While working in outpatient dermatology surgery, sad to say, I came across many liars. Yes, liars. After their surgery procedure, and while I was bandaging the surgery area, I would go into my verbal explanation of exactly "how" to care for their wound while healing.
I would explain to them how to gently clean the area and how to apply polysporin over the sutures. When the day came to have their sutures removed, I would unwrap their bandage and low and behold, the truth was revealed.
Did you follow the steps explained on how to care for your wound? Yes. (lie)
Did you apply polysporin to the site? Yes. (lie)
There was no use in telling a lie. Right there before my eyes I could see a bloody crusted over wound. Sadly, now removing the crusted over sutures would hurt. The scabs would now need to be soaked, softened and removed before removing the sutures.
Imagine Jesus is standing beside you right at this moment. Look at His face. There are tears in His eyes and His hand is reaching out to you. Yes, He feels your hurt and the emotional and physical suffering you are going through. He waits for you to cast ALL your cares upon Him!
Casting all your care upon him; for He cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7
Understand that God loves you beyond what you can possibly imagine! When you come to understand and receive His love healing begins deep within. There is no need to continue to worry about the wound that was once there. All wounds are now turned over to Him and there is no further need to dwell on how badly you were hurt, wronged or treated.
