I was a master at hiding my feelings. Very few knew of my inner troubles and inner pain. I will be forever grateful for the prayers of God’s people that helped me learn to be honest with myself and with others. I learned with God’s help how to forgive. I am healed so now I am able to pray and reach out to help another.
Helping Hurting People
When a tender spot is touched in protest you draw back;
There is no doubt to others it hurts in fact,
They can easily see it registered by your expression.
They hardly need your words confessions,
But, some of the worst pains affecting lives,
Are buried deep down inside.
You may smile, pretending nothing hurts at all,
When wounded refusing to allow your face to fall.
You will struggle onward, the world as a whole unaware,
For very few people take time or are capable to really care.
Many are also wounded and also pretend,
That everything is just fine with them.
If everyone consider another’s hurt and needs
They would cause less pain indeed.
It is God’s plan for His children to help one another.
It is His plan to reach through you to your brother.
It is His plan for you to love your neighbor and also your enemy.
It is His plan for you to forgive those that have a sore spot touched,
Because He died so all could be healed set free to administer His love.
Remember this word given to thee.
Many about you are hurting; by prayer set them free.
1 Corinthians 1:3-4
Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
