Daily Devotional – 1/11/19 “I need closure!”

A lot of times we use the phrase “I need closure,” before we can move on but did you know that some wounds are left open in order to heal? Yea, I thought I’d let you know that sometimes beloved, closure, although it’s what you seek; it may not be what you get. You keep chasing folk trying to get “closure” and instead all you get is chaos, confusion and crying. You remain stagnant because of the need for closure yet those you’re waiting on have moved on. Look, when a wound is infected doctors will sometimes leave it open, in order for it to heal. You know why?

1. Because closing an infected wound makes the infection worse.
2. There isn’t enough “tissue” to close the wound and you run the risk of it reopening.
3. The person, who needs the closure, isn’t healthy enough to withstand the closing.

Closure is sometimes needed, don’t get me wrong, but trying to get healing from the person who left you wounded, don’t always end well because they might not know how to give you what you need. Forgive them, even if you only speak it to the wind and make right the offense you caused. Close the door yourself, you don’t have to wait on anybody else; they might not show up. Close that chapter of your life, you don’t need anyone’s permission; they may never give it. That apology, it may never come and if it doesn’t, don’t allow that to be the reason you don’t live. Stop chasing folk, stop stalking their social media pages, stop looking through old pictures and texts but more importantly; STOP WAITING FOR SOMETHING THAT MAY NEVER COME! You don’t have to have closure to live, laugh, love and be happy, profitable and in your purpose. All you need is God, faith, strength and the determination to get up every morning knowing you are God’s and everything He creates is great!
