Healing the internal wounds

healing the inside wounds

Photo

I was reminded of a day I took a trip to a town called Alice. I travelled by bus from city of Durban which is ten hours trip to the destination.

A very restless young girl sat next to me. I kept wondering why she was that restless. She was quite a talkative type. At the first station she went outside and I saw her smoking cigarette and she came inside the bus quickly and took tablets. She repeated this routine at the following station, but I didn’t have courage to ask her what was going on.

They switched the air conditioner off in the bus, then I started picking up a funny smell which was getting stronger and stronger and I was getting really uncomfortable to an extent of covering my noses. This young girl then said to me, ‘ you must be wondering what is smelling’. ‘Of course yes’, I replied.

She pulled up her pants on one of her legs and showed me a wound behind, a size of a cup saucer. A deep wound! She then narrated the story of how she got deep vein thrombosis, having been in and out of hospitals for over two years the situation gets worse. She smokes to ease the pain and she lives on pain killers.

Wherever she is there is a stench. It is hard for her to be in public without making people uncomfortable. This happens with people with uhealed inner wounds. Hurt people hurt others. From my experience of abuse, the man who abused me had witnessed his mother being abused by his step father.

When we do not deal with issues we afford them an opportunity  to deal with us and make us bitter and miserable beings who make everyone around us miserable.

Do you know that person in your work place who causes trouble for everyone, when he or she shows up you know that peace will depart? That person has unhealed internal wounds.

I cannot over emphasize that nothing ever happens by chance in life. The pain you went through was meant to build you not break you. When your dad abused your mom and you saw the pain your mum experienced, why must you go and abuse your wife? This is because you never allow yourself to heal.

Healing comes from above, from the architect of our lives; the creator. For whatever happened to you was not meant for harm.

The first step to healing is admitting that you have a problem and you need help. Then you have to open up to someone and be able to pour out your heart. Buried secrets will destroy you.

Close the door and pray this prayer:

Father in heaven, I know that you LOVE me and you created me with good intentions and purpose. I come before you, and I ask you by your Holy Spirit to heal my inner wounds. I know that you are the only one who can make me whole. From today my life will never be the same again. Be the Lord of my body, soul and spirit. Take complete control of my emotions. I ask all this in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Amen

PAIN IS PART OF LIFE

Raising up a child as a single parent always leave you with suspense of what your child really thinks of the situation.

I always remind my daughter of fathers that are available but cannot even provide for their children purposely.

Life, just like a house has a unique plan. My life plan is different from yours. When one builds they choose whether they build by straws, stone, bricks etc. The material you use determines the value of the house.

The architectures draw the plans and inspect if you are building according to the plan. Whether your parents died on an accident or you have the wealthiest parents is still part of your life plan.

Pain is part of life and you can never avoid it. Many people end up on substance abuse/ drugs just to escape or ease pain. Whatever it is that is happening in your life today, it is part of your life journey and it is not there to kill you but tobprepare you for your destiny.

In the previous blog I made example of people who are successful business man but were selling sweets at school. Some people were a mockery and victims of bullies at school because of their bodies but today they are top models.

Some people look like their fathers and resort to change their sexuality because they want to ease the pain. Some people are even addicted to porn because they want to fill the void inside them.

Have you ever seen someone who drinks alcohol to drown their sorrows, but as soon as they are drunk they start crying and mourning about the same sorrows they were drinking to drown.

Escapism is not a solution. Face your pain because it is not there to kill you but it is a detour or a sharp curve leading you to your destiny. If you think you are too ugly, it is time you start using your ugliness to your benefit. The architect knows that even a broken brick is needed in the corner of a building. If you think you are useless or failure , think again.

Life is a precious gift from the creator and pain is the building block of life. Have you ever noticed that the language of an infant is crying. When they are hungry they cry and you attend to them. The first thing the baby does at birth is; cry.

It is time that you find the purpose of your rejection. There has sprung up a generation which can’t bear pain. If you scold them they go on drugs or commit suicide. Pain is part of life, pain has purpose and nothing ever happens by chance no matter how bad it is.

Do you remember that dumb student from your class who has PHD today? He took failure positively and learnt to work hard and never give up.

Some women hate their monthlys such that they use pills to stop it. Why would the creator allow women to go through such pain every month? Do you think it is a mistake? No!

LIFE: THE PERFECT GIFT

It has been long since I have written a blog. I engaged on a revamp project and there were a lot of obstacles. Irrespective of those obstacles, the good news is: my book is now available from my website. Please support me by purchasing the book. Go to ‘menu’ click on ‘sPhoto(11)lhop’, then ‘add to cart’and follow instructions.

Problems, obstacles, hindrances, pain, disappointment etc all sound negative but they are part of life. In fact they the building blocks of life.

Everyone has a story and each story is different and unique in it’s own way. It was never the aim of the creator that we go through pain, therefore He ensures to undertake for us.

In every challenge that we go through there is always a lesson to be learnt. One of famous Bishop TD Jakes’ teachings “Nothing just happens” unpacks secrets of life.

One of the greatest African entrepreneurs Strive Masiyiwa used to sell sweets at school, but today he is one of the greatest entrepreneurs.

When life seems harsh, you must know that it is shaping you for greater things. Some people grow up in tin houses only to turnout to be great builders and end up owning construction companies.

You might say, I grew up without my dad or I don’t know my parents, I went to bed hungry etc, but if you look closer in the situation there is a lesson life was teaching you.

When we grew up we were always a mockery in our area due to how my dad treated us; like boys. He never used to hire a painter. He would get us to paint the house. When we were moved into a new area, we were given land that hardly had any soil but rather more rocky. My dad made us get the soil and fill in the holes. A complete public spectacle! But the same land that everyone despised is now green and everyone asks for few acres. Now we have more than enough land in an area we were issued because it looked useless.

Life can be rough and unfair but you can turn it to gold and even platinum. I assure you of this; the purpose of every pain is purification ; just as gold goes through fire before becoming gold.

Now drugs, alcohol, bitterness, murmuring etc won’t help you. Close the door and ask your maker what to do with the situation. You will be surprised his much ideas you will come out with. He said He will pour His spirit upon all flesh. What looks like is there to kill you, is your ticket to success.

In conclusion; I want to tell you that I was very intelligent in school. I didn’t know what was to fail. The people that were not so good in class some of them are professors today because failure taught them to work hard and never give up. Me, on the other side, when I saw fail for the first time I thought of suicide.
