Driving down the road, I did not notice it at first but soon I began to feel the stares and see people mouthing the words, "Look at that? or Wow, What happened?" They were all staring at what was the aftermath of a car accident (or scar as I like to call it) on my truck. The damage is openly noticeable to the point where I began to count how many people took notice or even said something.
I bring up this situation because it reminded me of the internal scars that many of us carry but we allow these to fester on without healing or resolve. Psalm 147:3 KJV says God can "...healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds."
So why do we run from Him?
Why do we feel our burden is ours to bear alone?
Just like one day, my truck will be fixed with no appearance of the previous trauma, we must get to a point where we desire change internally as well. The Bible describes Jesus in Hebrews 4:15-16 in this manner, "For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.  Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need."
This verse is to remind us that our internal scars and wounds are nothing new to Jesus and through him, we are able to ask for help. If you are still dealing with some scars and wounds, my prayer today is for you to call out to Jesus for your healing so you no longer have to bear them alone.
