Have you ever had a cut or scrape that never wanted to heal? Doesn’t matter what you do, it just doesn’t want to get better.

Then you give up. Rip the bandaid off and just air it out. And finally it heals.

We can carry the heaviest of burdens. We can attempt to fix a million of our mistakes. More often than not the sooner we stop covering it up the sooner we find healing.

Yes, we will feel exposed. Leaving our deepest wounds exposed can feel terrifying. But, as long as we stay covered, hidden, we will never be free.
