Can your wounded heart be mended?

How many times in your life have you been injured? I have many injuries some of them are: being thrown through a car windshield which gave me a long scar on my scalp; getting hit in the mouth because I walked behind a see-saw swing leaving a scar between my lower lip and chin; I had two glasses which I took out of the dish washer hot and they exploded in my hand nearly amputating my left thumb, I have a long scar from the top of my thumb down into my hand; I have multiple other burns and cuts and if every cut, scrape and burn I had ever gotten still showed, I would look like the Bride of Frankenstein, however, our bodies were made to heal.

When my son tore the ACL in his left knee, a donor ACL was placed in the torn muscle’s place and fastened to the bone with titanium screws and it is serving him well and it has become his own. When God created us from the dust of the earth, He blew His own breath into our nostrils giving us life and making us His own.

We were meant to subdue and to dominate the earth and all that was in it, in other words we sold ourselves short for the lust of the eye for the forbidden fruit. We were able to walk with God, to hear and see Him. God made us from the dust of the earth. When Satan deceived Eve, God told him he would crawl on his belly and eat the dust of the earth, dust of the earth, right… US!  Giving up our rights meant that we were now open to sickness, death and pain, but our bodies retained the ability to heal itself. I watched the flesh of my thumb grow together so seamlessly that you really have to look close to even see the scar.

Point, we were made to heal. Jesus healed the blind He made the lame man walk, cured the leper, cast out demons and raised the dead! 

John 14:12 “Believe me: I am in my Father and my Father is in me. If you can’t believe that, believe what you see—these works. The person who trusts me will not only do what I’m doing but even greater things, because I, on my way to the Father, am giving you the same work to do that I’ve been doing. You can count on it. From now on, whatever you request along the lines of who I am and what I am doing, I’ll do it. That’s how the Father will be seen for who he is in the Son. I mean it. Whatever you request in this way, I’ll do.”

I’ve seen many miracles of physical healing, but what is harder to see is the healing of the “heart”, yes, I have several scars there also!

Psalm 34:18 If your heart is broken, you’ll find God right there; if you’re kicked in the gut, he’ll help you catch your breath.

Psalm 147:3 He heals the heartbroken and bandages their wounds.

Proverbs 17:22 A merry heart does good, like medicine, But a broken spirit dries the bones.

Jesus showed emotion when He wept over Jerusalem and at the death of His friend, Lazarus, but, when you let sadness and problems define you, you have moved out of the Garden all over again.

2 Timothy 1:7 God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love and of a sound mind!

Take your wounded, broken heart, to God, He will mend it and you won’t be able to see where the scars were! 

Whether you are quarantined or life has gone back to nearly normal you can still have a very Merry Christmas!

  1. Yes, we all have scars but we are not defined by our scars alone. Scars can remind us to be thankful that we’ve healed or that we have moved on or or that we were once wounded but not destroyed. I posted a reflection of 2020 on my timeline and like you I posted because of God’s mercy and great love, Christmas can still be merry and bright.
