Hidden scars keep us from seeing who we really are

As you move through your day how many people do you think you come across that have hidden scars?  Hidden from plain sight these scars go undetected year after year. Some scars go so deep that it can take a life time to become comfortable  with having them.

Scars on our soul are the hardest to heal and leave a mark that we can not see or cover with clothing or make-up. While we think we have put some injuries behind us. Our minds store them deep in our subconscious. These scars come open with out us really knowing when or why. How we deal with them is sometimes confusing to our mind. Our minds will find ways to heal the scars in eating disorders, drug, alcohol and even unsafe sexual behaviors.

I am one of the people you might meet or pass on the street or at work with these scars. Abuse come in many ways and as children we have no way of knowing what is or is not abusive behavior. I know when I was a child my world re-voled around my parents and those trusted to care for me when they were not around.

It only takes a few minutes to take away the spirit and innocence of a person that believes and trust in you leaving wounds so deep the mind can’t except what has happened. The soul is hurting so badly that it trains our minds to bury what it cannot except as the will of God.

Looking for ways to heal we  pick up on the things that numb our pain it may be food,alcohol,drugs or sex. Some of us will use all or one of these pain killers as they might have add to our abuse in some way. The only way to heal these scars is to face our memories and train our brain, by letting our subconscious free to understand as the abuse occurred we were powerless to stop it.  We are at no way responsible for we were not in control.

When we have these scars we live our lives not wanting others to see them. The fear of exposing them can take over who we are, how we act and who we spend our life with. The shame of what has happen change how we see ourselves and how we believes others see us. This is usually an ugly image and not who we are at all. The one who truly knows us is God He has put people in our path that can help us find the scars and heal them.

With God I can do all things I can heal and be the beautiful child He has created in his image.

Little children, you are of God and have defeated and overcome them, because He Who lives in you is greater than he who is in the world.                                                                                                                                    John  4:4

He who is greatest among you shall be your servant.                                                                       Matthew 23:11
