Neosporin and a Scooby Doo bandaid....| A Personal Story








I am going through something very difficult right now...which has nothing to do with my depression. Maybe some day I will be able to share it with you. But for now, I feel that God is revealing to me that part of my healing comes through writing. So, forgive me for the lack of picture posts of my amazing clients...
It's crazy how God can speak through the silliest things. Some may chalk it up to coincidence, others may say I read into things, but I say it's the Holy Spirit working in me. This morning I was making my bed (a rare phenomenon here at the Morehead residence!), and a long piece of thread was hanging off of the mattress. I started to pull it, thinking it would just break off, but you know how that story goes.....It just kept unravelling and unravelling and made me ticked off! Finally, I wrapped the string around my hand and pulled with all my might. "There! I got it!!" Indeed the string was broken and lying in my hand, but it wasn't until a few seconds that went by that I realized it didn't come without consequence. The string had cut my fingers....deep, I just didn't notice it right away... but then the pain came. I went downstairs and put some trusty neosporin on it and covered it with an all too cute Scooby Doo bandaid (the only kind a mother of three boys could ever find in her cupboard). Then it hit me like a ton of bricks...Sometimes in our lives, we try to fix a problem and it just seems to spiral out of control. The more we try and handle it on our own, the farther we get pulled off of the main path. And once we finally get the strength to take control (by giving our struggles to God!!), it doesn't come without pain. But, there is good news friends, after the pain, the healing can begin!! Scooby Doo bandaids can't take away all of our pain, but there is One who is the healer of all. Today I am putting my trust in the fact that I am a child of God and that no matter what comes my way, I have the toughest bandaid on in the world!!

  1. What a wonderful reminder for me this morning Nicole. I was once told, "Let go and let God", a hard task to do at times, but how rewarding!! 2 Corinthians 12:9 Christ said, "My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness."

  2. Thank you for the reminder that we can't do it on our own... One of my favorite verses in the world is..Philippians 4:13
    I can do all things through him who gives me strength. Hold tight to that verse, it always helps. Just remember God said, “Never will I leave you;never will I forsake you". Hebrew 13:5 <3
