Wounds Heal When We Serve
Everyday, all through out our lives, we encountered trials, and challenges that besets us, occupy much of our time, effort, and sometimes, resources. They are in our work place, in our circle of friends, in our community and civic activities, and they are within the bonds of family and relationships.
Sometimes we struggle to overcome them. Most of the time we needs others, especially the ones that we love the most to understand us, strengthen us, show the love and support, and thereby win the battle.
Me and my Mrs. Thoughtskoto was watching last night a feel good movie entitled "A Walk in my Shoes"
"Ever judge someone just by looking at them? Of course, weve all made snap judgments about people. But what if we really got to know them? How would our opinions change? And what if we were forced to become them how would the shoes fit then? Stressed-out high school teacher Trish Fahey cant understand her students lack of effort and why their parents dont seem to care. This is especially true of Justin Kremer, a popular, skateboard-loving, basketball star who is underperforming in her class. Trish has him suspended from the team and quickly chalks up the situation as a case of bad parenting. This perspective dramatically changes when Trish meets Molly, a mysterious stranger intent on helping her see things differently. When Trish wrecks her car, Molly is there as Trish wakes to find herself living the life of Cindy Kremer, the woman she has personally judged and criticized. Trish discovers that there is often more to the story and learns a powerful lesson that affects everyone she interacts with. Her husband, her daughter, the ex-Marine next door No one is left unchanged."
Wounds heal when we serve others. Pain is gone when we serve others too. In fact, it is the truth that as we serve others, we realize our worries, our problems, our challenges are lighter compared to others. We need to let go of that selfish behavior, and don't have to harbor that feeling of hatred, vanity, jealousy, and selfishness because it creates a negative feeling and makes us old.
I've said here one time in my post, that when you worry too much, when you only think of yourself, you will look old, you will have so much wrinkles, you'll become ugly. Now if you find so many ugly people everyday, try to look at yourself and the way you look through others, and the way you conduct your life, or handle your problems, and challenges, and see in the mirror, how you too look like.
I believe that service to others is also serving serving Him. He said a long long time ago, that if you have done it to the least of my fellows, you've done it unto Me. As we serve others, our wounds, or whatever feeling or memory that we keep and weighing heavily upon us, we lighten the load, and we feel better, much happier and eventually healed.
