HEALER, HEAL THYSELF.
We are absent in and from our own lives. We are healing the world but we are wounded, broken and unhealing. It looks like we are even more unhealed than the possibility of getting healed.
Femi Jacobs once said ‘God has a way of testing your calling. Because while you are down, He sends you people you MUST help’
Leke Alder once said ‘it is the place of your calling that you’d get the most of your test.’ Chai!!!
But you know how it goes around here. It is anathema to be vulnerable and human. The healer has no iota of problems or semblance of crisis. The healer must be put together and should not be seen to be in need of ICU.
Very long ago, a chap was born into this world with the following labels:
– Poverty stricken
– Son of a prostitute who pretended to be a pious woman all the while, etc.
When he was about a year old, he came a THREAT TO GOVERNMENT to the extent he was doomed to be assassinated. Because of him, his family became SOCIETAL OUTCAST and the MEMORIAL OF PAIN.
When he clocked 33 years, he had become a big brand. He was reckoned to be the face and voice of ANYTHING HEALING. He just had a way with words and actions. He was a supreme human, so to speak. Literally everyone saw him as both to be loved and to be hated. You know how it feels when your contemporaries in industry envy your results and wish you could disappear from ‘earth’ just to ‘give them space’. He was the go-to guy for men, women, children, learned, uneducated. Everyone had something to tap from him. Then one day, society felt they had had enough of his vituperations.
Life can be a bitch!!!
All the peeps he helped did not spare him a moment of analytical conclusion. One paradigm was rife: if you claim to know the answers, let us see it work for you.
Dear ‘helper of people’, perhaps the dark tunnel you are going through is preparatory to the completion of your work. Perhaps!
The chap was humiliated, cursed, beaten and killed… then he was IMMORTALIZED.
His trajectory was not what many understood. But he focused on the INTENTION & GOAL.
Where are you bleeding?
What are you concealing to your detriment?
Are you dying slowly?
Do you want to die slowly?
What needs to happen differently?
What are you waiting for?
Perhaps ‘healing thyself’ means ‘do the unthinkable’ to get healed. Until you truly heal, you cannot complete your work of healing others.
SEEK TO HEAL BEFORE YOU SEEK TO HEAL. (Do you understand this?)
May the Spirit of God help you get this message and make you bold to pursue it.
