Have you ever had your trust broken, a relationship break down, or a painful experience that left you feeling hurt and vulnerable? Have you ever experienced trauma such as divorce, abuse, illness, or death of a loved one? Have you ever been hurt so badly by someone that you let bitterness and resentment grow and fester? Or maybe your expectations have been let down and you’ve been confused, questioning and sad. Maybe something completely unexpected has happened to you and you are battling hopelessness and fear of the future.
All of these experiences and many more cause wounds in our souls. You may not even be aware of these wounds and how long you have carried them. They may be a source of hidden pain that you have left under the rug because they’re too difficult to deal with and you don’t even have a clue where to begin to address them. You may be afraid that opening the lid on these wounds will cause a tidal wave of uncontrollable symptoms.
The problem with numbing out is these wounds can become fragmented and infiltrate our thinking and belief system about ourselves and the world around us. If we are not willing to address the wounds in our souls they can actually change our perspective and cause us to view life through a jaded filter. We become numb and live in autopilot. Examples may look like this:
The good news is that we do not have to live with band-aids on our inner wounds for the rest of our lives. We do not have to make inner vows that will keep us stuck and limited to our painful experiences.
Here are steps you can take to find inner healing for your soul today:
The journey to inner healing is not going to happen overnight. A sure sign that you are ready for inner healing is if you are sick and tired of settling for a reality that is holding you back. If you recognize that you have been living life halfheartedly out of fear, then today is your day to find freedom. Don’t wait to live a life emotionally whole. It is possible. God is the creator of your soul and the one who can mend it back together. He does not require us to forgive and then move on with life wounded and broken. Forgiveness and inner healing are yours today if you will receive it.
