I’m thinking about beautiful feet. Not because my feet are beautiful. They’re not. The beautiful feet in my thoughts are the ones Isaiah talks about when he says,
“How beautiful upon the mountain are the feet of the one who announces peace.” (Isaiah 52:7)
I want that kind of feet – the ones that take me up on the mountain of the Lord – the feet that take me into the arena of peace – the feet that are the foundation upon which I stand while announcing what the Lord has done for me. Those are the feet I want.
What do you suppose that peace consists of, that I am to announce? I can imagine that Jesus has taken all of my past hurt into his hands and transfigured it. Not into ugly scars, but transfigured it into a strength I never had before. He has taken my wound into his wounded hands and wrapped both into his love and the love of His Father. Their love picks me up and ushers me into their joy, their hope, their peace. Even after Jesus puts me down, I still feel the transfiguring continuing to transfigure me.
And then, he sends me into the valley where others live with their hurt. I can feel my feet growing more and more beautiful, and I know something I didn’t know before. When I announce his peace even in the valley, my feet are glowingly beautiful...
That’s what healing from spiritual abuse looks like. Even though healing is a process that may be arduous and lengthy, are you ready to come along with me? I encourage you to take one step forward and then another, as you learn how to release your wound into his hands.
