Big And Small Wounds

"Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering,
yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. 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."
- Isaiah 53:4,5 (NIV)

Time seemed slow as I took a few steps discovering each room in my house. Different sizes…Some were huge spaces. Others were cramped up. But all of their sights brought me worries. Pain. Suppressed memories that came back to life again. A minor thud somewhere outside woke me up as I still lingered that vision. The house was my heart. The rooms were the many scars brought upon by events. By people. Some hurt a little. Others hurt a lot. I found myself praying as my eyes opened to the darkness of the night. My scars and some fresh wounds in my heart were being met by the scars He endured on the cross. His scars reminding me of His mercy, love and grace.

Father, I lift up all of Your children to never lose hope and be able to overcome life’s sorrows and burdens that wound their hearts and some already living with painful scars. Lord, I pray for Your healing and help Your children always remember that what scarred Your hands and feet became the wounds of victory! Thank You Lord for Your unconditional love, mercy and grace. All the glory belong to You. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.


  1. Thank you precious sister. It has become a time of worship unto the Lord for me. Tears spilling down my face...Thank you dear sister. You are so precious to my spirit. ((hugs))

  3. Dear Rosel
    It is his mercy and love that will heal the wounds of our hearts. I wrote this comment first, then I will click on the video.

    May every blessing God intended for you never be stolen by the enemy.

    Much love

  4. Gods Mercy is beyond our comprehension...he is our healer in all things...he lifts us up when we are down. He never leaves us. My heart is grateful♥

  5. Heal the wound but leave the scar just reminds us where we would be without Him.

  6. Rosel, thank you for sharing. Blessings.

  7. Thanks so much for sharing this my friend.

  8. Big Wounds!
    Worked for a landscaper (not a believer) last year. Put a tree through my hand. Went to my doc.
    He stopped the bleeding, gauzed me, and sent me to the hospital.
    Specialist 1 and 2 took pictures to see extent of damage.
    One of them decided my thumb and index were so deadly purple, they must be amputated.
    In pain, I screamed NO. Not because of losing the parts.
    "I am deaf! I just learned how to communicate with fingers. I can't talk on my left hand!"
    A nerve surgeon, first woman of the 4 folks so far, said she believed, even with some nerve damage,
    she could save the finger, thumb, and hand.
    I chose her!
    She did as promised, sent me home to clean it in proper steps for a while.

    "Why didn't you come back?", she asked.
    "I didn't know I was supposed to"
    "We told you after the final operation to come back for 8 weeks"
    "I'm deaf; I did not hear that at all. What will you do?"

    "The others want to operate again (had 4 surgeries already).
    I think I can fix the scar they want to fix with surgery, and do it without surgery"
    [Man I love medical women!]
    Instead of reopening your hand to remove scar tissue with an operation, I can massage therapy for the same results, but more time is needed"
    She did. I speak with five digits anew.

    The landscaper's beloved dog died 3/7/2012. He was distraught.
    He sent me a text message with a picture of his dog, in a red convertible, in better days. "RIP 3/7/2012"
    I replied that when the dog was near, he (the landscaper) seemed always at peace.
    Now it is the dog's turn to be at peace.
    His reply the next day showed me God was in the mix, (Believer under way!)
    just as God was in the mix by sending me a woman who could save digits and fix scars and lumps.

    Blessed are the merciful; they shall receive mercy.....Matthew 5
    Blessed are those who mourn; they shall be comforted.....Matthew 5

    We move closer to Easter daily. A Resurrection reminder.
    But first, a time to draw near, and a time of exquisite pain.

    Blessed are the Rosel's, they shall be loved by God deeply.......Keystone 5

The Attacker (5/15/09)

The sun was just peeking from the Eastern skies. Ephesians 6:12 [37 kb]

Out in the prison’s yard, some huge Sheriff’s buses were illuminated by the soft glow coming from the lights all over from the tall lamp posts. Their engines were turned on, warming up, before the buses would take the inmates to the different courts where they would have their trials.

Orange-uniformed men were lined up in pairs, joined together with handcuffs and chained, forming a long line. They already had their breakfast and had their morning medications prior to going to courts. Some were fidgeting, as they waited to board those buses.

All of a sudden, all hell broke loose! Two men were engaged in a fight, using weapons they made secretly for a while. Deputies called for help on the radio, both for custody back-up and medical staff, as well.

When the air was cleared and the other inmates were secured, one man was down on the floor. He sustained multiple gashes but two of them were deep. One cut was vertically etched from his left ear going down to the jaw line. The other dangerous cut was horizontal on his left neck, close to the jugular vein. Pool of blood dripped all over the floor. Holding his bleeding neck, he was pointing at the other inmate few feet away, being guarded by the other deputies.

The other man being accused was not hurt. There were no lacerations nor any other signs of trauma. He was obviously very agitated as he was being questioned by those deputies, while the medical staff started treating the other man on the floor. They cleaned the wounds and controlled the bleeding. That man was sent to the nearby hospital.

When the investigation was finalized, it turned out to be that the “downed man who was accusing the other inmate” was the attacker and the other one who didn’t have injury was the one attacked. The deputies found out that it was the second attempt to attack the unhurt man. Both attacks on him failed. He was well-prepared after the first attempt on him, that when the second attempt was done, he was able to defend himself and ended up injuring his attacker severely.

[Source: NLT Bible ]:

We also have an “accuser of the brethren.” Satan and his army of demons are the enemies of God and of everything good.

“Because God’s children are human beings – made of flesh and blood – Jesus also became flesh and blood by being born in human form. For only as a human being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of the Devil, who had the power of death.” –Hebrews 2:14

Because of what Jesus had done [dying on the cross], we, who live in constant fear of death shouldn’t be afraid anymore. Jesus had freed us from that fear so we can live for Him. When we belong to God, we know that death is only the portal that leads into “eternal life”. [“Thank You Lord!].

Paul warned us, too that we also battle against the evil forces of Satan, who is a vicious fighter. But to be able to withstand their attacks, we must depend on God’s strength and use every piece of His armor. We face an army whose goal is to defeat Christ’s church. When we believe in Christ, they become our enemies. They will try any device to turn us away from the Lord.

Fear not! For God has provided His supernatural power to defeat Satan and his army, through His Holy Spirit within us. So, arm yourselves with God’s armor.

Let us be strong in the Lord's mighty power. Let's put on His whole armor to resist the enemy's attacks: put on the sturdy belt of truth and the body armor of God's righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News, so that we are well-prepared. We will need faith in every battle as our shield to stop the fiery arrows aimed by Satan and his army. Let us put on salvation as our helmet, not forgetting the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. Let's pray at all times, on every occasion in the power of the Holy Spirit. We must stay alert and be persistent in our prayers for all Christians everywhere. [Ephesians 6:10-18].
