But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. Is. 53:5 NIV
Walking Wounded is for those of us who have been or who are still being wounded physically, emotionally, mentally, and/or spiritually by the sinful actions of other people, and/or by our own sinful actions.
Although we have been or presently are being wounded, we are not defeated. We are WALKING by faith, by the grace of God, and in his power and strength within us. We are learning, growing, and crying out to God in our pain, and releasing it all to our heavenly Father. And, by Jesus’ stripes, which he took for us in his death on a cross, we are being healed. Amen!
This blog will mainly focus on the subjects of abuse, addiction, damaged emotions, rejection, persecution, trials, tribulations, misunderstandings and false accusations which may injure us. And, this includes the subject of church abuse, too.
And, it will focus, too, on God’s healing power and his love and grace to us in delivering us from addiction, and from the emotional pain associated with being abused, rejected and misunderstood and/or falsely accused. This blog is for the hurting who need God’s healing mercies in their lives. Here, you will not only read about these types of situations we encounter, but of how God will heal us and give us hope.
Also, we realize that Satan has no power over us, and that he can do nothing to us but what God allows it, and he allows it for a purpose. We choose to trust in God’s absolute sovereignty over every aspect of our lives.
And, God, who loves us, and who cares deeply for us, will carry us through every one of these trials which come our way to test our faith. So, by his grace, we will come through these difficulties praising God, peaceful in Christ, strong in the Lord, determined to keep going, dedicated to our Lord and his service, and compassionate for all others who are hurting and who need Jesus.
Also included on this blog is a book the Lord Jesus gave me to write a year ago about my own life’s experiences in the areas of addiction, abuse, persecution, and rejection, sharing what the Lord taught me through it all, and sharing how he healed my wounded heart and gave me hope for my future. The book is called, “I Married My Dad.”
