It could be argued that I would have remembered it more, since my surgical mishap...trying to learn to use gentler words for that :) But, the reality is my husband made me forget that I was ever dead. Surprising isn't it?! If you've ever read Corrie Ten Boom's books, you will see that love makes even a holocaust seem as something you are passing through. In the book, The Hiding Place, Corrie asks, "Do you know what hurts so very much? It's love. Love is the strongest force in the world, and when it is blocked that means pain. There are two things we can do when this happens. We can kill that love so that it stops hurting. But, then of course part of us dies, too. Or we can ask God to open up another route for that love to travel."
Another route for the love to travel, is very aptly put, don't you think? If you feel dead inside, open your heart to revival. God will open a path for life inside you. You don't have to wait for a rainy day, or a holiday to rejoice in life. There is no need to feel broken or fragmented. You are one with Christ. The Bible says,
Ephesians 4:4-10 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as you are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. Therefore he says, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)
You see, we must descend to ascend. We all want to climb higher in Christ, but like Christ, sometimes it is necessary to descend into the depths to reach the heights that He has for us. Rest in what He has for you. And, that will be all you ever wanted.
