When we take about wounds, I personally tend to think of soldiers and their battle scars. However soldiers are far from being the only people who have “battle-scars” – Yes, it’s true the majority of us have never fought in a war or conflict, however I’m sure we’ve all had our fair share of battle-scars, maybe just a few of us with physical scars, but I’m sure we’ve all got loads of emotional scars.
Think about some of your own scars, I’m sure regardless of whether you are thinking about a physical or an emotional scar, they were very painful at the time you received them…and I’m sure some of them are still very raw and painful even now.
Imagine you had never received any of those scars, would your life still be the same today?
I’m sure that if I hadn’t experienced the physical and emotional scars I carry today, my life would be very different – I think if your honest, you’d agree with me on this one.
Every experience we go through, physical and emotional, makes us the person we are today. Every experience we go through builds or breaks our faith in God. I pray that your life experiences have brought you closer to God. If they haven’t, give God another chance, as He can make your every experience a God-filled one.
