We are all wounded people, and all those wounds left alone to infect will hinder our ability to know God more intimately. They hinder our ability to relate well. For this reason it is with each wound healed that the voice of God grows that much clearer. That is my ultimate goal; for the voice of God to grow clearer and clearer to me each day. I hear God's voice in my soul clearer than I did a year ago, a month ago, yesterday because I have gone into myself with God's guidance and "Unchangeable Light". That has not been easy, and is often met with some fear and some hurt, but the Unchangeable Light goes with me into the darkened and FORGOTTEN recesses of my inner self to shed some of that light upon the wounds which have affected my ability to hear the voice of God more clearly and thus to relate to Him.
But as light is shed on a wound, I am faced with a choice. Will I continue to anesthetize it, numbing it, forgetting about it and thus hindering my ability to know God a bit more clearly?
Will I FEEL the pain so I can realize what is wrong and then go about the fearful and sometimes painful process of mending so that I may hear the voice of God a bit more clearly and know him more intimately?
