I fell at work several weeks ago, an accident. Wounded, I waited to see if it would heal, but after a week, it didn’t, so I went to the doctor. Sprained elbow/Tendinitis of the elbow is the diagnosis. No lifting with that arm over five pounds.
What about the wounds that you can not see or feel physically?
Wounds of the Heart? Wounds so deep that they are buried from your past. How do those heal?
The saying “Time heals all wounds” just isn’t true sometimes. I found that wounds from my past hurt more as time went on. They were hidden deep inside. I started having flashbacks. I was paralyzed with fear at times. I have felt like I am in a dark pit of pain and hurt inside my heart. Everything I do is harder right now, including my writing.
Jesus knew pain. He suffered. He was wounded.
He was betrayed by those close to HIM. People mocked HIM. Others turned their backs on HIM.
Yet Jesus still chose to have these things happen to him.
HE KNOWS PAIN.
HE KNOWS SUFFERING.
He chose it out of LOVE for you and me.
Remembering God’s love for me keeps me going in the times that are tough.
