. I opened my broken and contrite heart and poured everything out, comforted to know that there were compassionate souls there to listen.

And others spoke from the heart. We shared from the depths of our being. No fear of judgment. Full acceptance and love for each other. What a special meeting it was! And how the Holy Spirit worked in each of us, healing us!

Thank you, God, for Living Room.

Dear Marja,

Thank God that you are feeling better. Glad you managed to clarify with the person. I have found it useful too to seek clarification and forgiveness personally whenever necessary.

Thank God for blessing your time at Living Room. Glad that you can be of mutual support there. It is so important to be able to share honestly and openly, and find support and encouragement from compassionate people. Thank God for Living Room! You have been a great blessing to them and now God is using them to bless you too!

Take care.

Praying for you,
Nancie

Thank you, Nancie,

This is Monday. Living Room was on Friday. And today I'm again not feeling quite the way I should. Still feeling bruised, restless, eager to work, yet too often thwarted in my attempts. I'll blog about it later.

Love you, dear Nancie, Thank you for your prayers. I pray for you too.
