Dealing With Love’s Wounds and Hurts

It is understandable when enemies wound you. It is somehow discernible when you have wounds and bandages arising from a battlefront with an opposing side!

But the most significant wounds in our hearts are incidentally sustained by friends and lovers.

We have ex-friends, ex-besties, ex-lovers and sometimes ex-spouses. Sometimes the resulting effect is single motherhood, but how come we don’t hear of single fathers?

This leaves the women folk hurt most of the time because they deal more with hurts, bitterness, and agony of heart arising from disappointments in their quest for love.

Some married couples are not exempt from hurts and bitterness, because marriage can become that place where you are constantly hurt, especially when you want your spouse in a certain way and yet you are not achieving that.

Dealing With Love’s Wounds and Hurts

Zechariah 13:6 (KJV) And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.

Wounds can be sustained by friends, lovers, and spouses.

That is the reality! 

However, you cannot stay hurt and wounded all your life! You have to learn to forgive and let go! 

Do you realize that it is easier for the offender to let go? Of course, God’s justice system will deal with such a person. However, the offended find it challenging to move on as they struggle in the mud and mire of bitterness! 

This is why it often looks like you are hurt and yet things have really gone slow and complicated. It’s because of bitterness of heart! 

Dealing With Love’s Wounds and Hurts

Proverbs 14:30 (AMPC+) A calm and undisturbed mind and heart are the life and health of the body, but envy, jealousy, and wrath are like rottenness of the bones.

Envy, jealousy, and wrath are the cousins of bitterness. The scriptures say they can cause rottenness in the bones.

It can literally cause sicknesses and diseases!

You don’t want to stay on that page!

The good news is that God heals! 

Psalms 147:3 (KJV) He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.

That is soothing! He will not only heal your broken heart, He will bind up your wounds!

Why don’t you go to Him this morning? He is waiting to hear and attend to you!

Psalms 147:3 (MSG) He heals the heartbroken and bandages their wounds.
