EY Champions

Hope your New Year is starting to get into "top gear".

Some time ago, I was just chilling when my gaze was drawn to the scars on my left leg; it's the one that always seems to cop it. There was one from a barb wire fence, another from a chainsaw, & more from the surgeon's knife. As I looked at each scar, I could vividly recall each incident & the associated pain but, of course, I couldn't actually FEEL the pain in my conscious mind; they were just memories.

And so it is for all our physical wounds. Our amazing bodies heal at the sight of the wound by forming scar tissue, a tough and fibrous joining, so it won't open & bleed again, & the surrounding flesh stays soft & supple.

It started me thinking about the scars of the heart, our emotional wounds. It dawned on me that they are the complete opposite to our physical scars. They don't heal forming a scar never to open again, never to feel the pain vividly again. It only takes a "trigger event" for that scar to burst open & the pain to be as real as the "first cut".

So what DOES the body do to protect us. I believe it hardens the heart (the flesh) around the "scar" with bitterness, unforgiveness, anger, resentment, revenge & so on. They are our defences, but they aren't going to heal that "scar". Neither will any surgeon's knife. It's the Divine healer, Jesus Christ, that has the answer.

Ezekiel 36:26

I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.
So champions, how's your heart? Hard or soft? Are you open to receive the love & healing of Jesus Christ?
I pray you are for you are precious in His sight AND mine.
God bless & luv ya guts

AL, you are a mighty man and have once again delivered a mighty thought provoking blog. I hope many of the blokes that read this will consider their hearts and if they are made of stone they need to review their pasts and look to Jesus to give them a new soft heart. Thanks again AL we are always better after you have visited us. Darryl
