A wound where there are no tears is a wound that refuses to be healed.
A splinter under the skin, if left alone and ignored will eventually fester to a point of infection. Your body is rejecting the foreign object no matter how small it is, the pain calls out for your attention. If you ignore it too long, you could end up in the emergency room.
How about your heart?
Why ignore the pain?
Your heart is more precious than a finger; you can live without a finger, but you cannot live without your heart.
Sometimes we’re strong in the wrong things and at the wrong times, but to be weak in the right things brings true strength.
If you are hurting, in pain and are crushed in spirit, heart and soul, you may be at the greatest turning point of your life. You may actually be dwelling with God in a high and protected place, but you must share your tears with God, or you’ll be swallowed up in bitterness and left alone on earth.
Isaiah 57:15 (TLB)
“The high and lofty One who inhabits eternity, the Holy One, says this: I live in that high and holy place where those with contrite, humble spirits dwell; and I refresh the humble and give new courage to those with repentant hearts.”
Psalm 51:17 (HCSB)
“The sacrifice pleasing to God is a broken spirit. God, You will not despise a broken and humbled heart.”
Let God encounter your tears, after all, he is the Everlasting Father. Share it with him as your sacrifice. Come to him crushed, broken, betrayed, rejected and despised. He’s well acquainted with all of this and more. He allows it to touch your life, not to destroy you, but to draw you closer to himself.
God wants to father you…
Simply trust and turn to God and surrender your rights to be offended; your anger for being abused; your self hatred for being molested, raped and violated. God specializes with hurting and wounded people, and he’d rather be with you than with Kings and Queens.
The moment you offer up to God your tears and pain, you are with him in spirit and in truth.
Isaiah 42:3 (TLB)
“He will not break the bruised reed, nor quench the dimly burning flame. He will encourage the fainthearted, those tempted to despair. He will see full justice given to all who have been wronged.”
God won’t exploit your bruises. He’ll not snuff out your heart, even if its barely lit and barely alive.
God desires to be your daddy…
Give it all over to God. If you do, he’ll see to it that justice is served, and you can give your revenge a proper burial.
Then, you’ll knock down your walls of despair and make them into a dance floor and you’ll dance with your Abba, just as He’s always wanted too.
Don’t live with the pain. Time is not the Healer of all wounds, that’s lie.
God is the Healer of all wounds, and he’s waiting to hear your cries directed towards him, so that He may act.
“O my people in Jerusalem, you shall weep no more, for he will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry. He will answer you.” Isaiah 30:19
Give it up to God. Let it out and drink in God’s presence and love, and so be healed and restored.
Become healed in the name of Jesus! He came to seek out the lost and broken, and there is no one he cannot save or heal.
This may be one of your greatest days and greatest turning points.
Your heart and soul is God’s specialty!
