does time really heal all wounds? It’s a question that we all will ask ourselves eventually in our lives. When we get hurt so much and time just doesn’t seem to make it any better. The truth is no. Time does not make it better(and I’m not just saying this based on my own experience). Lilly Tomlin says that “hurt plus time equals comedy” and that’s true. I was asked a question by someone about this and I was like “yeah of course time heals all wounds, what are you talking about?” But then I thought about it and I was like, “wait no, maybe time doesn’t help that much”. There are so many questions that come along with this one little phrase like:
No, is time does not heal all wounds, time makes them hurt a little less(maybe) but it does not heal them. Then I watched a video by Sadie Robertson(link: Sadie’s Video) and even though I’m not in college, her message hit me hard, to the point where I was in tears on the floor, just asking God to please help make it better.
See a couple months ago, I was hurt by someone very close to me and it made me begin to question my self worth. Because maybe to her, that text was just a simple end of a friendship, but to me, it was “you were not good enough” and “I’m happier without you” and that hurt more than anything else I’ve ever felt. People kept telling me to move on, forget about it, don’t let it get to you, you’re so much better than that, or give it time it will get better. So I gave it time, I tried to forget about it but it’s hard to just move on from someone who was like a sister to you. But I realized what I was missing, in all the hurt and pain, I had God, but I didn’t use Him as much as I could have. Y’all, time does not heal all wounds, God does, God wraps your wound up in a bandage and helps it heal. And yes, there will always be a scar and yes, you will always remember what happened to you but God takes all of the pain away. God makes it so that you can look back on your hurt, your pain, and be okay. He makes it where you can remember that breakup, end of friendship, death, or whatever had caused you pain and learn from it. Where you aren’t still hurt by it but you look at it and see it as a lesson, you see it as a way that you can encourage others, you begin to see that hurt as a purpose and a drive to help share how God helped you! God heals your wounds! Psalm 147:3 says “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” It does not say that time heals the broken hearted, it says God! If you want more verses about God healing you check out Jeremiah 33:6 or Psalm 30:2.
So to conclude this blog post(and if your still reading this wow, you deserve an award). Do not wait on time because it will fail you. Call upon the One who has never failed anyone. Call upon God, because He actually does make it better. I love you guys so much and I hope that this helped y’all.
