Psalm 103:2-5 – “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagles’s.

It’s time to heal – Don’t you think? For me it is. From the sexual, mental and emotional abuse I received throughout my life. I keep going back to those things and focusing on the scars that they have left. Every time I do, it brings up anger, then depression, then bitterness. What we don’t realize is that when we fall into bitterness – IT WILL spread to others. I offer a different point of view on the focus of those scars:
I ask that you NEVER be ashamed, angry or bitter of the scars that life has left you with. KNOW THIS – A scar means the hurt IS OVER, FINISHED, DONE and the wound is CLOSED. You endured the pain and GOD has healed you. Why do we always want to focus on the pains of life – hold on to them like Linus does with his blanket; thinking that we can’t live without them because we are afraid of what might come next – A Bigger HURT? A more CHALLENGING TRIAL? Take a look at the memory verse for this weeks study on Healing and let it be time.
