Wounded Spirits.

I wrote this article (below) after God showed me how my vast heart was broken and revealed to me how many years I carried these wounds in and with me that were my excuses to run from Him and that were my excuses to remain in bondage trying to solve things on my own in which is a proven fact that no man can offer a perfect solution except for JESUS who (was and IS and is to come) the only one who DID. It is funny that I did not post this first since it was my first article after I finally surrender completely to HIM. But here it is now. I pray it encourages you to because it is inspired by HIM.


Wounded Spirits.
By Richard White (C)(2004)

For my iniquities have gone over my head; Like a heavy burden they are to heavy for me, my wounds are foul and festering because of my foolishness. ( Psalm 38: 4-5)

The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity; but a wounded spirit who can bear? Proverbs 18:14

Going through life with hidden pains and wounds never dealt with will always continue to haunt us if we never learn to face them. We spend our waking moments subconsciously programming our wounds to be ignored so we can start our days continuously carrying our heavy burdens we choose to not deal with so we can still try to survive through our days. But in split seconds, these minute panic attacks, flashes of scars we try to forget, suddenly appear and we desperately seek a remedy to put a new band-aid on our infected wounds once again so we can continue to try to survive through our daily lives seeking temporary cures. When we sleep, we always sleep restless, tossing and turning because of the nightmares, the phantoms, we think we removed from our hearts by ignorance of self , but not enough sleep aids or substances can cure these phantoms of our wounds so they continue to haunt us.

Running thoughts of our past resentments pierce through our remedy induced state and while we try to sleep we seem very tired when we arise to begin our next day, and the process continues continuously between our chosen ignorance and our deep rooted depressions like a war without and end. We go on existing rubbing salt in our wounds unconsiously.
So many years we live in the same dramatic scenarios that keep us in bondage to our scars and wounds, spending a lifetime of money on prescriptions or illegal substances that will never ever cure the infectious wounds we are to stubborn to learn to deal with. We go to jail, institutions, some commit suicide, or waste more money on therapists, psychologists, and psychiatrists because we will never give ourselves a chance or a choice to seek out the True cure for our diseases and waste our God given lives over to our own self-made deceptions. Some of us unknowingly choose to believe in the lie or lie to ourselves that nothing can possibly cure our wounds. Hopelessly we grow helplessly down the spiral of self- deception to never seeking the cure, the One who is the Cure. His name is Jesus.

We lie to ourselves saying, "that's to easy, how can a belief in some religious idealism cure what I have, or we say "I tried that and it never worked". Has everything you have done so far ever truly worked at all?
How many religions or self-help programs have you tried and they truly worked? None. I guarantee you we all fall short and we will eventually go back into our old wounded ways because our hearts are still hardened to the real Truth who can set us free for good. And its not just what I believe, the Bible says its what our Creator believes in (John 8:36):

"Therefore if the Son makes you free, you are free indeed".

Not allowing Jesus to heal your inner depths, your deep dark abyss of festering wounds will cause you to continue in your misery filled life in bondage of incompleteness. Total surrender to Him will allow your life a freedom you never had or ever experienced. The answer is always there in front of our faces every given moment. Just take a true look at the creation all around you and you will truly see your Creator. We have to let go of what we are holding on to that leads us to utter madness and panic attacks and submit to The True God that truly loves us. The world offers nothing but temporary solutions also known as band-aids but never a final solution. God has the final solution. JESUS. You have a choice to continue in your madness or let Jesus finally make you free indeed. He died and rose again so we could have life abundantly.

Our Loving Father says:

He who covers his sins will not prosper,
but whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy. (Proverbs 28:13)


Trust in the Lord with all thine heart;
And lean not to your own under understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths.
(Proverbs 3:5,6).


Do not be wise in your own eyes; lean not to your own understanding, Fear the lord and depart from evil,
it will be a health to your flesh and strength to your bones.
(Proverbs 3:7,8).

What will you choose?

Prayer of True Repentance. For Honest eyes only.

As I surf the web daily to see what I can write about that the Lord wants me to write, I come across findings such as my next Posted find that will be below. When You read this prayer I posted, I pray it will make you examine yourself to see if you are definitely walking in Jesus this very moment. I know it made me do this.


{WARNING. This prayer will convict you. Be prepared to surrender your heart to Him}.

Heavenly Father,

We come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek Your direction and guidence.

We know Your Word says, "Woe to those who call evil good and good evil (Isaiah 5:20),
But that is what exactly "We" have done.

We have lost our Spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values.

We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery.

We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.

We have killed the Unborn and called it Choice.

We have shot Abortionist and called it justifiable.

We have Neglected to discipline our children and called it Self-Esteem.

We abused power and called it Politics.

We have coveted our nieghbor's possessions and called it Ambition.

We have Polluted the Air with Profanity and Pornography and called it Freedom of Expression.

We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our Fore-Fathers and called it Enlightenment.

Search us, OH GOD, and know our hearts today; Cleanse us from every sin and set us Free.

In JESUS name.


{This prayer was given in Kansas at the opening session of their Senate by Minister Joe Wright. I wish we all Christians HAD THE GUTS like this Pastor in this country but it seems WE are all selfish cowards sometimes not willing to stand up for our Faith and fight to SAVE SOULS even if we lovingly offend.
Let us all pray for more Laborers of Christ and more boldness in the church to step out and win those to JESUS who saved us from the very pit of HELL by dying for us in our place and rescuing us from that terrible place we so richly deserve. Let us never HEAR from our Lord's Lips on the Day of Judgement "Depart from me You cursed into the everlasting punishment for the DEVIL and his angels", The Lord says in His tears to you. }

May you continue to strive and be awake daily so you and I will be with HIM forever.
