The unseen bleeding

A strange thing happened to me when I was opening a plastic bottle of water; I cut my finger.

It was a shock to me; I have done this so many times, but this one time the bottle seemed to have hit something and left a chip on the side, so when I applied force to open it, it scraped my skin off.

It was very painful, but blood didn’t come out immediately and when it did, it was just a tiny bit. My sister was nearby and she looked at me in amazement and said ‘You don’t have blood?’

I laughed and told her that I did but though the cut was painful it was not deep enough to produce blood.

Bleeding is an evidence of injury but some bleeding can’t be seen as it happens inward. A good example would be physical abuse and emotional abuse.

Some people may not be bleeding outwardly but life has happened and they are going through pain all the same.

The good news is God heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.

Your time to sing a new song is here.

  1. Hi Mercy, you’ve written a very powerful message. I’ve heard it referred to as “the walking wounded”-those who continue on despite those wounds they have hidden deeply inside themselves. Nobody can see those wounds are even imagine the depths. That’s the reason I believe it is so important to show compassion to everyone because we never know what someone is hiding in their heart. God is always faithful and He alone can heal us. In my blog last evening, I wrote a poem “Rescued.” It is about my faith that God rescued me even when I didn’t think anyone or anything else could or would. Please let me know what you think. Blessings to you and your family.
