Giving the wounds away

Romel Your Tears
Your Tears

Have you ever been wounded by the words or actions of another?  Of course, you have.  It is a part of life.  There is an old adage that is heart-breakingly true:  “Hurt people hurt people.”  Those wounds we receive from others are passed on…sometimes with intention, often without our even noticing. It does not have to be.

Every sinful action has already been paid for…my actions and those done by others to me.  I do not need to bear the cost–nor do you!  Jesus was made sin for us…that we might be His righteousness.  It is the most unfair trade in eternity and our power source.  When we give the wounds we receive to Him, He transforms them.

The wounds that slice open our soul–even our spirit–became vessels of healing for others when we hand the wound to him and receive the payment he made.  In my deepest hurts, I have needed a visual reminder.  I may meditate upon the Cross of Christ–picturing myself under it as His blood covers me.  I may write out my pain and even burn the written words as a sacrifice of thanksgiving.  Jesus paid it all…don’t pay a debt that has been paid.

For a deeper look at this subject, I invite you to visit read Is here any hope for healing? 

There is a glory story in your hurt!  Can you see it?  Will you share it that Jesus will get the glory?
