These words are my raw unedited thoughts, jotted down on my phone. I hope you are encouraged.
The healing process
Many people negate the healing process of the heart. We move on quicker than the word NEXT, never to allow true healing to take place.
Go outside fall and skin your knee. Think about the healing process.
1. Wipe the scrape
2. Apply an antiseptic
3. Put on a bandaid
4. Next day take the band aid off
5. Apply more antiseptic
6. Let the scab develop
7. In a week the scab falls off
8. Once the scab falls off apply some cocoa butter or scar cream to minimize the scar apply as needed
After sometime the scrape is completely healed. You’ve taken care of the wound, minimized the after effects and scaring. Complete healing has taken place.
Why should the healing of the heart be any different? Why should we pay more attention to a scraped knee with multiple steps of healing and ignore the years of damage done to the heart due to physical abuse, heartbreak, death, infidelity, and stress.
What steps do you need to take for your heart to heal? You know if you leave the bandaid on too long, the sore gets infected, it never heals. Take the bandage off of your heart, apply the necessary medicine, let it get some air, and let healing begin.
