All women carry a wound deep in their hearts and souls. That wound is different for all of us. You know immediately what I’m talking about, don’t you? That certain subject or person that has hurt you so deeply – that even if you have made strides to forgive and move on – it’s like the embers are still inside of you burning a little bit.
Acknowledge that that wound exists in your life. Our wounds can have a hold on our life, you know. They can cripple us, if we let them. We can foster the hurt so much, that the wound changes who we are. We become a victim, never being able to overcome and rise above this particularly, painful point in our lives.
We need to realize that Satan sent these wounds to us on purpose. We did not suffer them by accident. Whatever your wound is – Satan sent it personally to YOU. He sent it to hinder you from being who you were meant to be. Are you going to let him?
We can submit our wounds to the Lord and allow Him to work in us through them. God can use our wounds as a ministry for him. Some days that thought may seem impossible – but we need to keep the faith. If God believes in us, who are we to give up on ourselves?
Don’t let Satan win. Don’t let him impact the course of your life. Don’t let him use your wound to make you feel ugly, unworthy, dirty, unwanted, hopeless, or small. Don’t let him force you to “settle” for less than the best you know you can give in your life.
