“I am the LORD, who heals you” Exodus 15:26.
In the movie, The Greatest Showman, there is a scene where Jenny Lint, the Swedish opera singer, has just made her America debut and was visiting with P.T. Barnum after her performance. Jenny was explaining that she was born out of wedlock which brought shame upon her family. Then she shared that no matter how many standing ovations she receives it never fills the void of her emptiness.
Out of everything presented in this movie, this scene was most profound to me. You see, Ms. Lint had everything – fame, beauty and wealth but no matter what she was given on the outside was ever going to fill or give her complete healing on the inside. She never felt like she “measured up” to her position.
The bible gives us a great example through Moses. He was born a Hebrew but raised as the son of Pharaoh’s daughter. Moses never felt like he belonged. He felt inadequate, doubted himself and feared failure. To the point when God told him he was God’s chosen to lead the Israelites out of Egypt, he was begging for God to send someone else in his place (Exodus 2-4).
At His Truth Transforms International we deal with people on a daily basis that never feel like they’ve measured up. We are able to share, through our counseling, teaching, training and many published books how God can transform them to lead a life of being adequate not based on circumstance but on God’s love and truths. This is where you come in – because of your financial giving which allows us to minister to each person God brings to our ministry. We are able to guide them to have a personal intimate relationship with God who transforms people just like He did for Moses who became the strong leader for the Israelites.
So, thank you for coming alongside us with your prayers and financial giving which allows each of us to minister to hurting individuals. And please, continue praying for us, as well as our counselees. God’s love covers a multitude of pain and we are blessed to be a part of explaining how Jesus is their balm of Gilead!
In His grip!
