As we go through life, we literally live and learn. Challenges present themselves daily. It is how we function throughout life with those challenges in tow. Can we get past the tremendous scaring in the process. Life can be put in this short analogy. When you are learning to ride a two wheel bike with out the support of training wheels and or someone holding onto you, you do fall. Some falls can turnout to be nasty spills. Scrapes, bruising, broken bones may all occur. When the injury heals, you get back up on that bike, determined as ever to take on the challenge of mastering that two wheeler. Yes, you have scars but you continue on anyway. You tend to forget the scars are there unless you re injure them. In the spiritual world we heal our wounds and get back on the proverbial bicycle by forgiving ourselves and others. We see to it that God plays a significant part of that. We need him to help us get past those injuries.
Ephesians 4:32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
That he who blesseth himself in the earth shall bless himself in the God of truth; and he that sweareth in the earth shall swear by the God of truth; because the former troubles are forgotten, and because they are hid from mine eyes.
