“Turn thy sight unto thyself, that thou mayest find Me standing within thee, mighty, powerful and self-subsisting”.
I love this quote! For years following my abuse, I was so resistant to looking inside. I’d lived through it once when I was a child, and again in therapy. I knew there was a lot more stuff to clean out and I wanted no part of it. But where I wasn’t willing to “turn my sight unto myself” to find more memories, I could “turn my sight unto myself” to find God! That was a whole lot better than finding more abuse, with all its attendant negative emotions!
When I went there, it’s amazing what was released . . . all the neutral and positive memories! A flood of them! They came back all at once, and it helped me to see that as awful as my childhood was, there was something I could build on: my relationship with God. And I am grateful!
