For a wound to be healed, blood vessels in the broken area start to open up, bringing nutrients and oxygen to the wound. Surrounding skin is stretched to cover the cut, forming a scab.
When you allow the Holy Spirit to wash over you, and when God begins to heal you, He’ll take you back to your place of hurt.
He’ll start to breathe life into your cuts, shedding light on your dark areas, by pulling and tugging on them. It’s not to hurt you, but to stretch your skin to cover your wounds.
To completely be healed of something, you need to first acknowledge where the ache is. Healing can feel like you’re being pulled in many directions, but God is simply reviving you, and breathing life into your deepest of wounds.
When you’ve completed your healing process, your wound is gone, but the scar is still visible.
When God heals you of your emotional wounds, you will no longer be in bondage to your hurt, but the memory will remain.
Your scar is a reminder of God’s perfect strength in your weakness.
The scar lets people know that you’re a survivor, and conquerer of your circumstances.
Don’t be ashamed of your wounds, because even flowers have thorns.
