This week has been an interesting week. You know when you're going through something and you just can't seem to understand why all these things are happening to you? Well that's what it has been like for me. But then God revealed everything to me. My pastor has been preaching a revival and the message spoke about my situation. The reason why I was going through so much is because I was wounding myself, self inflicting wounds.
Earlier this week, I felt myself about to give up and give in to sin. I felt that I wasn't strong enough to keep from that sin. I talked with a friend who was reminding me of who God is and that He resides in me. But I wouldn't listen. Then I messed around and went to church. My pastor began talking about the wounded spirit/soul. Then it hit me, that is where I am. I cried throughout the whole sermon (those who really know me, know that it doesn't take much to make me cry). I just began to pray to God and pleaded for Him to deliver me from that sin. Lord, please don't allow me to fall back, take it away. As I cried out to the Lord, I received a text message from a friend about their wounds and we began to cry out to God together. By the end of the night, I was at peace. But it didn't stop there. The next day, the wounds were still there. I was reminded that some wounds don't heal overnight, it may take a couple of days. Well, God spoke to me again through the sermon by my pastor. Again, I cried because I knew what I had to do. It's time to stop self inflicting myself with wounds (sin). I need to surround myself with some Jeremiahs and when I see others self inflicting themselves I need to be Jeremiah in their lives. What is a Jeremiah? The prophet Jeremiah interceded by praying for the people of Judah (Jeremiah 8th chapter).
I know that I need healing, spiritually and emotionally. I have and will continue to reach out to God. You don't have to be a wounded soul. Cry out to the Lord. Reach out to Jesus and allow Him to heal your wounds. Pray with and for others for their healing.
