Many of you are hurting, emotionally dying and living in a world of misery because you haven’t cut to the core of your pain. You wear facades and masks… Use food, makeup, sex, drugs and the notorious smile as cover-ups for your pain. You’ve prayed, cried out for help, yet you’re getting nowhere… Could it be you’re afraid of dealing with the true issue? Fear of exposing the wound? Afraid of what you will find? Well until there’s a surgery of your soul, you’re never going to be heal.
So what’s the true cause of your pain? Is it molestation as a child? Drug abuse? Low self-esteem? Mental abuse? Generational curses? Rape? Neglect of a Father/Mother? Sex and porn addiction? Domestic violence? Sadly to say, you’ve masked your problems with toxic behaviors and kept up the facades for so long, you’re now unaware of what’s really causing you so much grief… You live in a private world of shame and your box of secrets is filled with dark memories you want to forget.
Haunted by your past, you’re now bedridden infected with sores going deep into your soul. Don’t you think it’s time you use the scalpel to cut through the lies, facades and mask you wear? Get to the cancer killing you? You’re dying internally and everything you touch is infected by the issues you’re hiding within. Your family is suffering, relationship is suffering, work is suffering and most importantly YOU’RE SUFFERING… People fear surgery because of what will be found, but the only way to be healed is to go beyond the surface and cut out whatever is causing the problem.
What I know for sure is… Cutting off the facades and having a surgery (facing) of the soul brings healing. Facing it head on and not worrying about what others will think or how they will perceive you is a start to healing your soul. Many people put value on what others think so they cover up their true problems to avoid feelings of shame, but people are going to think what they want regardless to what you wear, how you look or what you say… People are fickle and they change with the wind, so it doesn’t matter what they think, only what you think. We all have issues and things we’re afraid for others to find out, but just like the man at the pool, Jesus is asking “Do you want to be healed?” and if so, “How bad do you want it?”
Will the process be easy? Nope…. Is it going to hurt? Yep… You’re going to face things and feelings you didn’t know were there. You’re going to cry, want to give up and go back to your old ways of living, but until you expose the wounds, you won’t know what’s needed to be healed. You’re going to have to forgive people for the things they’ve done. Forgive parents for words they’ve spoken. Forgive yourself for things you’ve allowed. Surgery (facing) of the soul is not a painless process and the recovery may be longer than you want, but you have to go through it in order to be healed. Cut off the things holding you back, they’re only keeping you from the future you’re destined for… Have a surgery of the soul…
