HEALING IS GREATER

Have you considered the power of wounds?
Recently, I was reminded that places in our souls that are not yet healed can bring us to act in ways that are hurtful to ourselves and others.  They cause breaks in relationships and create distances that are hard to cross so that we can be close again.

Brennan Manning once said,
“In a futile attempt to erase our past, we deprive the community of our healing gift. If we conceal our wounds out of fear and shame, our inner darkness can neither be illuminated nor become a light for others.”

So then, if wounds have such great power, how much more does healing have?
I say, exponentially greater!
Light defeats darkness, just by showing up!

    • Only if they are people who are safe enough to do that with. Some people simply are not trustworthy enough – that’s where proper boundaries and a strong dose of wisdom come in. Hannah
