Part 3 – Under the Blood

Last night I realized the past had to be under the blood of Christ; if I didn’t put it there, then no one else would. As I realized this, God destroyed the tree, and it was gone for good. All that was left was the river flowing past where the tree once stood. As I looked at the river, once again it turned to blood. Instead of crying out to the Lord for his river of healing waters to flow, I asked the Lord why every time I looked at it, it turned blood red.

He showed me the bottom of the river. In the bottom I could see wounds, my wounds which were not healing because the water was irritating them. It was then I realized this river was made up of my grief; grief was irritating the wounds of the past. I realized that my grief also needed to go under the blood of Christ. As I put my grief under the blood of Christ, I saw the river dry up. It was amazing as I saw wounded ground finally begin to heal.

As I focused once again on where the Lord had planted the new seed for the new tree, for the first time I could rejoice. I was excited about this new birth. I then looked back to see a meadow with tiny flowers among the grass where the dead tree and the river was. I could still see the outline of where the river had been, and even now there is a warning not to go over and disturb the ground, for it is still tender and healing. I look and marvel at the Lord’s love for me.

Please join me for the next installment of “In the Meadow” titled “River of the Lord’s Presence.”

Blessings & Great Joy!
