Scratches turn to wounds

The sky is bright blue the breeze crisp as I walk through the woods not aware of the tiny dangers.  As I went deeper into the woods chasing the dog and laughing having fun I got a few scratches.  After a few hours those long red scratches on my arms started to hurt, as I went to investigate in the bathroom I discovered tiny thorns in my skin. Wow, Shouldn’t I have felt them earlier? Shouldn’t I have seen the thorns before now?  

Life like the woods are full of unforeseen daily dangers like thorns. I like many of you run through life at full speed unaware of the small pricks in my soul happening before I know it.  What is a prick to the soul? When we allow a hurt or pain like an unkind word, or a husband leaves his socks on the floor and you decide to let it prick your soul or your wife does not offer kind words today and it pricks your soul.  It happens. We dwell on the small hurts.

The pricks or tiny thorns left in our soul or on our arms get infected and cause us so much pain.  Once we are in pain then must go to the doctor to get medicine to heal us.   As soon as we feel that our soul or life has a scratch that is when we need to stop and investigate what has pricked us and ask God for healing.  Psalm 147:3 “HE heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” How wonderful it is that we have a God to go to in time of any distress and HE heals!  Let’s heal those scratches in our lives daily.


Wishing you a day full of NO scratches.
