From when we first enter this world, and sometimes even in our mother’s womb, our hearts are under attack because we live in a fallen world. Whether it’s a father or mother who in their humanity didn’t see what you are needing, a teacher who passes over the poem you’ve written, or a coach who benches you because you’re not the fastest, our hearts are wounded from early on. It could be a classmate who mocks your favorite shirt or a girlfriend who dumps you for the stronger guy, but the assaults on our hearts are many.
What happens to any wound that is left untreated? It gets infected. It festers and the infection spreads. The same thing happens to our hearts. In middle school someone points out the thing we are most insecure about, and for the rest of our lives we carry around the lie that everyone noticed our weaknesses and we must hide them.
The only way for an infected wound to be healed is to have the dirty bandage removed, lance the wound and allow all the infection and toxins to drain. In the same way, the wounds of our hearts must be treated, but many of us have never been shown how to do this, so we just slap a bandaid on it and move on. All the while the toxins of our wounded hearts are seeping into every aspect of our lives.
Many of us have felt the sting of a wound to the heart, and there is nothing like the comfort found in the company of people who know us well and accept us. Scorpions, Scones and Your Favorite Playlist will serve as a twenty-one day soundtrack for you conversation with God. Along the way you will be challenged to look at the condition of your own heart and be given a guide to asking the deeper questions pertaining to its wounds. Everyone’s journey is different, but our Heavenly Father longs to heal all our hearts so we can live out this journey in freedom.
