It’s been a tough week. I have a wound under my baby toe that’s not healing. I took it to the doctor because I was totally lost not knowing what to do. My doctor knew what needed to be done. She said I should have come sooner. I tried to fix it myself but I couldn’t. In order for this wound to heal some layers of skin needed to be burned away so new healing could begin.
Wounding a wound, breaking it open, so it can heal.... it doesn’t sound nice and totally freaked me out, but it was what was needed for this one to progress and not stay a wound that could rip apart at the slightest of bumps because the skin wasn’t healing properly.
We all have wounds. Some are physical ones that we can plainly see but others aren’t necessarily so visible to the eye. They can be rawer, deeper and scarier. It can be easier to pretend that it’s getting better or hide it away trying to ignore that it’s there.
But who wants to live with a wound? Not me. •
There is someone you can bring ANY hurt or wound to, no matter how big or deep. His name is Jesus. It maybe painful but by being brave and letting God in, he can heal that wound from the inside out. For nothing is too broken for him to fix if you invite him in. •
So I don’t know why I got this sore under my toe. It hurts, it’s inconvenient and I just want it to be gone. Despite all this, I am still thankful. I’m thankful that God uses things in our lives to draw us nearer to him, to lean on him and have faith, building our character. So I will rejoice and praise him, lean on him, pray to him about any and every worry and give thanks to him for all he has done.
“Rejoice always and delight in your faith; be unceasing and persistent in prayer; in every situation [no matter what the circumstances] be thankful and continually give thanks to God; for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.”
